Public Ticket #1637961
Google Fonts Elimination


  • Nicole Woithon started the conversation

    Hi, in Germany we are not allowed due to GDPR to use Google fonts anymore. I installed Webcraftic Clearfy to disable Google Fonts used by the theme, which works fine but there is still one Google Font showing up, that is not even used by the theme. I am not sure how to fix it. Or is there a better chance to disable all Google fonts with some php coding. Help would be highly appreciated. Kind regards from Germany,

    This is a part of the source code which causes the trouble.

    i have checked your website and have noticed that it is still usin google fonts, Like Open Sans for body.

    Are you sure that your plugin is working fine?

    you can try to disable all google font via Appearance > Customizer by selecting the white space from the dropdown where you select the google font.

    Let me know!


    P.S. Google Fonts are for the moment in a gray area of GDPR so there is nothing telling that Google fonts are or are not compliant with GDPR. In my opinion it is ridiculous!
