McDonald's says it is installing Wi-Fi filters that will keep people from watching free porn in its restaurants. 

Most people have zero desire to watch porn at McDonald’s, and probably nobody wants to watch anybody else watch porn at McDonald’s, but until very recently that was completely possible via McDonald’s free public Wi-Fi. Now McDonald’s says it is installing filters to put a stop to the practice.

According to Gizmodo, an “Internet safety group” has been petitioning McDonald’s for two years to install filters on its Wi-Fi to prevent people from viewing porn in the restaurants, lest some unwitting, innocent child accidentally catch sight of something untoward.  

"McDonald's is committed to providing a safe environment for our customers," a McDonald’s spokesperson said. "We had not heard from our customers that this was an issue, but we saw an opportunity that is consistent with our goal of providing an enjoyable experience for families."

McDonald’s new porn-free Wi-Fi is reportedly already in place in most corporate-owned stores, and will eventually be in place at all corporate-owned locations in the U.S.
