Manage and revoke oAuth access to an outlook.com account

Consider the following scenario.

You grant access to your outlook.com account from different devices that support oAuth (like Windows Phone) or oAuth enabled applications.

My questions:

  • Where can I view and manage the list of devices and applications that have access to my outlook.com account using oAuth?
  • How can I revoke access to my outlook.com account for one or more of these devices and applications from within my outlook.com account?

Things I have already tried:

  • Check the 'Your devices' section in the outlook.com account. This section is empty as the outlook.com account has not been added as the primary account of the device, but as an additional email account.
  • Change the password of the outlook.com account. => devices are still syncing as a password change does not seem to revoke existing tokens.
  • Enable/disable two-step authentication => devices are still syncing as this does not seem to revoke existing tokens

Anyone knows how I can manage oAuth access to an outlook.com account?

Thank you!

How are you trying to access "Your devices" in Outlook.com? Please mention the steps.

- I go to outlook.com and login to my account

- I go to "Account settings"

- From the top menu I select "Devices -> Your Devices"

- This page shows no devices. The same for the pages "Apps & games devices", "Music devices", "Movies & TV devices"

As mentioned by you “Things I have already tried:”, is it through web or app?

This is through the website.

About EAS and the link your provided.

I'm using the steps described on that link. But as far as I know, Windows Phone 8 uses OAuth, and not EAS for Outlook.com.

Hi,

This section is empty as the particular outlook.com account has not been added as the primary account of the device, but as an additional email account. In order to see the difference/changes in "Your devices", I suggest you to please make that particular Outlook.com account as the primary account and check.

Hope this helps in resolving the issue. If the issue persists, do get back to us. We will be happy to assist you.

Hi, thank you for the suggestion. Unfortunately, this does not solve my problem, as this is exactly my problem...

I want to be able to revoke access to my account if the account is not the primary account of the device.

If I set it as the primary account, the problem is not resolved but shifted to the account that was previously set as the primary account.

I addition, this problem is not limited to Windows Phone, but it affects all apps that connect to outlook.com accounts using OAuth as described here: https://dev.outlook.com/RestGettingStarted.

If access cannot be revoked centrally from within the account, this seems like a big security issue to me. So I really hope this is possible.

I had the same problem - looked everywhere and could not find where to revoke OAuth tokens for connected apps. I finally found it today though.

1. Sign in to Outlook.com

2. Click your user icon at top right

3. Click "View Account". This takes you to an account overview page on account.microsoft.com

4. Click "Security & Privacy" on the menu bar

5. There is an "Apps & Services" section there. Click the "Manage permissions" link in this section.

6. You'll see a list of connected apps, you can click Edit to view/remove their access to your account
