    Yes got the same for all my apps, and they got removed until update submission.
    Looks like all apps which are built from buildbox got removed from playstore.

    Open the libs folder on android source code and remove Heyzap and Leadbolt library unless you use it :)
    @Sean Buildbox @TreySmith It would be better if you don't include these libraries in future buildbox updates as these companies are never better like they were once :)

    Hey there everyone. So yes it appears Google Play abruptly and recently started automatically removing any application with HeyZap sdk anywhere. The good news is we've already removed these libraries from both Buildbox 2.3.9 and the next BB3 update's exports. The bad news is you may need to re-upload your Google Play games.

    In the meantime you can remove the HeyZap sdk in the Libs folder of the android export and then re-compile the APK to re-submit

    You have to open the folder where you have exported the source code .Open app folder and navigate to libs.

    This isn't always a problem, but is more likely to happen for encryption of interactive network connections, especially in web browsers where the same data packet contains both user secrets (session cookies) and data controlled by the attacker (for example advertisement code and other data) where the attacker can guess the 192.168.100.1 192.168.1.1 user's secret by observing how compression rates of the data packets changes when the attacker supplied data changes.

    What ad network are you using, pretty sure it isn’t HeyZap since they are pretty much defunct, so you would be fine.

    Hello! My game was deleted from Google Play for the same reason. I have commercials on my Admob game. If I delete the Heyzap libraries, will there still be ads on my game?
