How to disable Twitter Graph App to stop Twitter from tracking apps on Android or iOS?


Date: 30 Nov 2014   Posted By: Bhakti Savla     Group: Social Networking    Category: Twitter   

I hear that Twitter has come up with Twitter Graph App to provide tailored experience on Twitter by delivering content of interest to the users. However, with the lurking danger of Twitter spying on our mobile apps usage, I prefer to turn off the Twitter Graph App. Can someone please explain the steps to deactivate or turn off Twitter Graph App on Android or iOS device? Once disabled, is it possible to turn on the Twitter Graph App again? Please share relevant details.

I understand your concern and would be mentioning the steps to disable Twitter Graph App below. However, before that you do need to know that Twitter will only be collecting data about the apps you install and not what you do with those apps. If after understanding this you still want to disable it then here are the steps:
1. Open the Twitter app on your smartphone.
2. In the "Me" tab click on the Gear icon which looks like the Settings icon in most interfaces.
3. Go to Settings and select the account on which you want to do the change.
4. There in the Privacy section you can switch off the "Tailor Twitter based on my apps" option.

Following the same steps you can re-enable this option.
