Enough is Enough Win Over Starbucks
Starbucks to finally fix its public WiFi porn problem.
14:28 03 December 2018
Anti-pornography group, Enough is Enough, is pressuring Starbucks to take action to stop people from viewing explicit imagery over its public WiFi hotspots inside its store.
A CitizenGo petition, which gathered over 26,000 signatures, said: "Apparently, Starbucks cares more about providing paper straws to protect the environment than protecting kids and patrons on its public WiFi!
"Starbucks broke its promise to filter pornography and child sex abuse images, despite its public announcement it would voluntarily provide safe WiFi in its restaurants nationwide...an announcement more than 2 and-a-half years ago!"
A Starbucks spokesperson said that they are working on a solution that will be introduced to its US stores in 2019. However, important details, which include whether the company will enforce the solution overseas or how many people actually view pornography inside their stores, are yet to be released.
