Credly Settings- Applications

Updated 06/06/2023

Within the Applications tab, you can manage your social networks, sites, and applications you’ve authorized access to your Credly account. Access includes name, photo, bio, primary email address, public badges, and pending badges issued by this organization.



Social networks allows you to manage your connected third-party social apps that allows you to share earned badges outside of Credly.



To share or add a badge to your LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter profiles, these sites requires an authorization process that is required and standard for all third-party programs creating a connection between the two accounts.


LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter predetermines this message based on the authorization scope required to share your badge. Credly will not post to LinkedIn, Facebook, or Twitter without your initiation or permission. Credly will only add badges to your profile or post them to your newsfeed upon your request.


While we will never modify , delete posts, comments and reactions on your behalf,  this level of access is required in order to provide the  sharing services we offer, like posting badges to the news feeds from your Credly account and adding your badges to your profile.
