Google Maps Platform to enforce API restrictions

Google Maps Platform Customers received last week an email communication from Google that starting from June 11, 2019 Google will be enforcing API key restrictions to improve security.

What do I need to know?

Please review your affected API keys and adjust their API restrictions before June 11, 2019 if you are using API keys for Google Maps Platform services. In your e-mail Google named the API’s which you need to adapt.

Why is this relevant for me?

An API key is unrestricted by default. Unrestricted keys are insecure because they can be viewed publicly, such as from within a browser, or they can be accessed on a device where the key resides. Publicly exposing your credentials can result in your account being compromised, which could lead to unexpected charges on your account. Additionally unrestricted API keys will start to return errors on these services after June, 11th.

What do I need to do?

Please review your affected API keys, and adjust their API restrictions before June 11, 2019, if you are using API keys for these services. If you need help, please contact our support@localyse.eu or your account manager.
