Publish app permission


Hi, I am trying upload apk in google play and google require me camera permission but i don’t use camera in my app.

[google message]

You need to use a different version code for your APK or Android App Bundle because you already have one with version code 1.

Your APK or Android App Bundle is using permissions that require a privacy policy: (android.permission.CAMERA).



What cordova plugins are you using?
Some of them have functions to support the device camera and adds the permission petition.
