"For development purposes only" error in Google Maps
"For development purposes only" error in Google Maps

If your map is not loading and you see the "For development purposes only" message, here's how to fix.

Updated over a week ago

If you see a "For development purposes only" text over your map and it's not loading correctly, it means there's an issue with your Google Maps API key.

Most of the time it's related to the Google Cloud Billing not enabled.


Go to your Google Cloud Billing settings and make sure you have billing enabled. You may need to select your current project at the top left.

Google requires your account to have billing enabled if your Google Cloud free trial has ended or if you've gone beyond its free monthly tier.
