Remove android.permission.CAMERA from generated app
Application Type

Hi, we are generating an app that would be deployed in the Google Play Store, but upon uploading our APK, Play console warns that our app has android.permission.CAMERA permission and therefore would need a privacy policy.
We do not have a privacy policy and our app does not need to use the camera to function, is there any way to remove this permission when generating the app? Thanks in advance.

Plugins used: Common Plugin, Firebase Mobile, InAppBrowser Plugin, Silk UI Mobile

Hi @Nygel Ramos 

Check if you have any reference to the camera plugin and remove it

Our app has no references to the CameraPlugin.

Only plugins used are: Common Plugin, Firebase Mobile, InAppBrowser Plugin, Silk UI Mobile 


I created a new (blank) Android App and the apk is generated with these permissions:

The android.permission.CAMERA permission should not have been included.

At times, Upload Widget also adds the android.permission.CAMERA.

Hi Nygel, 
Have you figured out the solution for this problem? I'm facing exact problem as you
