    this is a great plugin but unfortunately it always loads a font from a google server. For me, this is a user privacy nightmare.

    How can I completely disable the loading of this font?

    Thanks a lot.

    Please find a replacement simple-share-buttons-adder.php file here - http://ge.tt/api/1/files/9YidQRf/0/blob?download

    This file simply has the fonts part commented out.

    If you find I've released an update without providing you with another alternative please let me know.

    Could you please let me know why you've found privacy to be an issue with Google Fonts?

    Thanks a lot man! That was super quick!

    Google can see ever hit on their servers and user do not have a chance to opt out of this because it happens on initial page load already. This is why I only serve local fonts. :-)

    No probs!

    I'll try and find a way to not call upon the fonts unless one of the two options have been selected :)

    Me again!

    I just wanted to let you know that I'm doing some final tests on version 2.5, which I'm hoping to launch shortly.

    This release will now only load Google fonts if they have been requested. Thanks for creating the topic and giving the opportunity to improve the plugin.

    You shan't need a personalised file for this update :)
