Does the NSA PRISM scandal make you wary of digitally sharing your personal information? Online security tools company MyPermissions has upgraded its app to help you better understand and control how apps and websites are accessing your personal data online. Using MyPermissions Cleaner you can find out which sites and apps are trying to access your personal information and them approve or remove these apps based on how you feel about this. The app offers you real-time mobile alerts, so as soon as a site tries to gain access, you can get an alert.
Here is more about how it works from the press release:
MyPermissions scans connected application permissions pages across social networks and cloud services, and has tracked the permissions of nearly 300,000 apps. Its mobile, live alerts for Facebook, Google, Twitter, DropBox, and Instagram let consumers know whenever an application accesses their personally identifiable information (PII), and gives them the choice to allow access to their data, or revoke it.
