Manage third-party apps & services with access to your account

To help you safely share your data, Google lets you give third-party apps and services access to different parts of your Google Account. Third-party apps and services are created by companies or developers that aren’t Google.

For example, you may download an app that helps you schedule workouts with friends. This app may request access to your Google Calendar and Contacts to suggest times and friends for you to meet up with.

Sharing your Google data with Apps

Review what a third party can access

You can review the type of account access a third party has as well as the Google services it has access to.

  1. Go to the Security section of your Google Account.
  2. Under “Third-party apps with account access,” select Manage third-party access.
  3. Select the app or service you want to review.

Remove third-party account access

If you gave Google Account access to a third-party app or service you no longer trust or want to use, you can remove its access to your Google Account. The app or service won’t be able to access any more info from your Google Account, but you may need to request that they delete the data they already have.

  1. Go to the Security section of your Google Account.
  2. Under “Third-party apps with account access,” select Manage third-party access.
  3. Select the app or service you want to remove.
  4. Select Remove Access.

Important: If you remove account access from a third-party app or service, it may retain info you provided from:

  • When you signed in with your Google Account
  • When you granted additional Google Account access to the app or service

Report a third-party app or service

Follow these steps if you believe a third-party app or service is misusing your data, like creating spam, impersonating you, or using your data in harmful ways.

  1. Go to the Apps with access to your account section of your Google Account. You might need to sign in.
  2. Select the app you want to report and then Report this app.
