So, I know we’re all tweeting and pinning and posting things on Facebook – just about all the time – BUT have you ever thought WHO you are giving permission to around the world wide web?
Maybe you’re like huh? What do you mean? And YES I know it’s “whom” but I used WHO to get your attention.
Give Your Permission Wisely!
I highly recommend you scan your permissions with MyPermissions!
(it’s a new and FREE app).
All you have to do is SCAN the permissions you’ve given with one click – and then be shocked at just how many companies are accessing your information.

Scan Your Permissions
I just noticed that Permission is like Per – my Mission – you are granted access to __________.
I’m serious about that shocked part. I scanned mine and I had to literally scroll and scroll through all the companies and websites I had given permission to. It showed everything from American Idol to Pandora. Some sites I was kind of happy to see and had forgotten about. Others made me scratch my head wondering where that had come from - oh yeah I visited that one years ago! Get rid of that linky.
Editing and or Deleting access to you is easy.
You just click on Edit and then Remove or choose that an app is trusted.
Whatever you choose – you should know who you’re giving permission to!
There is a way to check who has access to your info on Facebook, but that’s for Facebook and it can be difficult to find. MyPermissions is One Site – One Click.
It’s a new and FREE app! Use it!
