When you’re into travel, you usually sign up for all kinds of promotions, websites and apps to help your travels go smoother. But did you know that many of them require access to your personal information? I bet you’d be surprised to find out how many sites/apps can access your inbox and contacts, know your location, and even post in your name.
Many apps make it difficult to find out that they’re accessing your information—and make it even more difficult to revoke their access. That’s where Israel-based entrepreneur Avi Charkham comes in. He created MyPermissions, a site and apps (Android & iOS) that does all the dirty work for you and it’s free. It takes two minutes to use to clean up your app permissions. It also offers monthly reminders to review your app permissions later down the road.
I just gave it a shot and learned that dozens of my apps had all kinds of access. With MyPermissions, you can even pick and choose which apps/sites you want to revoke access to.
