The fact that Starbucks has decided to introduce full-scale filtering in the store's free Wi-Fi is said to have pressure from anti-pornographic group " Enough is Enough ". Enough is Enough gathered signatures from thousands of politicians and organizations and asked McDonald's, the leading food service industry, and Starbucks to set up content filtering in the in-store free Wi-Fi. In response to this protest, McDonald's and Starbucks replied "Filtering pornographic content" in 2016.

However, in Starbucks stores in some countries such as England, browsing pornographic images inside the store was regulated, but there were no internal policies that would be applied to all Starbucks stores including American stores. In contrast, Enough is Enough says "Starbucks is more concerned about providing paper straws to protect the environment than protecting children and guardians from pornographic content with free Wi-Fi "I strongly criticized Starbucks.

Starbucks informed The Verge, "There are few cases of browsing illegal content or malicious sites using Starbucks' public Wi-Fi, and of course not even allowing permission, so as not to display malicious content As we know the solution to do, filtering will be applied at Starbucks' American stores since 2019 ". Starbucks did not clarify details of the content filter, but said that it tested multiple filtering.
