Revoke Hootsuite access to a social account

Social network accounts have settings that list which apps can connect to them. When you add 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 if you no longer need to manage the account with Hootsuite.

If you haven't yet removed the account from Hootsuite, revoking will disconnect it, but you won't lose any scheduled content for the account.
