How to remove posting authority from a Steem App

in steemconnect •  5 months ago

The amazing thing about the Steem ecosystem is that it is growing stronger and more diverse every day. Over the last year or so, I have investigated many apps and services. Some I continue to use and some I completely forgot about.

Periodically, I do an audit of the apps that I have granted posting rights to.

How to find which apps can post on your behalf

The following is my current list.

If you want to see which apps can post on your behalf, then go to Type in your Steem User ID in place of "youruserid."

Scroll down to the Authorities section, which is located on the left-hand side of the page.

The last item in this list is your public posting key.

How to revoke access

In order to complete the following instructions, you will need to have a Steem Connect account.

  1. Copy the the following link into your preferred web browser and press the Enter button:
    (Replace "nameofapp" with the app name as listed on Steemd)
  2. Confirm that you are revoking access to the correct app and click Continue.
  3. Enter your Steem User Id and Private Active Key. Click Sign in.
  4. Congratulations! You have successfully revoked posting authority.
  5. Go back to and make sure that the app's posting authority was properly revoked.

Final Thoughts

It is important to know which apps you have given posting authority to. It is also important to remove that authority if you do not use the app.

  1. Have you granted posting authority to an app?
  2. Have you removed posting authority from an app?
  3. Can you remember that you have don?

I look forward to hearing from you. See you in the comments section.

I found that every so often I unwittingly vote for @minowbooster posts, so I revoked access to my posting account. That's a useful link for revoking posting authority. @ironshield


That is part of the reason I created this post. I noticed that I was "unwittingly" voting for accounts. It must be because of access I had granted in the past.

saya baru mendenganya dari anda @sumatranate. saya kan mencoba menelusuri lebih lanjut informasi anda, terima kasih sudah berbagi

I just made the step by step, to revoke the publication access to two applications that certainly bothered me. I can say, it works quickly and efficiently. Thanks!


I am glad that these steps helped you out.

saya kurang mengerti maksud anda temanku, untuk apa kita menghapusnya?


Tidak harus menghapus apaun kalau belum berikan permisi kepada aplikasi dulu.

This is very good information. Do not know more about this.
