You may, at some stage, have given an app access to your Social Media accounts. Finding out how to extract yourself from their system is not as easy... so here's a list of the main networks and how to remove unwanted access.

When you sign up for some services you do so by giving them access to your Twitter account.

You can also give access to several apps via your LinkedIn Account.
