Starbucks and McDonald's move to block porn from their Wi-Fi networks
Chris Isidore from CNNMoney reports that anti-pornography groups have succeeded in their efforts to get Starbucks and McDonald's to block porn on the chains' Wi-Fi networks. The anonymity offered by open Wi-Fi increases use of public Wi-Fi for trafficking pornographic content and the sexual solicitation of children. Parents worry that children can come across such content while at one of the restaurants with Wi-Fi, either by accident or if they are trying to access content blocked by filters the parents put on their home networks. According to Donna Rice Hughes, president of Enough is Enough, “parents need to know which family restaurants are safe from online threats”.
