    Anyone? I have the same problem. I let Google Play handle that so I do not have my jks or any certificates. It is all kept in a "Google Play secure server", or so they say.
    What can I do? Let UDP assign and use keys as needed?

    I have the same question and would appreciate an official answer.

    If we generate a new key, like mentioned in the post above, then this will also be "another" key than the "App Signing by Google Play" key - so we could just as well let Unity handle the UDP keys, correct?

    After absolutely no response from Unity team, I decided to try it for myself.

    First I tried to "let UDP manage the private keys", which was NOT RECOMMENDED. It says it might be flagged as a dangerous app and it indeed was flagged just a few hours later.

    So the only viable option was to upload my own certificate, as I'm using App Signing by Google, I used my "upload certificate" for UDP and it worked, no warnings from Google Play Protect.
