How To Fix Xapk File Validation Failed Error In Android?

xapk file validation is a common issue for people who are downloading pirated games.A lot of people are searching for Xapk File Validation error on Google.That’s why I  have written this article.Xapk error is same as-“you may not have purchased this app error” in android games.

Most of the users face this error when installing the game along with data files. Probably you have downloaded a paid android application or game for free from a pirated website. I recommend you to purchase android games from Google Play Store directly if this error persists.

xapk file validationBecause if you download the game from anywhere else there is a chance to infect your android device with Malware!  This error occurs if you did not place data folder properly in the desired place. There are two types of data files placements for the Android games.

  • Android/obb : If particular game’s data is to be placed in obb folder then you can not download data files directly from the game because this method needs to check license verification from Google play.
  • Android/data: If there is a game where its files are to be placed in Android/data/ then that means you can download data files directly from the game.
