The following content will be automatically filtered:
- web pages known to the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) that depict indecent images of children
- adverts or links to such content
This will help prevent children and young people from accessing inappropriate material themselves, and also limit accidental exposure to inappropriate material that others might be viewing on their devices in a public place.
Free Wi-Fi in York is part of the Digital York project, which also includes plans for improved broadband access to broadband in York both in the city and in rural areas.
As part of a government policy of investment in broadband, York is one of only 22 "Super Connected Cities" in the UK.
