SEATTLE — Starbucks said Friday it will add porn-blocking filters to its in-store Wi-Fi systems.

The coffee company’s move follows McDonald's recent decision to block customers from accessing Wi-Fi-enabled porn at its U.S. corporate-owned restaurants.

"Once we determine that our customers can access our free Wi-Fi in a way that also doesn't involuntarily block unintended content, we will implement this in our stores," Starbucks said, according to a statement made to CNN Money.

"In the meantime, we reserve the right to stop any behavior that interferes with our customer experience, including what is accessed on our free Wi-Fi."

XBIZ on Thursday reported that McDonald’s started filtering porn during the first quarter of 2016. The chain already had filtering in place at its U.K. restaurants.

Enough Is Enough launched a campaign in 2014 that encouraged McDonald's and Starbucks to break the porn connection. Today, it succeeded with both campaigns.
