NEW YORK — McDonald's restaurants in the U.S. have started filtering free Wi-Fi service to prevent customers from viewing porn in their restaurants.

McDonald's corporate-owned restaurants in the U.S. started using a filter to block pornographic content from being viewed over its Wi-Fi during the first quarter of 2016.

The corporate office also has provided the same filtering service to franchisees.

"McDonald's is committed to providing a safe environment for our customers," McDonald’s spokeswoman Terri Hickey said in a statement. "We are pleased to share that Wi-Fi filtering has been activated in the majority of McDonald's nearly 14,000 restaurants nationwide."

McDonald’s now joins such fast-food eateries like Chick-fil-A, Subway and Panera Bread that already filter porn from their free Wi-Fi services.

Enough Is Enough, which claims to be an internet safety advocacy group, has been lobbying Starbucks to be the next to add porn filters. But Starbucks hasn’t yet cut out porn from being viewed at their stores.

The group launched a campaign in 2014 that encouraged McDonald's and Starbucks to break the connection for those who enjoy porn fare.
