Authorized Applications

Authorized applications are software programs that a user or system administrator has granted permission to access specific resources, functionalities, or data. This often involves a process where the user explicitly agrees to give the application certain permissions, such as accessing personal information or interacting with other software. Authorization is crucial for security and privacy, ensuring that only trusted and necessary applications can access sensitive data or perform critical operations. In the context of web services and APIs, this often involves protocols like OAuth, where applications are given limited access to user data as authorized by the user.
