Social Media Quick Tip: Remove Unwanted Applications on Facebook

Facebook, Lauri Stevens, law enforcement, police, QuickTips, SM Use, social media | Comments Off on Social Media Quick Tip: Remove Unwanted Applications on Facebook

If you’ve you clicked through a link on Facebook and installed something you wish you hadn’t, it’s important to delete the application as soon as possible. And even if you haven’t, it’s good practice to check your Facebook account every now and then — once a month or so — to make sure you haven’t inadvertently installed harmful apps.

Here how to do it: In the upper right pull-down menu next to Home, select Account Settings. Next, choose Apps. You will see a list of all the applications you’ve installed.

To the right of each you can:



  1. Edit settings for each application
  2. Click the X to the right of Edit and remove them altogether.

If you’re unsure of an application’s worth, I recommend option #2.
