Your app includes non compliant SDK version

I’m publishing these apps on play store, making them with kodular and using monetization but this warning is coming in apps, how to solve it?

So what can I do now? Will apps be unpublished? Then remove monetization and use any other monetization? And what to update?

Do you know what the problem with is?
If you know, better you never ever use this platform again.

And if you don’t know, let me inform: was stealing sensitive data from devices and selling them with third party. Yes, you heard you right. They were selling personal data from all your users from long ago. As per the notice by Google, has acknowledged that they were selling those data. Therefore, Google restricted using it.

Also, as per Google, it’s your responsibility to ensure that you’re not sharing any sensitive user data with third party (i.e : Your Ad network). If you’re doing this thing repeatedly, your account and/or app could be banned permanently.

Ok, I’m unpublishing now, and republishing with the new monetization sdk installed

Which network app should I use now that will increase monetization income?

Google ad manager, admob, fb, ironsource, etc

yesterday the app was updated, I removed the components, but as I said today I went to try to send another version to update to see, and the message appears again, informing about version 38 which is the one that it has component, I want to know if there is any way to type delete or undo this version, as the latest version is already correct. Or if I just have to wait for everyone to update to the new version?

Your previous version deactivates as soon as your newer version gets live

I don’t have google adsense approval so I can’t use ad manager, and I can’t use google admob extension or any other problem.

Thanks you

My apps are not using or any ads, how can I update my apps cantains ads option and update ads free by uploading this update of play store? So that my apps are not showing any ads?

Since you’re updating an ad free version apk, you need to update following things:

  1. Update your “App Content” on play console, that this app doesn’t contain ads. May be it’s the last option in sidebar of play console.

  2. Update new apk. As soon as it gets live, the lable “contains ads” will be disappeared from Play store.
