Starbucks Claims It Will Ban Porn On Its Public Wi-Fi In 2019

Starbucks has come in limelight for not stopping its users from seeing porn on its in-shop Wi-Fi. Now the coffee retailer claims that in 2019 it will roll out a filter that stops users from seeing explicit material and porn in shops, as per media reports.

Starbucks claimed to the media, “While it hardly ever occurs, the employment of public Wi-Fi by Starbucks to see egregious or illegal content has ever been allowed. We have concluded a solution to stop this content from being seen inside our shops and we will start rolling out it to our US stores next year.” While there are not any details on what the plan is, Starbucks did claim that it had tested various techniques. As per the media reports and sources, Enough Is Enough (an Internet safety organization) has been pressuring Starbucks for years to put up content filters for in-shop internet access.

On a related note, Disapproving the posting of deepfakes Twitter earlier suspended the consumers and makers of such material on the website. Deepfakes are nothing but fake porn videos of celebrities made with the help of algorithm of machine learning.

“We will remove any account we recognize as the initial poster of intimate content that has been distributed or produced without the consent of the subject. We will also remove any account devoted to posting this kind of material,” claimed a spokesperson of Twitter to the U.S. tech website Motherboard this week in an interview.

Deepfakes are in infringement to terms of use of Twitter, as per which you may not post or share intimate photos or videos of someone that were produced or distributed without their consent. As a fraction of the move, Twitter also removed @mydeepfakes. It is an account that promotes deepfakes on the website.
