So I'm a developer, and I'm testing App access to OneDrive in a Windows Phone 10 emulator.

The thing is that once I logged in the first time to OneDrive and gave the app permission, I can't find where to revoke this access to force the app to show the login screen again. It keeps getting the cached authorization token and skipping the login process. And I still need to debug this process a lot.



You can't do this from the phone itself, but you can revoke access to your MS account online. To do so, log in at https://account.microsoft.com and select "Privacy" from the menu. Scroll down, and under "Apps and services" click on "Apps and services that can access your data". Alternatively, use this direct link. There you'll see a list of all apps and services that have access to your Microsoft account. Click on the name of your app and then "Remove these permissions".

Note that this will remove all permissions that app has to your MS account, not just to OneDrive. There doesn't seem to be a way to selectively revoke permissions like you can on your phone.

    "Security & Privacy" is no longer an option. I could only find it via the direct link listed.

    @PeterX I've updated the answer, to reflect the new layout of the MS account pages.

You can edit the app permissions you've given in your Microsoft account.
