Objectionable content is used to identify inappropriate content, pornography, terrorism, violence, hate speech, drugs, fake news, etc. Much like Malicious detection, the ability to detect Objectionable content is crucial to web safety for vendors which provide services like web filteringparental controls, or brand safety. However, unlike Malicious URLs, while Objectionable content may be offensive, it will not corrupt a device or system like viruses and other exploits — it’s simply content which may be perceived as inappropriate for certain age groups, within business environments, or across different cultures. While some sites which promote violence may be perceived as ‘malicious’ due to the nature of the content, it is only classified as Objectionable because it does not contain the type of threat which might compromise an organization’s network.

Enforcement of such an ambitious initiative comes with many content categorization and technical challenges, not just in the UK, but within any internet service provider infrastructure.

Adult Content Accessible at U.S. WiFi Hotspots

Wi-Fi hotspots commonly found in many American coffee shops, restaurants and other popular after-school hang outs are providing kids with what they demand – free Internet access. This may help keep them connected with family or friends, in addition to sparing parents from costly data plan overages, but the complimentary Web access was proven to come with a twist in an Adaptive Mobile independent study. The adult, dating, extremist, drug, gambling and other similarly objectionable content typically blocked at home by some type of parental controls solution is easily accessible by kids at these Wi-Fi locations.
