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.

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.
