Are you tired of the app permissions you have to keep track on Dropbox, Facebook, Flickr, Google, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, and/or Yahoo? You'll want to check out MyPermissions, a simple website which gives you direct links for quickly accessing e-mail notification settings in all eight of the aforementioned services.
If you're finding it difficult to keep track of what apps have access to your account information, this website is for you. Personally, I barely use apps on these services, and if I ever do, I always go back and disable and/or remove immediately after. I do know many people who have many Facebook apps, for example, and simply forget they do. Instead of blindly clicking around Facebook to find the right webpage, just go directly to facebook.com/settings/?tab=applications.
I'm serious, go to the link now. If you don't pay attention to what you do on Facebook, you'll be surprised about all the apps you have installed. I just checked mine and there was an app I had forgotten about, so I've removed it and I'm back to a single one.
MyPermissions doesn't require access to any of your online accounts. It's really just a webpage you can bookmark to easily access each service's app permissions webpage, assuming you're logged in to the service in question. Alternatively, you can just bookmark the ones for the services you actually use. Also, there's a monthly reminder to check the page, courtesy of If This Then That.
