Let’s learn how to fix this error.

How to fix lintVitalRelease:

To fix the app: lintVitalRelease error, we can disable lint check for release build. To do that, we have to add the below configuration in build.gradle file:

	lintOptions { 
	    checkReleaseBuilds false

Make sure to add it to the android block.

Find the cause of this error:

The above option will disable the lint checking in release builds. This will work for the build and the build will be generated. But, this is not the way to fix this error. This error can be caused by different reasons. The most common reason is missing string tags. You need to check the string.xml file to verify if any string translation was missed.
