One week ago Drugfinder appplication was removed from playstore due to violation of Google play policy (Not specified). I was advised to check on the application’s code then resubmit the app using a different package name, This was a not fair because google is removing applications from playstore without giving a detailed reason. Look at this email from google:

Hi Developers at Titus Kipruto,

After review, Drugfinder Kenya, com.pharm.batson, has been suspended and removed from Google Play as a policy strike because it violates the malicious behavior policy.

Next Steps

  1. Read through the Malicious Behavior policy for more details and examples of policy violations.
  2. Make sure your app is compliant with all policies listed in the Developer Program Policies. Remember additional enforcement could occur if there are further policy issues with your apps.
  3. If it’s possible to bring your app into compliance, you can sign in to your Play Console and submit the policy compliant app using a new package name and a new app name.

Additional suspensions of any nature may result in the termination of your developer account, and investigation and possible termination of related Google accounts. If your account is terminated, payments will cease and Google may recover the proceeds of any past sales and/or the cost of any associated fees (such as chargebacks and transaction fees) from you.

If you’ve reviewed the policy and feel this suspension may have been in error, please reach out to our policy support team. One of my colleagues will get back to you within 2 business days.
