SDK's I didn't installed in the app appear on Google

SDK Version: 35
Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): Android/All

When submitting the app to Google Play Store, it says I have Facebook SDK and AdMob SDK but I’m not using neither. Is this and Expo thing?


Here is a list of the packages I’m using:

Hey @intutor,

Yes, this is expected for a managed Expo binary. We bundle all the available modules per SDK which gives you the benefit of being able to use OTA updates to make use of any of said modules.

You can keep your no declaration as you are not actually making use of it said ad SDKs.


Thanks for your reply @adamjnav.
What if I want to remove Facebook and AdMob SDK without bare workflow? What can I do?

My boss is a little worried of data beeing tracked by thirdparties. Can you assure me that it doesn’t happen and its GDPR Compliant?
