McDonald’s Restaurants Can Now Filter Out Pornography on their WiFi

Thank McDonald’s Here:

The National Center on Sexual Exploitation partnered with Enough is Enough on their campaign to get McDonalds and Starbucks to filter their public WiFi to prevent access to pornography.

Over 50,000 of you signed our petition for #PornFreeWifi, and while Starbucks has yet to reply, McDonald’s has heard your requests!

In the first quarter of 2016, McDonald’s began to implement its new filtered WiFi policy in its corporate-owned restaurants in the U.S. and made the same service available to their franchisees.  This policy change to offer filtered WiFi is a huge victory.

Now the majority of McDonald’s restaurants will offer safer WiFi for their patrons. McDonald’s now joins the ranks of other corporations such as Chick-fil-A and Panera Bread which are all doing their part to address the public health crisis of pornography by proactively filtering pornography on its WiFi.

Please sign the above petition and let McDonald’s know that they made the right decision.

National Center on Sexual Exploitation

Founded in 1962, National Center on Sexual Exploitation is the leading national organization opposing pornography by highlighting the links to sex trafficking, violence against women, child abuse, addiction and more. The organization changed its name from Morality In Media to the National Center on Sexual Exploitation early in 2015 to better describe the organization’s scope and mission, which is to expose the seamless connection between all forms of sexual exploitation.
