How to Remove or Delete Facebook Applications

With so many malicious apps(applications) on Facebook, you may have unknowingly installed or given these applications access to your Facebook account. These malicious applications can post links on your Facebook Wall or your friends' Facebook Walls to malicious websites that can infect your computer and steal your username, password, credit card, and other personal information.

Please continue below.

Here is an easy way to view all your Facebook applications and remove the ones that you are not familiar with:

  1. Ensure that you are logged into your Facebook account.
  2. Click here to go to your Facebook account settings

    The link will take you to the Facebook application settings page and list all the applications that you have given access to your account (see image below). If you are not logged into Facebook, you will be redirected to the login page; just login to continue.

    Facebook Application Settings

  3. Move your mouse over the application and click the "X" or "Remove" button when it appears, to delete the application (see image above). Once the application is removed, it will not have access to your Facebook account anymore.

Remember that malicious applications can use popular names like “YouTube”, “CNN”, and “MSN” to trick you into believing that they are legitimate.

I recommend that you remove all the applications if you are not sure which ones are legitimate.

    What is the thing about winning things like motor cars or other stuff on Facebook? Is that legal?

      Those are scams. They are fake posts created to trick people into sharing, liking or commenting them, which will make them popular.

      Once the scammers behind the fake posts have enough potential victims, they start sending them fake messages,in an attempt to trick them into sending money or personal information in order to collect their so-called prizes.

    I checked my apps and removed quite a few I did not recognize as the fact that all of them were "Public".

    My Facebook is almost all encrypted making it difficult to read anything. I can't even tell if I'm deleting or not. I changed my password and that did nothing. What else can I do?

      You may try accessing your Facebook account from another web browser or on another computer. And, if everything is ok, your web browser or computer may be compromised.
