How to Remove Google Forms Add-ons

Last week my Android notified me that I had 22 apps that I hadn't used in the last 30 days. I took that as a good reminder to do an audit of all the things connected to my Google account and disable or uninstall the apps, extensions, and add-ons that I no longer use. That process included removing some Google Forms add-ons as well as some Google Slides add-ons. 

If it has been a while since you last did an audit of the add-ons connected to your Google Workspace products, now's a good time to do that. When you find something that you no longer need, remove it. This short video shows you how to remove add-ons from Google Forms. The process is almost identical for Google Docs, Slides, and Sheets.

On a related note, if you have Chrome extensions installed that you no longer need, watch this video to learn how to remove them.

Applications for Education
Doing an audit of the third-party tools connected to your Google account is a good digital citizenship habit to teach to students. Guide them through the process and explain to them that the fewer third-party services you have connected to your account, the fewer opportunities there are for your account to be compromised.
