Covenant Eyes provides an accountability and filtering solution for Apple's iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
The Covenant Eyes app is an Internet browser for Apple’s iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. It is designed to replace Safari. This app is free to WebChaver subscribers.
Because of the way Apple designed its operating system, this app does not work like the desktop versions of our software. It cannot run in the background, monitoring your Internet activity and filtering content generated through other browsers and apps. Only Internet activity logged through the Covenant Eyes browser is filtered and recorded in the Accountability Report.
The Covenant Eyes browser app is available as “Covenant Eyes” on Apple’s iPhone App Store. In order to use this app, you must have a WebChaver username with Internet Accountability and/or Filtering.
Once you have installed the app, simply sign in using your username and password. You will remain signed in under this account. If you need to switch users, you may do so through the “Settings” app.
The Covenant Eyes browser app is designed to work hand-in-hand with your device’s built-in restrictions. Because Covenant Eyes only monitors and blocks web pages visited through this browser app, you should adjust your device’s settings and block access to certain apps.
Under the Restrictions menu, you may disable certain apps and content.
The Covenant Eyes app is a web browser, designed to replace Safari or other browsers on your device. To use the app, click on the Covenant Eyes icon. Once you have signed in, use it to browse the web. Standard features include bookmarks and tabbed browsing. You may also choose Google, Bing, or Yahoo as your default search engine through the “Settings” app.
Currently, Apple does not allow users to choose a default browser other than Safari. In order to open links from e-mail in the Covenant Eyes browser, you will have to copy and paste them individually.
First, tap and hold the link you wish to open, and select “copy.” Then open the Covenant Eyes browser.
If this is the first time you have opened the browser, or if you open a new tab, you will see a dialog box asking if you would like to open the copied link. Otherwise, paste the copied URL into the address bar.
You can import bookmarks from most browsers on your desktop or laptop into the Covenant Eyes browser. In your browser, open your bookmarks and look for the option to export your bookmarks as an HTML file.
Then, with your device plugged into your computer, use iTunes to open the apps management menu on your device. Under “File Sharing,” select the Covenant Eyes app and drag your HTML file into “CovenantEyes Documents.”
The next time you open your Covenant Eyes app, your bookmarks will be imported.
