A few days ago I entered Google Play Console and saw that there is a warning:
We’ve detected that your app contains the
requestLegacyExternalStorage flag in the manifest file of 1 or more of your app bundles or APKs.
- SDK Version is 38 (Managed Workflow).
- Platform is Android
I searched for requestLegacyExternalStorage or other permissions regarding file permissions and couldn’t find anything about that. Is there a way to make this warning disappear?
I used APKTOOL to investigate the APK and got the AndroidManifest.xml file and saw this line:
<application android:allowBackup="true" android:appComponentFactory="androidx.core.app.CoreComponentFactory" android:icon="@mipmap/ic_launcher" android:label="@string/app_name" android:largeHeap="true" android:name="host.exp.exponent.MainApplication" android:requestLegacyExternalStorage="true" android:usesCleartextTraffic="true">
I saw a topic about that but couldn’t find a solution there either. Could you help me?
