Accountability is the key to avoiding pornography and teaching our children how to thrive. And Covenant Eyes’ Screen Accountability™ service now provides a more powerful accountability service.
HOW COVENANT EYES WORKS
Using advanced artificial intelligence, Covenant Eyes monitors and takes periodic, blurred screenshots of all activity in the Covenant Eyes browser while still monitoring the top-level domains accessed across all other apps. Potentially explicit content and a sample of other activity is sent in a report to a person you trust. These reports help you have conversations about what you do on your devices—and why.
• Our built-in browser provides the best Screen Accountability and blocking experience.
• Our built-in browser uses advanced artificial intelligence to detect explicit content on the screen.
• This app uses a patented VPN-like technology to monitor what domains were accessed across your entire phone or tablet (available only through Covenant Eyes).
• SafeSearch is automatic in Google and Bing across ALL apps.
• Optional: Enforce YouTube Restricted Mode for users with blocking.
• This app supports members using our legacy Internet Accountability service.

Awesome and Freeing
I have had covenant eyes installed on my phone for quite a while but was super disappointed with the fact that it didn’t work for the iPhone. This new version fixed all of that and I’m very happy with it. There are some kinks and rough spots here and there, but overall it has worked well. It’s a wonderful experience to be free to not have to think about the temptation and to know that if anything pops up on my report my buddies will ask me about it.
All of that said I can’t wait until the day that the CE browser can be fully integrated into the iPhone system. It would be awesome if it would function seamlessly alongside things like keychain, wallet, and the rest of the IOS. I know that this is as much Apple needing to allow these things as it is CE working on their end. So thank you for your work and ministry.
Phone is unusable unless browser is open in background
So with the recent update that uses a VPN to track everything on the phone, I thought “what a great idea”. It was just another way to keep everyone more accountable. Well my happiness was quickly turned into sadness when I could not longer text, use my apps, or call people. Yes for a whole day my phone was completely useless. The only app that worked was the Covenant Eyes app. (I am the type of person that closes an app out, once I’m finished using it. I don’t like to have a bunch of apps running in the background) So at one point I didn’t close out Covenant Eyes and I let it stay open in the background. It was at this point I started to receive texts that hadn’t been coming through, and I noticed that my other apps started working. Basically the VPN connected to Covenant Eyes blocks my phone from connecting to my cellular network unless I keep the browser app open at all times. This is not okay!!!!!
On top of all of that, the app is buggy. It constantly asks me to sign in, it constantly deletes all of my open tabs, and it constantly crashes. Sometimes it crashes and I don’t realize it and then if people have been texting me, I don’t receive anything. This app has really become a problem. The use of a VPN was a great idea, but it has never been perfected. It’s almost like they released it without testing it first. If they don’t fix this soon, I’m going to have to cancel my subscription.
Amazing app - Needs more tweaks.
Overall, CE has been a great experience. It does the work to limit/restrict access to adult websites, but it will not set you free. Remember, this is meant to supplement your conversations, provide accountability, but ultimately you have to want freedom more than you want porn. CE played a pivotal role in my freedom from porn, so I recommend it for whoever is looking to get free. You combine CE with an invested friend, some hard conversations, brutal self-honesty & self-examination — if you’re a faith-based individual, involve God too.
The app itself works great for the most part, but some future updates could include more cohesiveness with iOS. For example, adding bookmarks to the home screen, importing calendar events from a website/email into your calendar, opening email attachments, using Face ID to auto fill passwords directly from iCloud Keychain bypassing the extra step of finding the website login, etc. keep up the great work!
