    Default MyPermission.org - See how your apps are using your info

    I was using StumbleUpon when I stumbled across a website called MyPermission.org

    The title of the web page was enough to get me to have a closed look. “Take 2 Minutes to Clean Your Apps Permissions” which lists some popular applications and sites in which we may have granted permission to access our personal information. Google, Twitter, Facebook and more.

    Any application that has permission to access your personal information in your profile on different websites potentially puts that information at risk on being stolen or “Phished.” Facebook for example could put your friends’ information at risk as well.

    MyPermissions doesn’t ask for your personal information or login details. You simply fill out that information once you arrive at each of the services website. Then you can easily revoke access from the permissions page.

    MyPermissions will also let you sign up for a monthly email reminder to check your apps permissions helping you keep your private information your own. The email reminder will come at the first of every month.

    Head over to MyPermission.org and tighten up your security. It’s quick, easy and you and your friends will be thankful.
