Choose your Google Play account verification deadline now to reserve your preferred slot.
Earlier this year, we announced new verification requirements for anyone creating new Play Console developer accounts - to boost trust and transparency on Google Play. Today, we're sharing that all developers with existing accounts will be required to complete these account verifications, to comply with the updated Play Console requirements policy.
What you'll need to verify
To learn more about the account verifications that you'll need to complete in 2024, visit the Help Center.
Choose your verification deadline now
We know that developers of different types and sizes have different priorities and timelines. We also know that it will take some developers longer to verify than others. Because of this, we're allowing developers to choose their own deadline by which to complete account verification.
You can choose your preferred deadline in Play Console from today. Deadlines are available on a first come, first served basis, so choose your deadline early to guarantee a timeframe that works for you. If you don't choose a deadline before February 29, 2024, we'll assign a deadline for you automatically.
