    If you’re a WebViewGold user for Android and have come across a warning in the Google Play Store regarding deeplinking not being configured correctly, don’t worry. This warning is generally not a problem, especially if you do not plan to use deeplinking features within your web-to-app conversion. However, if you prefer to hide this warning to ensure a cleaner listing in the Play Store, this article will guide you through the process.

    Deeplinking allows your app to open links directly within the app itself rather than opening in a web browser. It’s a useful feature for enhancing user experience by creating a seamless transition between web and app content. However, not all apps require this functionality. The Play Store warning is simply an alert to inform you that deeplinking might not be configured correctly in your app’s setup. If deeplinking is not a feature you intend to use, this warning can be safely ignored.

    For those who wish to remove this warning, the solution involves a small adjustment in your app’s “AndroidManifest.xml” file. You will need to remove a specific block of code related to deeplinking. Here’s how:


    1. Open Your Project in Android Studio:
    – Launch Android Studio and open your WebViewGold project.

    2. Locate the “AndroidManifest.xml” File:
    – In the Project view, navigate to “app > src > main” and open the “AndroidManifest.xml” file.

    3. Remove the Deeplinking Intent Filter:
    – Look for the following intent filter block within the file:

    <action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW" />
    <category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
    <category android:name="android.intent.category.BROWSABLE" />
    <!-- Accepts URIs that begin with "” -->
    android:scheme="https" />

    – Carefully remove this entire block. Ensure you do not delete any other parts of the “AndroidManifest.xml” file that are necessary for your app’s functionality.

    4. Save and Rebuild Your App:
    – After removing the intent filter, save the changes to the “AndroidManifest.xml” file.
    – Rebuild your project in Android Studio to apply the changes.

    5. Re-upload Your App to the Play Store:
    – Once you’ve successfully rebuilt your app without the deeplinking intent filter, you’ll need to re-upload the updated APK or App Bundle to the Google Play Console.
    – Follow the standard process for uploading a new version of your app.


    Removing the deeplinking configuration from your app is a straightforward process that can help you avoid unnecessary warnings in the Play Store. Remember, this step is only necessary if you do not wish to utilize deeplinking capabilities in your app and prefer not to have the warning displayed. Always ensure you’re making informed changes to your app’s configuration to maintain its functionality and user experience.
