Starbucks coffee shop in 2019 will introduce new methods of filtering content that customers view through public Wi-Fi in the establishments of the network. This representative of the network told Business Insider, without revealing details.

The company told The Verge that watching porn was banned in restaurants of the chain before, but this time Starbucks “found a solution to prevent viewing similar content.”

The decision was made by the network after many years of “pressure” from the organization “Enough is Enough”, which advocates Internet security. The organization launched a petition calling for Starbucks to filter content; more than 26 thousand people signed it.

Earlier this week, the head of «Enough is Enough» Donna Rice Hughes accusedStarbucks of violating the same promises given in 2016.

In 2016, under pressure from the same organization, McDonald’s also introduced content filtering tools. In the same year, free Wi-Fi stations were turned off in the New York subway because people used them to watch porn.

Indian residents also used free internet access points at train stations provided by Google and its local partner RailTel, primarily for watching porn. In 2015, hackers broke into Wi-Fi in the Moscow metro and posted porn.
