Read Phone State ( construct 3 unsigned release problem)

  • Dear All,

    I have made a simple mobile game using construct 3 latest build R89. I then made an unsigned release build and signed it with my key. when i upload it on google play console. i am getting this message - "your game version 100000 requires read_phone_state permission so you have to include a privacy policy. my game is very simple and i dont intend to read any phone data so i make an android studio build and opened it up, there in the android manifest file I did not see any user permission stating read_phone_state.

    Can anyone please help. I don't know what to do

  • Don't make unsigned release build.

    Either have it signed (https://www.construct.net/tutorials/building-android-apps-apks-in-construct-3-19) or make a debug APK.

    Even for simple application, there is minimal permission you will have to go through.

    Perhaps Nepeo can provide a bit more insight there.

    Are you integrating ads? If so, the admob API is probably using the state of the phone (connectivity to serve ads etc.) - it was an admob bug that was supposedly fixed.

    I finally gave up and added a privacy policy for my very simple game <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_sad.gif" alt=":(" title="Sad" />

  • I finally gave up and added a privacy policy for my very simple game

    How did you do that, website? Thanks

    Hi. I just created a privacy policy by going to" app-privacy-policy-generator (dot)firebaseapp(dot)com "

    and under "information you collect" i just say user-permission and in the right hand side choose admob. Then I created a blogger blog - tulendragupta(dot)blogspot(dot)in and paste it there and then copy the link and add it in the google play console.

    Hope that helps.

    Nice - thanks so much.

  • Yeah but, I don't get this...

    I have the same problem and I published 2 games already without any troubles.

    Is this something new by google, or is there some bug in construct itself?

    Hi Manny, I too have published some app without this problem. I think this has to do something with the google admob because i tried downgrading my construct but end up with the same problem. so if figured that it must be the problem with admob. Construct 3 team should file a bug report
