Revoke Hootsuite access to a social account

Social accounts have settings that list which apps can connect to the account. When you connect a social account to Hootsuite, the Hootsuite app gets authorized in these settings as a connected app. Remove Hootsuite from these settings to revoke its access to your social account.

Revoke Hootsuite's access from a social account if you no longer need to manage it with Hootsuite. If an account hasn't yet been removed from Hootsuite, revoking will disconnect it.
