People are relying more and more on apps to perform a variety of tasks, from social media interactions to online shopping, as technology continues to advance. Inadvertently connecting some of these apps to one’s Google account could result in a variety of issues with all of these apps. Among other things, it might result in unwelcome notifications or unauthorised access to private information. This article will provide step-by-step instructions on how to uninstall an app that is linked to your Google account.
Step 1: Log in to your Google account.
Logging into your account is the first step in uninstalling an app that is associated with your Google account. Any device with an internet connection can be used for this. Continue to the next step once you have logged in.
Step 2: Access the Google Security Settings
Click on your profile picture in the top right corner of the screen after signing into your Google account. There will be a drop-down menu. Select “Google Account” from the drop-down menu. You will then be directed to your account’s home page. Find the “Security” tab on the home page. To access the security options, click on them.
Step 3: Review Third-Party App Access
Scroll down below and find the “Third-party apps with account access” section under the security settings. All of the third-party applications that have access to your Google account will be listed in this section. Review each app in detail and decide which ones you no longer require or use. Once you’ve determined which apps to delete, select “Manage third-party access” to continue.
Step 4: Revoke Access to the App
Look for the app you want to uninstall in the “Manage third-party access” section and click on it. This will show information about the app and the permissions it has. Click the “Remove Access” button to terminate access. The action will be removed from your access after you are asked to confirm it.
Step 5: Verify Removal of Access
It’s crucial to confirm that the app no longer has access to your Google account after revoking access. Re-visit the “Third-party apps with account access” section of the security settings to accomplish this. The app you removed shouldn’t be listed anymore.
It only takes a few simple steps to uninstall an app that is linked to your Google account. To prevent unauthorised access to your sensitive information, it’s crucial to regularly review the apps that have access to your account and remove those that are no longer required.
