I have set up 3-4 third party programs that are NOT a part of the HubSpot integrations, with two of them being Databox and StartaFire.

Currently there is no way for me to see all the programs I have granted access to within HubSpot that have not been "approved".

I'd like to see something like Twitter has ( where you can see what programs you have authorized, and have an easy way to revoke access when needed.

Was very surprised to realize that this is not already baked into the HubSpot platform!
