CNS NEWS: Porn-Free Zone- McDonald's Adopts 'Friendly Wi-Fi' to Protect Patrons from Smut
McDonald's has recently started filtering the free Wi-Fi the company provides at most of its U.S. locations to protect patrons from pornography, sexual predation and cyberbullying.
"McDonald's is committed to providing a safe environment for our customers, and we are pleased to share that Wi-Fi filtering has been activated in the majority of McDonald's nearly 14,000 restaurants nationwide," McDonald's global communications representative Terri Hickey said in an email to CNSNews.com.
The fast-food restaurant chain made the move in response to a 2014 campaign by Enough Is Enough® (EIE), a non-partisan, non-profit organization founded in 1994 that is committed to Internet safety for children and families.
