How To Control Third-Party Apps On Facebook?

Don't let malicious third-party apps steal your Facebook data.

As recently announced by Facebook, users will get an alerting notification whenever they use Facebook credentials to connect with a third-party app, aiming to notify users about how their own Facebook login details will be used by such apps in the future. However, we sometimes forget about the existence of some very old sessions in the past. In case you’re worried about your privacy, it's not hard to address such a problem. Here’re ways to control and prevent third-party apps from stealing data from your Facebook account.
