Third-party sites & apps with access to your child’s account

Third-party sites & apps with access to your child’s account

Parents who provided consent for their child's continued use of their Google Account can control whether their children may give third-party apps and sites access to different parts of their account. By default, your child can allow third-party apps and sites to access their account information.

To manage your child’s ability to connect their account to third-party apps and sites, follow the steps below.

Note: Third-party apps and sites are created by companies or developers that aren’t Google.

Control access to third-party sites & apps

Third-party apps may request access to sensitive information from your child’s Google Account. Sensitive information can include your child’s location, selfies, and communications with family and friends. Learn about the risks.

  1. Go to families.google.com. You may need to sign in.
  2. Below "Members," select your child.
  3. Select Account info and thenMore and then Third-party apps with account access
  4. Turn "Allow third-party apps to access XX account" on or off by toggling the switch.

Note: When you allow access, you can see a full list of the third-party apps and sites with permission to your child's account. If you don't allow access, all of the listed third-party apps and sites will lose access to your child's account and may partially or completely lose functionality.

Manage third-party sites & apps

You can manage sites and apps with account access with your child’s help.

Have your child:

  1. Go to the Apps with access to your account section of their Google Account. They might need to sign in.
  2. To review what level of account access a site or app has, select it.
  3. To disconnect your child’s account from a site or app, select Remove Access and then OK.
