Security is a huge topic of concern these days and sometimes I feel it’s too little, too late. We (and me especially) should have worried about this ages ago. With the release of the super secure and impenetrable Blackphone, it’s evident that this trend isn’t just catching on, it’s also proving to be quite profitable. Today we are going to show you how you can tell which of your apps have access to your online profiles, like Facebook, Twitter etc and how to revoke it.

There are many apps that fulfill this purpose, but a good one is called Online Privacy Shield by MyPermissions, which can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store. This app will be able to conduct a search and scan for the apps that have access to online profiles, whether they are or were on your smartphone or tablet. The online profiles that it searches for are Facebook, Twitter, Google account, Yahoo!, LinkedIn, Dropbox, Instagram and Flickr. If you need them to add another, you are able to suggest a service you would like to have checked.
