Every parent wants to trust their kids online, but good kids can make bad decisions.
- 39% of children admit to looking at websites or playing online games they believe their parents would disapprove of.*
- 54% of girls are “friends” on social networks with someone they have never met.**
- 75% of children have been contacted by a stranger online. 37% responded and only 4% told someone older they trusted.*
With so many dangers online, how can a parent keep up?
That’s why the National Fellowship of Catholic Men endorses Covenant Eyes.
Covenant Eyes makes it easy for parents to see what their kids do online…and block the bad stuff.
Just like movie or video game ratings, Covenant Eyes rates the content of every website using 6 age-based ratings.
With this rating system you can…
- Easily monitor what your kids are doing online – You receive weekly reports of your child’s Internet use. You can customize this report to show the ratings you are most concerned about.
- Filter your Internet access – You choose the maximum web rating you want your children to be able to see.
When your kids know you receive a report of the websites they visit, it changes how they use the web. It makes them think twice before doing something online that doesn’t uphold the values of your family.
Internet use reports, customizable by age
Customize the report to only show ratings you care about. For a child, you may want to see websites rated T (Teen) and above, but for a teen you may only want to see sites rated MT (Mature Teen) and higher. Facebook and other social networks are rated T (Teen) by default.
YouTube videos listed by their titles and ratings
Our reports show the web addresses and titles of YouTube videos that your child watches and assigns each a rating. We also show this information for Vimeo, Bing, and other video sites.
See the websites your teens visit on their smartphones. We offer an Internet browser for iPhone®, iPad®, and iPod touch®, and we’re testing monitoring apps for Android phones. Best of all, these apps are free when you subscribe to Internet Accountability on your computer.
Age-based blocking for each kid
Set the Filter to block or allow content based on our web content ratings and the maturity of each of your children. You may set the Filter to be more sensitive for a 8-year-old, and less sensitive for teens or adults.
Custom block/allow lists
If you want to block your kids from specific sites, you can create custom block/allow lists for each child.
Time controls to limit time online
End arguments about time spent online. Use the Filter to set the amount of time and the times of day each of your kids may be online. (Windows only)
How much does it cost?
When you get Internet Accountability and Filtering together, it costs just $10.49/month for the first username. Additional usernames are just $3.50/month each–a savings of $6.99 per username.
Why have more than one username?
By giving each of your kids a unique username, you can tailor the Accountability Reports and the Filter for each of them based on their maturity. When you receive a report for each child, you won’t have to guess who watched an adult-oriented video on YouTube. You can tailor your discussions based on each child’s Internet use.
Internet Accountability changes the way you use the Internet. Try it out for 30 days, and if you aren’t completely satisfied, you will be given a full refund.
