Is it safe to give permission to Third Party Websites?


Are you using any Third-Party applications or tools in your blog? 

If yes, then I have one doubt and can you please help me in understanding or clearing my doubt about using these tools.

Though, I am already using some of the tools with my blogs but still I am not much clear about the functionality of these tools. My question is that How these tools work?

Giving or Revoking Third Party Access from your Google Plus Permission page - BloggingFunda

I guess that like me, you already have given a few third-party applications or websites access to your Google, Facebook, Twitter account etc.  

Do you know that when you give access,  keeps that access forever or at least until you revoke it.

Some applications also required permission for your personal data used by those third-party tools.  

For your safe side, you should regularly check your lists of connected services on the websites you use and remove services you no longer use at all.

 How to Secure Your Online Accounts?

Did you ever noticed after giving permission to these third-party tools or app to access our email ids, what type of information is being used by these tools or how these tools are using our personal information from our profiles.

I guess no one cares about these questions and we are just using these third-party tools with our blogs or websites as these are free and helping us in getting email list, traffic etc.

Do you ever try to edit the permissions which these tools automatically select for using later on.

If you are not taking any care about these doubts then are you welcoming the hidden security breath for your technical details and personal details as well.
