When compared to the free version of OMGF, OMGF Pro includes various sophisticated capabilities that allow you to optimise the Google Fonts installation on your WordPress site.
Increase GDPR/DSVGO Compliance
If you load fonts straight from Google’s servers, they log all of your visitors’ IP addresses.
On January 20th, 2022, a German court found that installing Google Fonts from their server violates GDPR (DSVGO) since it exposes unneeded personal data to a US-based corporation.
To continue utilising Google Fonts, you must host them locally. There is no other option.
Thankfully, OMGF Pro does exactly that. 🙂
OMGF Pro adds advanced detection schemes to the free version of OMGF:
Reduce Fonts Bloat
Beyond locally hosting Google Fonts, OMGF Pro includes solutions to reduce bloat caused by other plugins and themes:
- You can easily unload font styles (for example, italics) and/or font weights (for example, bold) that you don’t use.
- Define which subsets of fonts should be loaded for all fonts in your WordPress settings. For the most popular fonts, this can cut the size of your Google Fonts stylesheets by 90%!
