Nowadays Git is included in every project we created on android studio so there must be some files or directories which we don’t want to share on a remote repository and prefer to keep safe on our local machine in that case .gitignore file comes to the rescue.
.gitignore file tells VCS, the files/directory path mentioned in the .gitignore file, don’t need to upload to the remote repository so on the safe side files ignored while pushing code to the remote repository.
I am sharing already made template for android so you can just copy and paste it to save time and search for ignoring less important and sensitive files to remote repository
