I uploaded my react-native app on PlayStore and I saw that my app "may request permission" to access location.

I do not use location services on application so I want it removed. Is there anyway to find out where location services are potentially used? AndroidManifest.xml does not mention any location services. How do I remove this permission?

I want the "may request access to Location" be removed from the permissions in Play Store when it is uploaded.


Try adding this to your AndroidManifest:

<uses-permission tools:node=”remove” android:name=”EnterPermissionNameHere” />

the important part is the attribute tools:node=”remove”this way it will try to remove the permission if its added from somewhere within the app. Just Make sure to replace "EnterPermissionNameHere" with the exact permission name for example "android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION"

Maybe this will fix your problem
