Android removal - SPYWARE - Your app is not compliant with the Malware policy.

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 35
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): Android

I received an email from Google Play Store today that our app is being removed due to containing spyware. This is a non-ejected Expo app. We haven’t made updates in a few months.

Sent Google Play Store support a message about it but wondering if anyone else has bumped into this while I wait to hear back from them.

Hi @elie! I haven’t seen other reports of this, but would like to keep a close eye in case this is something on our end. Keep me updated with Google’s response, hopefully they give you some more context around what specifically triggered this

If you don’t mind sharing, what’s the exact message they sent you? If you’d rather not post that here, feel free to send an email to secure@expo.io
