Globe blocks nearly 2,500 illegal sites to combat child pornography

Globe Telecom Inc. said it blocked a total of 2,471 sites in 2017 that hosted lewd content and child pornography as part of its #PlayItRight advocacy campaign. The company has stepped up its drive to repress child pornography by blocking websites as imposed in the rules and regulations of Republic Act 9775 or the Anti-Child Pornography Act of 2009.

As a purpose-led organization, we have a responsibility to ensure that our products and services will not be used for illegal activities. Globe Telecom is strongly committed to help address child pornography in the country. Yoly Crisanto, SVP for Corporate Communications

Globe has also taken an active role in promoting legitimate sources with safe and quality content, as well as to protect the sources of original content including the licensed content of its global partners. The company’s #PlayItRight advocacy goes beyond anti-piracy, it also aims to protect customers against malware and other cyber security threats that normally accompany illegal content or torrenting sites according to Ms. Crisanto.

    well i wish that their “drive to protect customers” also extended to their “value added services” fyi that half these services are sold to third party providers based in india. while half of them are in house. the half sold to india are easy to unsubscribe from an email from you and they stop charging and block your number from ever resubscribing. while their in house value added services would continue to text and resubscribe and charge you and they wont block these no matter what. while i applaud the stance on pornography the other part about The company’s #PlayItRight advocacy is laughable. their handling of customer data and the lack of need for consent before charging for VAS shows lack of any concern for security if they benefit from it.
