I authorized access to my account by an application that turned out to not work. Now I want to remove the authorization in case it was malicious. How could I do this?

  1. Go to your account settings.
  2. Click on Security on the left, and then Edit next to "Authorizing applications and sites"
  3. Revoke the site you wish to remove.

    Some things have moved around a bit on the Google account settings page. Now you click Security on the left, then scroll down to "Connected applications and site", and click the Manage Access button.
