Manage Apps & Websites You Logged In Using Facebook

I logged in Facebook this evening only to see this...
Protecting Your Information We understand the importance of keeping you data safe, and are making it easier for you to control which apps you share information with.
You can go to the apps and websites section of your settings anytime to see the apps and websites you have used Facebook to log into. You can also remove the ones you don't want connected to Facebook anymore.
I was about asking myself why Facebook had to display that info on my new feed and came to realise that it's a basic way to inform users that we all can now manage apps and websites we logged in using Facebook. See screenshot below...

Goto Settings
Manage Apps And Websites Logged In With Facebook
Sounds good right? Yeah, really good.

Brief Insights...
There are many websites online which requires you to login with your email address and password or Create an Account with them in order to make use of their services and at same time add some social buttons below asking you to ease yourself the stress by clicking on one of the buttons.

Facebook is usually available in most cases. You may see a button like "Sign in with Facebook" or related depending on the website format.

Now if you didn't see this notification on your new feed, keep calm I will show you how to manage apps and websites you have signed in using Facebook. Just take a look at how you can possible manage apps and websites you logged in using Facebook.

HOW TO MANAGE APPS & WEBSITES LOGGED IN USING FACEBOOK

To get this done, you are to:
  • Log in Facebook
  • Tap on the 3dash at the top-right corner of your screen
    Click 3dash
  • Scroll down and click on Settings
  • After that, click on Account Settings
  • Now scroll down and select Apps

Right there you will see three options but since we are concerned on managing apps and websites logged in with Facebook, you are to choose "Logged In With Facebook".

Click on "Expired" tab to see expired apps and websites you previously signed in using Facebook.

Yeah before conclusion, One question...

Is it safe to manage Apps & Websites logged in with Facebook?

Well, for me personally it's a very good idea to check from time to time apps which are using your Facebook Account to access their services. So you can remove apps and websites running with your Facebook Account without your consent.

And you should also know that apps which are logged in with your Facebook Account now have access to your private information. That's why you should always check and manage them.

The answer to the question is... Yes, it's safe.

What do you think? Is this feature helpful? Have you noticed any other feature recently added? Are you still finding it difficult to manage apps and websites you logged in using Facebook? Let me know in comment section...

More peace and blessings...
