There is only one thing I would change. I wish you could limit how much information users could give. For example: require city - but prevent users from giving their full address for security reasons. I think this is really about Google though and not the plugin. The plugin just uses Google’s APIs. I just added a warning on my registration page advising users not to give their full addresses. The plugin is very useful and does just what it’s supposed to do.

As simple as installing the plugin, adding the field and API key. Perfect. Another exceptional plugin by Andrea. Thank you so much for your continued development of this plugin and BP Profile Search.
