There’s bad news for those who want a little extra stimulation with their coffee. Whether you’re into flat whites or hot chocolate, you only have until 2019 to watch porn at Starbucks.

So far the global giant has taken a hands-off approach to in-store porn. But after years of complaints over people watching hardcore pornography, it has announced it will introduce a “global protocol” to prevent customers watching explicit material on its public Wi-Fi.

“We have identified a solution to prevent this content from being viewed within our stores and we will begin introducing it to our US locations in 2019,” a Starbucks spokesperson told NBC News. It is believed the same policy will apply to New Zealand stores.

While porn is currently banned under Starbucks’ terms of service, there isn’t anything actually in place to stop people from doing so.

It’s been under pressure to put up a filter for years, with US internet safety organisation Enough Is Enough saying its network has been “attracting paedophiles and sex offenders” and putting children at risk.
