Starbucks and McDonald’s Announce Porn Blocks On Their Wi-Fi Networks

An anonymous reader quotes a report from CNN Money: Anti-pornography groups have succeeded in their efforts to get Starbucks and McDonald’s to block porn on the chains’ Wi-Fi networks…”We had not heard from our customers that this was an issue, but we saw an opportunity that is consistent with our goal of providing an enjoyable experience for families,” McDonald’s said in a statement… Starbucks said Friday it’s will do so the same thing at its company-owned stores around the globe as well. “Once we determine that our customers can access our free Wi-Fi in a way that also doesn’t involuntarily block unintended content, we will implement this in our stores,” said a Starbucks spokesperson. “In the meantime, we reserve the right to stop any behavior that interferes with our customer experience, including what is accessed on our free Wi-Fi…”

Meanwhile, this week, the Republican Party officially added the “public health crisis” of porn to its official platform.
