Support » Theme: Twenty Seventeen » WP should not feed Google

  • I really find it alarming that WordPress uses Google fonts in Standard themes like Twentyseventeen, especially without indication! That means that every request establishes a connection to Google and transfers data. I really do not want to expose my readers to this scenario.
    I know that it is possible to get rid of this problem but I find that it should be default to not feed such data kraken. In the meantime this is an issue relating to data privacy acts, which I do welcome in this aspect.

  • It’s not really feeding Google. It’s taking advantage of their platform to serve fonts and increase the possibility that the user has the font already cached, so the site loads faster.

    This advantage is the glass bead for the natives.

    But thank you for the link where I read that Twentynineteen does not use Google fonts anymore. Great!
