(CNN) - Starbucks reportedly plans to stop customers from looking at X-rated materials online in its coffee shops.

According to Business Insider, the coffee chain is rolling out a new tool next year.

The tech will supposedly stop customers from watching pornography on Starbucks' free public Wi-Fi.

Starbucks did not give details on how it will work but says it will also block viewing of other explicit content.

The coffee giant has been under pressure to block pornography for years.

Watching pornography is already banned at Starbucks locations but there aren’t content blockers on the stores' Wi-Fi.
