Google Maps are not working
We highly recommend securing your API key to prevent others from using your quota. The downfall is that restrictions can cause the maps to fail. There is also the chance that the required service is disabled or returns an error.
Without the proper keys and restrictions, you’ll see the following error:
Oops! Something went wrong.
