I’ve received a Google Play Support email telling me that one of my apps has been removed from Google Play.
This happened because my app is using the Android Advertising ID.
The Android Advertising ID is a user-specific, unique, resettable ID for advertising, provided by Google Play services. It gives users better control and provides developers with a simple, standard system to continue to monetize your apps. It is an anonymous identifier for advertising purposes and enables users to reset their identifier or opt out of interest-based ads within Google Play apps.
If you just received this message for one of your apps, DON’T PANIC, I solved this problem very easily for my apps and here’s how I did it.
- Your own website. If you already have a website I’ll recommend this option, just create a new page where you can host the HTML file or the text and you’re all set.
3. Set the URL in your Google Play Console
5. Publish your new .apk
Finally, package and ship your new apk and after a few days, your app should be published again.
