When site owners go to install an app, they need to explicitly allow the app access to specific types of data, based on the scopes defined in the app’s manifest. ​

Connect dialog

When they click Connect, the app installs and is considered connected.

You use the App Deauthorize API to “break” that connection. The site owner will see a message saying that your app is disconnected. They will not be able to use your app until it’s reconnected.

Disconnecting an app

​You will need to handle any steps required to determine when the user can reconnect the app. If you don’t, the user can simply reconnect the app the next time they go to use it.
