Remove Google Fonts References


Plugin homepage | Plugin author

This plugin stops loading of Open Sans and other fonts used by WordPress and other themes (such as Twenty Twelve, Twenty Thirteen, Twenty Fourteen etc.) from Google Fonts.

Reasons for not using Google Fonts might be privacy and security, local development or production, blocking of Google’s servers, characters not supported by font, performance.

Remove Google Fonts References is a very lightweight, it has no settings, just activate it and it works immediately.

From version 2.0, CSS files detecting has been added to this plugin to avoid google fonts loading inside CSS files. Although it helps stop loading google fonts more thoroughly, it will causes more resource consumption at first runing as well, may cause some minor problems(Like space or the host is not unobstructed access to extranet resources will lead to the first response time too long). If you don’t need CSS files detecting feature, Remove Google Fonts References Version 1.2 only contains the simple removal of the full-text search function, maybe a better choice for you.


  1. Upload remove-google-fonts-references folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress background.

The Plugin does not get updated anymore, but still works as it should be. Really really good Plugin. There is nothing else like this!

Unlike the Disable Google Fonts plugin, this one worked almost perfectly for me. (I'm using the econature theme from cmsmasters.) The result was that my fonts still look the same as before and the links to no longer appear in my html code. However, I noticed that this link remained in my html: <link rel='dns-prefetch' href='//' /> To get rid of that, I just added this to my functions.php file: /* * Remove these lines from our html: * <link rel='dns-prefetch' href='//' /> * <link rel='dns-prefetch' href='//' /> */ remove_action( 'wp_head', 'wp_resource_hints', 2 ); NB - This also removed this code from my html: <link rel='dns-prefetch' href='//' />

Hot diggity damn this plugin works!! I have spent - scratch that - WASTED so many hours trying to locate the source of and remove the google fonts it's sickening. I've tried every thing I could find to do it manually . . . and none of them worked. I've lost count of how many plugins I've tried . . . and none of them worked. Then, quite by accident, I finally came across your plugin . . . and dammit it worked INSTANTLY!! I'd hug and kiss you if I could! 🙂 Thank you so much for a solution that actually works!! LL
