No More Porn At Starbucks As Of Next Year

Starbucks says it has found a way to prevent customers from watching porn in its stores.  Next year, the chain plans to introduce a new tool meant to prevent customers from viewing pornography or other explicit content in it’s stores.  While watching porn is already banned at Starbucks locations, the chain does not have content blockers on its Wi-Fi service.  “To ensure the Third Place remains safe and welcoming to all, we have identified a solution to prevent this content from being viewed within our stores and we will begin introducing it to our locations in 2019,” a Starbucks representative told Business Insider in an email yesterday.  Starbucks declined to give details on the solution but said the company tested multiple tools, hoping to avoid accidentally blocking inoffensive sites.  The rollout comes after years of pressure from the internet-safety organization Enough Is Enough.
