Invalidate Token


Invalidate a publisher access token to immediately unlink a Facebook or Twitter account from Marin Social.

Simply visit the Account Manager, find the account you'd like to unlink, and invalidate the access token. Marin Social will no longer be able to import publisher data or make changes using the publisher account.

Note: Exercise caution, as the access token will be invalidated for all agencies to which the publisher account is linked.

Use Cases

Consider invalidating a publisher access token if:

  • The user of a publisher account is leaving your company or changing roles.
  • You want to stop activity in Marin Social on a given publisher account.
