    As per Google’s announcement, Google Maps need an API Key to load on a website. See updates here

    Some of our themes are using Maps integrated in the theme itself, for this new change we are adding a new section at Theme Options i.e. “Map API”. Where you need to enter your API key to keep using the Maps without interruptions. Page Builder map widget will ask to enter the API key within the widget.
