Check your app’s policy status

Your app’s policy status lets you know if, after a review, your app was found to have any compliance issues with Developer Program Policies or the Developer Distribution Agreement

Your policy status shows any active enforcement against your app, such as rejection, removal, or suspension from Google Play. It also provides any additional information that’s available, so that you can address the issues that violated Google Play policies.

Review your app’s policy status

  1. Open Play Console.
  2. Select an app.
  3. On the left menu, select Policy status.
  4. Review your policy status:
    • If you see the message "No issues found," no enforcement actions have been taken against your app, and you don’t need to do anything.
    • If your app was rejected, the last version that you successfully published is still available on Google Play. 
    • If your app was removed, it won't be available on Google Play until a compliant update is submitted.
    • If your app was suspended, it’s no longer available on Google Play. You can select Appeal to initiate an appeal against the decision.

Note: Until a policy violation has been fixed, don't republish a rejected or removed app.

Resolve policy-related issues

If your app has been rejected or removed from Google Play, you should read the information on policy-review outcomes in the Play Console Help Center which also includes information on filing appeals.
