Bad news perverts: McDonald’s free
public wi-fi will begin using filters to keep
customers from watching porn in its
restaurants. The filtering will eventually
affect all corporate-owned locations.
McDonald’s says the new policy is aimed
at creating “a safe environment.”
After two years of pressure, the world’s
biggest burger chain finally caved to
internet safety group Enough Is Enough
(EIE), which seeks to keep kids from
seeing mature content online. EIE has had
success with other fast food companies:
Subway’s footlongs are now strictly
sandwiches; Chik-fil-A chickens remain
unchoked; I’ve got nothing for Panera
Bread but you get the idea.
And in case you were wondering, a lot of
people were consuming smut at
McDonald’s. Over the years videos have
surfaced of customers and employees
watching porn both inside McDonald’s
locations and using the wifi from the
parking lot (links obviously NSFW). So
uh… hopefully the new filters will prevent
any more of those incidents from
happening.
“McDonald’s is committed to providing a
safe environment for our customers,” the
company told Gizmodo, “and we are
pleased to share that wi-fi filtering has
been activated in the majority of
McDonald’s nearly 14,000 restaurants
nationwide.”
No information has been revealed with
regard to wi-fi filters in franchised
locations. But honestly, what restaurant
owner wants customers wanking in the
dining room?
