Hi,

My Apps Audience are for children under 13 (5 and under, 6-8, 9-12).

As per google policy, Apps Designed for family is forbidden to use location permission request.

Then I'm doing a little test:

I create a new empty project than installing PlayMaker Plugin,
then I upload to PlayStore Alpha Release to test it.


The Result: I got Error about  "The target age group for your app is: 5 and under, 6-8, 9-12"



I have a Suggestion, PlayMaker should have a little config, similar what Unity have like below:



What permission to Remove ?

it's android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION

For now, what components in PlayMaker that i can block/comment the code to prevent it from requesting location permission ?

any idea?

hi.
Try to remove the scripts that use location.



Right click on these actions and click find script or select script.
this will show you where they are in the project window.
its save to remove them, just make yourself a reminder if you would update Playmaker as then they would be back again.

do you have 3rd party asset like for example ultimate mobile?
double check these as well

Hi,

 yes, this is a good point, I always get caught by these when publishing on mobiles... I pinged Alex on this, maybe we could make a set of toggle buttons to turn off location based actions and camera usage actions as well.

Bye,
