    Cloud developer console is a place for developers to create applications. when you create a new application you must decide which APIs will be used by that application.

    Unless you are the developer of the third party application setting this will not have any effect on what applications created by other developers can do with your account. If you dont want them accessing your drive account then dont install any third party applications that request permission to access your drive account.
