Unauthorized Use or Imitation of System Functionality

Unauthorized Use or Imitation of System Functionality

We don’t allow apps or ads that mimic or interfere with system functionality, such as notifications or warnings. System level notifications may only be used for an app’s integral features, such as an airline app that notifies users of special deals, or a game that notifies users of in-game promotions.

Examples of common violations
  • Apps or ads that are delivered through a system notification or alert:
    ① The system notification shown in this app is being used to serve an ad.

For additional examples involving ads, please refer to the Ads policy.
