I was disappointed to see that McAfee (which acquired Safe Eyes about two years ago) has decided to lay off the staff and close the doors of SafeEyes’ office. As mentioned on the SafeEyes’ website, they will only continue to support the SafeEyes software for existing users until January 1, 2014.
Safe Eyes and Covenant Eyes have been working side-by-side as friendly “competitors” to provide filtering and accountability in the fight against Internet temptation. We have had a good relationship, even helping each other out in programming from time to time.
Many thousands of people have been helped by their use of the Safe Eyes’ program, and the innovation of the Safe Eyes staff has continually kept us on our toes, challenging Covenant Eyes to maintain a quality program.
I will miss the challenge, the competition. Kudos to the Kenny brothers for bringing Safe Eyes to life, and to the Safe Eyes staff for affecting so many people’s lives by helping to bridge the gap between technology and relationships.
