Google says the app does not comply with its policy. I can’t find any shortcomings

I am sharing google play app for the first time. I got rejected a few times. I noticed very important issues and made their arrangements. But for a few days I am getting the same error.

I’m definitely not using <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_BACKGROUND_LOCATION" /> permission.

Manifest looks like this.

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.LOCATION_HARDWARE" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_LOCATION_EXTRA_COMMANDS" />

Google claims to me that location permission is not policy compliant. Here is the message

İ don’t know how to fix it. If you could help with this situation, I would greatly appreciate it.


Doesn’t that mean it’s the privacy policy? The following photo appears before the application asks for location permission. Google denied this. In the permission text, there is a direction on the site.

You might confuse Google’s policy with your privacy policy.

It seems that your privacy policy infomation is just shortcoming but not permissions. Review your privacy policy and revise it enough to match the location permissions.

The privacy policy is the one whose URL is specified in App content > Privacy Policy of your app on Google Play Console.


You should publish your privacy policy on the web page of the URL.
