    Issue: Violation of the Permissions policy

    You may only request permissions that are necessary to implement critical features or services currently available in your app. You may not use permissions that give access to user or device data for undisclosed, unimplemented, or disallowed features or purposes. SMS and Call Log Permissions are subject to additional restrictions; in order to use these permissions, you must first receive approval from Google Play.

    Next steps

    Please read through the Permissions policy and the Play Console Help Center article (which describes intended uses, exceptions, invalid uses, and alternative options for use of Call Log or SMS permissions) to determine which of the following options applies to your app:

    Option 1) If your app does not require access to Call Log or SMS permissions:

    Remove the specified permissions from your app's manifest, or migrate to an alternative implementation, then publish the updated version of your app using the standard release process.
    Option 2) If your app's use case is not eligible but you require additional time to make the necessary changes to your app:

    You may request an extension by releasing a new version of your APK with a higher version code. You'll be required to complete a Permissions Declaration as a step in the release process. Select the option "No, this release does not meet the SMS and Call Log permissions policy," and fill out the remainder of the form's required fields. You will have until March 9, 2019 to make the necessary changes to your app.
    Option 3) If your app is a default handler, or you believe your app qualifies for an exception:

    Release a new version of your APK with a higher version code. You'll be required to complete a Permissions Declaration as a step in the release process. Select the appropriate use case for your app and fill out the remainder of the form's required fields.
    For more information, please visit our blog which provides information about what to do after an app has been removed. You can also find detailed steps for completing the Permissions Declaration and preparing and rolling out your release in this Play Console Help Center article.

    Thanks for your continued support of Google Play.

    Regards,

    The Google Play Team
