  1. Thank you Luke! As always, your article is right on target. I plan to forward this to our middle and high school health teachers.

  2. Thank you for these wonderful articles that bring truth and a message of hope. My husband and I recently discovered someone we love dearly was struggling secretly and were both devastated. It has been a long road for us but we are beginning to see God’s hand on their life as well as leading us to know how to support our loved one. I read articles every week and am so encouraged that there are other who want to take a stand and protect the people of God. To offer them a place of refuge and let them know they can be restored and don’t have to let porn destroy them.

  3. I am truly thankful for articles like this. It is crucial that we make known the importance of accountability to today’s youth and people in general. Thank you for the Covenant Eyes blog, resources, & accountability report and filtering service. It is a great help!

  4. Are covenant eyes apps for iPods and iPhones in the works? Ones like the above mentioned android app that locks down other apps?

    • As of right now, no. Apple doesn’t give that kind of control to 3rd party apps like us. We are working on more comprehensive solutions for monitoring the iPhone, but not for blocking apps. Apple’s built-in restrictions do a decent job of that alright if you use them correctly.

  5. Thanks for the article. The statistics show how prevalent pornography is, especially on smartphones. We all know what.

    I recently started using the new Lock apps feature on my Samsung Galaxy 3. It’s one more step in the battle against porn. I’m thankful that Covenant Eyes is helping men, women, parents, teenagers, families, addicts, pastors, lay leaders, Sunday School teachers and what not to pursue purity. Keep up the good work!

    Peace. May the Lord use his people to pursue holiness and righteousness in this generation! Please help us Lord.

    For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 1 Corinthians 1:18 NIV

  6. I do not think a day goes by when I do not see the devastation porn has created in my life. I am talented at programming and therein came my weakness, I was now spending long hours in front of my laptop for the wrong reasons. Mobile tech made porn harder to resist. I remember the days when you did not have to get home to watch porn, you could watch it on the bus home. So I am grateful to Covenant Eyes. In a world where I even struggle to find a suitable accountability partner, their uninstall code page blocking keeps me from trouble. Happy with the new app blocking feature. Closed my Norton Family account as soon as the new feature came on the market. Many prayers to the brains behind Covenant Eyes.

  7. About the Iphone, Other than restricting to no wifi and not being able to uninstall the Safari browser, you can substitute Safari with a browser called Mobicip, which disables Safari. The is an annual fee but, if Mobicip in installed on the Iphone or Itouch, it can be set for certain filtering that Safari cannot be. Mobicip can also be set to email you a report on activity. Just search the web for Mobicip. I have used it for several years now with great satisfaction. For your router at home, another service that is free is OpenDNS. I subscribe for 10 dollars a year to it to support it. OpenDNS filters your entire network according to how you set it and it does it via their DNS servers, which you point your router to. Millions of users on business networks and schools, libraries use OpenDNS. Also filters phishing attempts. Good instructions for setting it up on your router can be found on the website. Your internet provider remains the same and is unaffected by pointing your DNS1 and DNS2 router settings to OpenDNS servers. God bless.

    • OpenDNS adds an additional layer of protection to your Network, without affecting it adversely.

    • Yes. OpenDNS is available for free and you can point a router’s DNS Server settings at it, and it will filter all traffic through it. It’s key to remember (for anyone else reading) this isn’t a setting on the phone. This is a setting you change on your router.

  8. You people talk about the dangers of porn and the inevitability of your child watching porn more than kids are actually watching porn. Maybe you guys are the one with the problem?
