Issue: Missing or inaccurate target audience information
Your app will be removed from Google Play for one of the following reasons:
- You have not yet completed the Target audience and content section of the Play Console for your app; OR
- You completed the Target audience and content section but your app was previously rejected due to inaccurate target audience information.
This issue occurred due to incomplete or inaccurate information in the Target Audience section. When creating a new app or performing an app update, you should declare your app’s target age group by filling in the Target Audience and Content section.
- Complete or resubmit the Target Audience and Content section by following the steps in the Manage target audience & app content settings KB article.
