Warning Removing a Facebook Application

When signing up for many Freebies or Samples on Facebook you may have noticed that on several Facebook freebies you have to allow an application before you can get the sample. What you may have not noticed is that these applications are requesting your permission to do different functions in and from your Facebook account. The one that concerns me the most is the “Post to Facebook as me”. When you allow an application when registering for something (i.e samples) you can remove this immediately from your Facebook account.

Personally I have no applications in my account. If something requires an application to register, I then removed it immediately.

We have the step by step procedure for removing these application below.

  • When you allow the App notice you are allowing the App owner to post as you on Facebook
