When Israel-based entrepreneur Avi Charkham realized he had various social media accounts that weren’t being monitored for third-party access he decided to do something about it. Charkham quickly realized that many of us grant access to our social media accounts on a daily basis, yet checking who still has access can be time consuming since each account must be accessed individually.
That’s where the idea for MyPermissions comes into play. Using the system users can link all of their social media accounts into one interface at which point they can examine who has permission to access their social media accounts (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) and then block certain developers with the click of a button.
Speaking to Mashable Charkham says of the program:
“I kept connecting to services, and one day I was looking for the list to remove some of them, I found that Facebook hid them behind four or five links…and thought to myself, ‘There’s no way people can find this.’ Two clicks I could live with, but four or five made it clear they were hiding it.”
The site can be found at mypermissions.org and cleaning up permissions takes about 2 minutes to complete, far faster then navigating through who knows how many confusing interfaces to reach the same goal.
Here’s a screenshot of all the included networks you can currently manage with MyPermissions:
