Take a look at this blog post on determining and filtering by the identity of the current user.  It does a good job of explaining what you will need to do.

Are you using a SP List as your data source?  There should be a system-generated column called Created By which will have the identity of the person who created the item.  You should be able to filter on that column with something like:

Set(CurrentUser, User().Email);
Filter(<YourListName>,'Created By'.Email = CurrentUser;

Yes this worked
But now I have to give each user read access to the site before they could see details for themselves, meaning they can enter the site and things on the site,
But I don't want that, I want them to only see their item through the app.
