Now’s a good time for Facebook users to take a closer look at the apps and websites they’ve granted permission to view their information. You may think you haven’t granted permission for any apps to look at your info. But if you’ve played a game, taken a quiz, or entered a contest, there’s a good chance you have. Let’s learn how to check.

Start by opening Facebook, clicking on the drop-down arrow at the top-right, and choosing Settings.

When the Settings section opens, click on Apps and Websites on the left-hand side.
