Are you an Android developer? Beware of a phishing email sent by hackers to steal developers’ console passwords.
The email circulating comes from a
“gooogle.com.de” address (with an extra “O”).
UPDATE: Google issues official e-mail to developers warning them of this phishing attack.
We are aware that some Google Play developers have received policy warnings from a fake Google account. The subject lines of the fraudulent emails include variations of “3-Day Notification of Google Play Developer Term Violation.” If you received an email with this subject line, please mark it as phishing and proceed to delete it without clicking on any links contained within it.

If you use Gmail, please report all phishing attempts by following these instructions: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/75061.
As a general reminder, you should only enter your Google account password on the official Google sign-in page: https://accounts.google.com/. Also note that the official URL for the Google Play Developer Console is https://play.google.com/apps/publish/.
