Using mock location provider in production

Using mock location provider in production

Using a mock location provider (by requiring the permission android.permission.ACCESS_MOCK_LOCATION) should only be done in debug builds (or from tests). In Gradle projects, that means you should only request this permission in a test or debug source set specific manifest file.

To fix this, create a new manifest file in the debug folder and move the <uses-permission> element there. A typical path to a debug manifest override file in a Gradle project is src/debug/AndroidManifest.xml.
