The short version:
Make sure your Firefox and Edge browsers are on the latest release.
Sites can gather sensitive data if a prior site served up video or audio files.

Far too often people do NOT ask me, or my colleagues in the industry, whom they should use as a web hosting company. Most business owners figure they are smart enough to at least select a host — especially when it comes to hosting a WordPress site.
And they Google it.
From the instant they made that decision they are screwed. Web hosting is an insanely profitable business and as such it has attracted tech titans; companies with a couple zeros in the “millions column” on their revenue sheets. They earn millions every month in hosting fees and pay a LOT of money to be the “first recommended” by Google or others.
Google dropped a bombshell on most maps users, including many of the people using the Store Locator Plus WordPress plugin — they now require ALL SITES to register for an API key. The bigger part of the announcement was that ALL registered API keys must now be attached to a Google Billing Account. That’s right, Google now wants your credit card information on file and ready-to-bill at a moments notice if you garner any traffic on your displayed maps.
You will see a lot of map plugins and services changing over the coming months because of this. The WordPress plugin version of Store Locator Plus is one of them. Thankfully those clients that opted to use the fully-managed My Store Locator Plus service won’t need to deal with Google — but there will be “in the background” changes made to that service as well.
