Out of nowhere my app was briefly removed from Google Play with the reason Violation of Device and Network Abuse policy
Since it seems that I solved the situation rapidly I thought would be good to let a trace in case someone face the same problem some day.
I googled the topic and it seems that it’s often linked with Youtube videos and background mode. In my app there aren’t any video but well don’t ask. So finally I landed on the following topic https://stackoverflow.com/a/39610794/5404186 and noticed that I didn’t used the option
/** (Android Only) Set to yes to make InAppBrowser WebView to pause/resume with the app to stop background audio (this may be required to avoid Google Play issues) */ shouldPauseOnSuspend?: 'yes' | 'no';
this.inAppBrowser.create('https://somewhere.com', '_blank', 'location=no,shouldPauseOnSuspend=yes');
- Since the 1. November is soonish there, I upgraded my targetSdkVersion from 23 to 26
Built a new version of my app, submitted, waited quite a bit and finally app was back in store
