Please Resolve My App

Your app includes non-compliant SDK version
Your app com.wGoBrowser_15653871 version code 1556347171 contains an SDK com.my.target:mytarget-sdk – or has a library dependency on this SDK – which automatically collects device location without verification of user consent. In cases where users may not reasonably expect that their personal and sensitive user data will be required to provide or improve the policy-compliant features or functionality within your app, you must provide an in-app disclosure of your data access, collection, use and sharing. As a result, because this SDK enables collection without adequately checking for consent, using this SDK version can result in your app violating the disclosure and consent and/or approved purpose requirements of Google Play’s User data and Permissions and APIs that access sensitive information policies.
Review your app behaviour to ensure compliance with these policies by 7 December 2022 midnight (UTC). If in violation, your app may be subject to additional enforcement at any time, including removal from the Play Store and new app submissions being blocked from release.
IMPORTANT: TAKE ACTION NOW TO REDUCE RISK OF VIOLATIONS
Verify that your app accesses, collects, uses and shares (including with SDKs) device location only for approved purposes and in compliance with the applicable prominent disclosure and consent requirements of the above-mentioned policies. Do not enable SDK data collection if it violates these requirements.
Even if the SDK collects device location to serve policy compliant ads, the app must have a primary user-facing feature that utilises device location, which may never be acquired for the sole purpose of serving ads.
If your app meets the above-mentioned policy requirements, move to an alternative SDK or version which includes the appropriate technical mechanism or an alternative SDK to ensure that end-user consent information collected by apps is honoured.
Please consult the SDK provider for further information. Google is unable to endorse or recommend any third-party software.
Here are details on how to resubmit an updated app for review.If you do not deactivate the at-risk APK, all your live APKs may be removed due to this APK.
Also, visit Google Play SDK Index for more information regarding registered SDKs, their data collection and sharing practices and sensitive permissions used.
