Whenever you are using VK, you are likely to give access to other applications – oftentimes it may happen that you even don’t notice but simply click on “Ok.” Yet, not always giving the access to your profile to the third-party applications may be safe. Our step-by-step guide shows you how to manage applications on VK and revoke access from the ones you don’t want to use anymore.
- In the first place, you should launch the browser of yours and access the following website: https://vk.com/.
Our guide will show you how to manage applications on VK, but you need to access your account at first
- On the main webpage of VK, you will actually get to see two forms located on the right: the VK sign in form and the VK sign up form. The VK sign in form is located upper, and you have to use this form in order to access your account on VK.
Confirm that you are not a robot
- In order to enter your VK account, you need to type your email address or phone number in the first field. The second field must be filled with your password. Then, click on the “Log in” button.
You need to give a click to this profile photo of yours
- Eventually, you will be asked to prove that you are a human. Check the box and move further.
In the pop-up menu, you should select the “Settings” menu item
- Once you have entered your account on VK, you need to spot a small profile photo of yours, placed at the top of that page. Click on it in order to trigger a pop-up menu, in which you should select the “Settings” menu item.
On the page of settings, you need to select the “Apps settings” section
- After accessing the page of settings, you will get to see a menu of the settings, placed on the right side. There, you should click on “Apps settings.”
On this page, you are able to manage applications on VK
- Once you have done that, you will get to see a page with the applications you have previously given access to your account to. In order to view what kind of permissions an application has received from you, you should click on a button in the form of a cogwheel, placed near every app.
Such a window shows what rights and permissions an app has; click on the “Remove application” button to revoke the access
- After having seen the type of permission you have given to that application, you actually have two options: either to click on the “Close” button and leave this app working with the same access, or to remove this app by clicking on the “Remove application” text button.
As you can see, that app has been deleted from the list and it doesn’t have any access anymore
- Once you have clicked on the “Remove application” text button, you will get to see that that app has disappeared from the “Apps settings” page.
