    I’ve had notification from Google for each website I operate that uses Porto HTML template: –

    Hello Google Maps Platform Customer,

    We’re writing to let you know that a security issue may be affecting websites using specific third-party libraries (including polyfill.io).

    What happened

    We have become aware of a security issue that may be affecting websites using specific third-party libraries (including polyfill.io). This issue can sometimes redirect visitors away from the intended website without website owner knowledge or permission, or potentially cause other malicious behavior. Many of the Maps JavaScript API samples in the Developer Documentation previously included a polyfill.io script declaration. We have removed this from those samples. If you have used the Maps JavaScript API samples that contain this declaration, we recommend removing the declaration.

    I did a search on these sites and it seems (please confirm) that Porto has never linked to any files on polyfill.io – so I’m not sure what’s triggering these warnings? Are they safe to ignore?

    Hi, thanks for the message.

    You can ignore that message, we use just the standard API commands (not polyfill), so there will be no issue related to that.

    Kind Regards.
