Our 2 apps were removed from sale in the Play Store today due to a permission violation. Has anyone faced the same problem yet?
Note: Our app code doesn't contain the SMS or Call Log permission.
Hi Developers at XXX LTD,
After review, [App Name], net.xxx.xxx, has been removed from Google Play due to a policy violation. This app won’t be available to users until you provide us with more information through the Play Console.
Issue: Violation of the Permissions policy
You may only request permissions that are necessary to implement critical features or services currently available in your app. You may not use permissions that give access to user or device data for undisclosed, unimplemented, or disallowed features or purposes. SMS and Call Log Permissions are subject to additional restrictions; in order to use these permissions, you must first receive approval from Google Play.
