26bIf:

You've declared your application does not target children under 13. Google will review your store listing to make sure that it doesn't unintentionally appeal to children under 13.

The following question asks if you think your store listing could unintentionally appeal to children. Learn more

If you answer 'Yes', the 'Not designed for children' label will be shown next to your app on Google Play.

If you answer 'No', and Google disagrees with your answer, you won't be able to update your app.

To resolve this, you will need to either:

  • Answer 'Yes' to this question, and consent to the 'Not designed for children' label being shown next to your app
  • Change your store listing so that it doesn't appeal to children. This may include your app description, icon, and screenshots.
  • Change the target age group of your app to include children, and comply with the Families policy

Otherwise:

Policy requirements summary

Depending on the countries where your app is available, some or all of the users you're targeting may be considered children. You must comply with the Families policy whenever your app is being used by a child.

This includes:

  • Making sure that any content in your app that could be seen by children is appropriate for them
  • Only displaying ads that are appropriate for children, and are from Google Play certified ad networks
  • Making sure your app (including all APIs, SDKs, and ads) complies with all applicable laws and regulations relating to children, such as the US Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

You can either make your entire app compliant, or implement a neutral age screen and comply with the policy when the user is a child.

You're declaring that your target age group includes children under 13


If your app serves ads to children that aren't from Google Play certified ad networks, or you collect personally-identifiable information from children, your app may be removed from Google Play
