I have been using Flickr for a very long time. In fact I had to check the account details to find out when I first created my Flickr account. It has been more than a decade and I still keep using Flickr off and on. In all these years, I have given so many permissions to so many third-party apps to access Flickr account and the images from my account. Some of these apps no longer exist, but the permissions for these apps were still active in my Flickr account. So I decided to clean-up the Flickr account and revoke all these third-party app permissions.
Here is how you can revoke the third-party apps permissions that you gave in the past from your Flickr account:
- First of all visit Flickr in your web browser at https://www.flickr.com/ and login to your account.
- From the top-right corner pull down Flickr menu and choose Settings from there.
- On the account settings page, choose Sharing & Extending section.
- On the sharing and extending page, scroll down to the very bottom to find the Account Links section. You will find all the third-party apps listed here that have permission to access your Flickr account. Click on Edit next to an app that you want to remove.
- On the next-screen, it will give more details about the selected third-party app including the kind of permission that app has. Click on the Remove permission? to proceed with revoking.
- Finally, select the checkbox in the next screen and click on Revoke Permissions button.
So this is how you can revoke permissions of any of the third-party apps that you had previously permitted to access your account. You have to repeat these steps for each of the third-party apps again and again to remove all the apps. The permissions can be given by the users again if they desire to use those apps again.
