CNN Money: Starbucks and McDonald's move to block porn from their Wi-Fi networks
Anti-pornography groups have succeeded in their efforts to get Starbucks and McDonald's to block porn on the chains' Wi-Fi networks.
Earlier this year McDonald's (MCD) responded by putting filters in place at most of its U.S. restaurants, a change that was disclosed this week. The company had already had the filtering in place at its U.K. restaurants.
"McDonald's is committed to providing a safe environment for our customers," he said. "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."
The anti-porn groups Enough is Enough and the National Center on Sexual Exploitation then appealed to Starbucks to follow McDonald's lead. In response to questions from CNNMoney, Starbucks (SBUX) said Friday it's will do so the same thing at its company-owned stores around the globe as well.
