Level 5 jbenson2 2,146 Posted February 12, 2012 Level 5 Share Posted February 12, 2012 Take a few minutes and clean up your apps permissions using mypermissions.org There are some impressive recommendations from folks (on the right side of the web page). From Wired Magazine: "You may trust Google to keep your email safe, but do you trust a three-month-old Y Combinator-funded startup created by three college kids? Or a side project from an engineer working in his 20 percent time? How about a disgruntled or curious employee of one of these third-party services?" I was blown away by how many apps had my permission... but not any more. The best thing you could do, right now, is to log into each service you care about and revoke access to the apps you no longer use or care about. Especially those apps that have access to your personal info in powerhouses such as Facebook, Gmail, or Evernote. . . Link to comment
