    Pornography will be blocked on Starbucks Wi-Fi starting next year, the company told NBC News Thursday.

    Internet safety advocacy group Enough is Enough has been running a porn-free campaign aimed at the coffee chain for years, and recently got more than 26,000 signatures on a petition.

    Viewing "egregious content" over Starbucks Wi-Fi has always violated company policy, a Starbucks representative said, adding that the company has "identified a solution to prevent this content from being viewed within our stores."

    Starbucks has not released details on how it plans to do so.
