A user can navigate to Setting > Security > Apps and websites to see which third-party service has access to their data. The update provides options like removing a third-party service and an updated authorization screen feature. The blog also explained the users on how to manage the connections to third party services.

When connecting with a third-party service for the first time. A new authorization screen will be displayed that lists all information being requested by the third-party. Users can then pick and choose how much information they wish to share.

This comes as an important security feature for those who need to remove third-party access to data like profile information, your username, account type, captions, and photos.

If a user needs to ensure the data requested from third parties. They can utilize the newly updated authorization screen introduction by Instagram. It will list all the information the third party is requesting to access.

The company said It is essential that we protect the data people share with us. We also want to give people more control over data they share with other apps and services.

Instagram has also rolled out a new mode called Restrict globally that would let users stop people who bully them via offensive posts or abusive comments
