    uploaded client app after removing sms permission from the app.

    After uploading console still shows warning saying this app has sms or call log permissions and it might be removed due to violation.

    so why is this?

    when you upload apk to console it shows the apk info like localisations and permissions and the sms/call log permission is not shown there.

    Is it possible that the sms permision or other not alllowed one is being set in the code at runtime?

    the only other thing is the read phone state permission is set in GMS setting.

    Any ideas?

    Do any of the googleplayservices or iap ones set permission in their code?

    I like how no one replies and i tend to post the answer myself or try to...

    From what ive read and seen, even if the production apk is compliant, if you had beta or alpha versions that request sensitive permissions then it can still be a policy violation. Doesnt make sense, unless its open beta testing.
