New Member
Hi appyet developers team,

I have uploaded an app (HSS ARABIC app created by appyet) In google play store but they removed from play store due to Device and Network Abuse policy:

Then I appealed to solve this issue

Now I got a mail from google play store team

As below.

Now what should I do next?

Having a similar issue:

During review, we found that your app violates the Device and Network Abuse policy:

  • An app distributed via Google Play may not modify, replace, or update itself using any method other than Google Play's update mechanism. Likewise, an app may not download executable code (e.g. dex, JAR, .so files) from a source other than Google Play. Please note that you are responsible for all aspects of your app; by using an SDK in your app, you are responsible for how that SDK behaves within your app.
  • Apps and app listings on Google Play must not provide any means to activate or access functionality that violate these terms, such as linking to a non-compliant APK hosted outside Google Play.
You can read through the Device and Network Abuse policy page for more details and examples of common violations.

For example, we found your app is using a non-compliant version of Downloader SDK (APK version 23) which contains code to download or install applications from unknown sources outside of Google Play.

Please update your app to fix this issue by:

  • Removing the Downloader SDK or contacting the SDK provider for the latest compliant version.
  • Removing any unrequired use of the permission android.permission.REQUEST_INSTALL_PACKAGES if your app is requesting this permission

Any idea on how to solve this? I tried uploading a new version but it got rejected as well.
