We have an issue where our app was removed from the Google Play Store noting a violation of the Salesforce's webview spam policy. Here is the full notification we received from Google Play Support:

Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns. I appreciate your understanding and look forward to your reply.
I opened a case with Salesforce support but they notified me that the Salesforce Mobile SDK is open-source and directed me to open a question here.
We've reached out to Google Play support for additional information, but have not heard back as of yet.
We were in the process of updating the Salesforce Mobile SDK version when we received this notification/suspension. Is this something that could be caused by this being out of date? Any assistance/insight would be greatly appreciated.
