I’m (not) lovin’ it: Fast food chain blocks access to adult content for customers using free public WiFi in its restaurants

McDonalds

McDonald’s is no longer serving sides of smut with its slabs of greasy meat.

The fast food chain announced that it has blocked all access to adult content for its customers using free WiFi in its thousands of ‘restaurants’ worldwide.

In what is pretty bad news for all those bun-loving perverts out there, the filtered Wi-Fi policy was rolled out in corporate-owned locations earlier this year, meaning an end to the McErotica meal.

According to Enough Is Enough (EIE), an internet-safety organisation, the majority of McDonald’s restaurants now offer filtered Wi-Fi access.

The EIE said that parents need to know which family restaurants are safe from online threats.

“Other companies would be wise to follow McDonald’s’ lead,” Hughes added.

‘Other companies’ most likely refers to Starbucks, who the EIE approached the same time as McDonald’s about porn filtering back in 2014, but the latter has still not delivered.

“Both companies were early adopters in the UK, where they voluntarily filtered pornography on their public WiFi networks,” the group said.

“Parents can have peace of mind that, when they or their children go to McDonald’s, they will have a safer and more friendly WiFi experience, filtered from pornography, from child porn and from potential sexual exploitation and predation,” said EIE president Donna Rice Hughes.

“McDonald’s deserves widespread praise for this act of corporate responsibility and commitment to children and family safety. Internet safety is now the fourth top-ranked health issue for US children, with peer-reviewed research confirming internet pornography as a public health crisis.”

McDonald’s responded rapidly and positively to the initial outreach to their CEO by EIE in spring 2014, and began exploring options for WiFi filtering. To date, Starbucks has yet to respond.

However, this is likely not the last time customers will witness dirty scenes in McDonalds.

Last month, a repulsed dad has told of his horror after filming ‘shocking filth and grime’ in a McDonald’s restaurant with a FIVE STAR hygiene rating.

Alex Hunt, 42, says he was left horrified by what appears to be mud smeared on the floor of the kitchen and a ‘disgusting’ drinks machine.

The entrepreneur from Milton Keynes captured the mess on video after he had stopped off for a bite to eat with his son Max, 10, and partner Julie Paarman on the way home from a family outing to Bournemouth beach.

Alex said: “I’d just ordered food and noticed how filthy it was. There were chips and nuggets all over the floor.
