How do I block or unblock an app in Facebook?

Been getting a lot of app request lately. I do not do the apps thing as you never know what you are getting when allowing these apps access to your account. With Timeline it became a bit of a hassle to block apps, so here is how to do just that with little work.
Blocking an app means it won’t be able to access any information about you from Facebook or send you any requests.If you received a request for an app, and you want to block the app:

  1. Go to the App Center
  2. Click the X button next to the request
  3. When you see the yellow box, click the Block (App Name) link

You can add and manage your blocked apps in the Blocked People and Apps section of your Privacy Settings Page.

To block an app you haven’t received a request from:

  1. Navigate to your Privacy Settings Page
  2. Click Manage Blocking across from Blocked People and Apps
  3. In the Block Apps section, type in the app’s name

To unblock an app:

  1. Navigate to your Privacy Settings Page
  2. Click Manage Blocking across from Blocked People and Apps
  3. In the Block Apps section, find the app you want and click Unblock

Note: You’ll need to grant the app permissions again if you would like to re-add it to your profile (timeline).
