In this guide, we will explain how to remove access to third-party applications from your Google Account. This would prevent applications from using the information associated with this account. If you'd like to sign out of a Google Account, we offer a very detailed tutorial about removing the Google Account from Android devices.
Using Google's login feature is one of the easiest and most convenient ways to sign in to an account. You do not need to create individual accounts for each application. Use a single Google ID instead to sign in to all your apps. All your data and progress will be easily synchronized across all platforms.
But there is also a risk associated with that. Allowing access to your Google Account means that this particular application has access to various information, such as your full name and date of birth. For example, if you give an app access to your Google Drive drive only to download files, you do not realize that they can also view information about editing, creating, or deleting your files. While this is not a hidden tactic since apps clearly mention it in their policies, many users simply accept these policies without reading a word.
Therefore, if you think you have already authorized access to an application or if an application is no longer required, it is better to revoke access. Fortunately, there is an easy way to do it. The process could be done using a desktop computer or a mobile device. Both methods are discussed in depth below.
