I want to disable android.permission.ACCESS_BACKGROUND_LOCATION in my Xamarin app because I dont need it anymore but when I uncheck the checkbox in the Properties tab:

And delete the permission request in the android.manifest file itself:

enter image description here

The permission request still seems to be there according to the manifest file from the archived .aab file and also according to the google play dev console. I also searched my entire solution and dident find any other references. Is there anything that causes this request or anything I forgot to delete?

    I fixed it by applying the following line of code in my android manifest file:

    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_BACKGROUND_LOCATION" tools:node="remove" />
