Reader SDK and SafetyNet Attestation Api deprecation for Android

Hi team. I noticed that Reader SDK contains SafetyNet API dependency SafetyNet is getting discontinued and replaced by Play Integrity Api and so I am getting warning from play store. Just want to ask is SafetyNet deprecation going to have an impact on an app in any form?

The SafetyNet API is a part of Google Play Services, which the Reader SDK depends on. However, Square has not provided any specific information about the impact of SafetyNet’s deprecation on the Reader SDK. It’s recommended to keep your SDKs and dependencies up-to-date to ensure compatibility and security. If Square releases an update to the Reader SDK addressing this change, it would be advisable to update to that version.
