    when I last checked my contact page I realized that Google Maps shows an error und checked my API Key in the Enfold backend. It says: “Could not connect to Google Maps with this API Key”. I have no idea why the key should not work anymore. Also tried it with a new key but without success – it’s alyways the connection issue. There is no restriction enabled.

    PHP version: 7.3.11
    MYSQL: v10.4.9-MariaDB-1:10.4.9+maria~bionic

    Enabled APIs for the project:
    Geocoding API

    Distance Matrix API

    Maps Elevation API
    Maps Embed API

    Hey Neverlands,

    Credentials did not work for me. Could you please update the credentials?

    Best regards,


    Hello Victoria,
    sorry for the inconvenience – I’ve created a new password for you.

    I double checked the Google payment methods and – in deed – the credit card was expired so I set up my actual one.
    But still the Enfold backend cannot connect with the API key.

    Thanks for the update and login details, I see that you haven’t added an API key under Enfold->Google Services. Did you remove it from there? If not then please try to add it back again to see what happens then.

    Best regards,


    Hello Rikard,

    no, I didn’t remove it. It’s Enfold’s behaviour.
    This is what I do: I enter an API key and save all changes,
    Then I hit “Check API key”.
    I get the error message: “Could not connect to Google Maps with this API Key”
    After this the key gets removed from the field.

    I save one now without hitting “Check API key”.


    Update: When I just saved the Key without hitting “Check API key” the console showed a new error message: You must enable Billing on the Google Cloud Project at Learn more at

    I didn’t know before that I had to upgrade something, I just had the billing account connected. So I followed the link and upgraded the Google Cloud project. Now it is working!
    Thank you very much for your help.
    Best regards,
