First time app help :)

Hello fellow Android developers,

I am hoping someone can help me. I have built an App that I am planning to launch in he Google play store. As I am sure you will guess from my question this is my first App! I have done everything correctly so far and I have my merchant account setup and from a google perspective I am ready to go. I have a question though.

Some background first:

1) I am running Juno version 4.2.1 on Mac version 10.9.4
2) The App that has been built seems runs fine on test Android devices that are connected to my dev Mac
3) I have run the App on other test devices and it is running fine as well
4) I should say that the App itself is a very simple tool with a limited UI and limited user interaction


When we are building the APK within Juno we are asked to set a master password. Can you please tell me what this password is for, how important it is and does it have to be extremely strong. Will we be the only people with the password or do we have to share with google.
