Minority News: I'm Lovin' It: Mcdonald's Makes Protecting Children and Families from Internet Pornography and Child Pornography Top Priority- Enough Is Enough® Praises Worldwide Chain for Internet Safety Leadership
WASHINGTON, July 13, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Enough Is Enough® (EIE), the nation's pioneering Internet safety organization today praised the McDonald's corporation® for their decision to filter public Wi-Fi from pornography and child pornography.
EIE launched its "National Porn Free Wi-Fi" campaign in the fall of 2014, with nearly 50,000 petitions and 75 partner organizations encouraging McDonald's and Starbucks to lead Corporate America in filtering Wi-Fi. Both companies were early adopters in the U.K., where they voluntarily filtered pornography on their public WiFi networks. McDonald's responded rapidly and positively to the initial outreach to their CEO by EIE in spring 2014, and began exploring options for WiFi filtering. To date, Starbucks has yet to respond.
