What are the Covenant Eyes browser extensions?

In order to provide clarity to Accountability Reports, Covenant Eyes adds browser extensions as part of its installation process. These browser extensions determine whether a website has been visited directly or is merely a supporting piece of a website.

Supported browser extensions for Windows and Mac

On Internet Explorer, the extensions are automatically installed with the Covenant Eyes software, and cannot be disabled.

On Chrome, Firefox, and Safari, you will be asked to enable the browser extension when Covenant Eyes is installed. The extension can be disabled. Disabling the extension does NOT mean your Internet activity will not be monitored. However, your Reports will not have the same level of clarity when the extensions are disabled.

What do I do if an extension is disabled?

On Google Chrome

  • Open Chrome
  • Go to Extensions from the Settings menu (click the three line icon at the top right of your Chrome browser)
  • Locate the Covenant Eyes extension and check the box labeled Enable

 On Firefox

  • Open Firefox
  • Go to Add-ons from the Firefox menu (click the three line icon at the top right of your Firefox browser)
  • Locate the Covenant Eyes extension and click the Enable button

On Safari

  • Open Safari and go to the Preferences menu (preferences can be found by clicking on “Safari” at the top left of your screen)
  • Click Extensions in Preferences
  • Locate Covenant Eyes and check the box labeled Enable

At this point, the extension will be enabled and providing the extra level of clarity on your reports that they were designed for, this making life much easier on yourself and your Accountability Partner.

If you do not see the Covenant Eyes extension in your settings menu please call our Customer Support at 877.479.1119

What about Incognito mode?

When incognito mode/private browsing is turned on within Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, or Safari it is very similar to not having the extension enabled at all. Covenant Eyes still monitors all Internet activity, but your Reports will not have the same level of clarity. However, there is a way to allow the Covenant Eyes extension to run while in incognito mode/private browsing for the Chrome browser only.

Enabling Incognito on Chrome

  • Open Chrome
  • Go to Extensions from the Settings menu (click the three line icon at the top right of your Chrome browser)
  • Locate the Covenant Eyes extension and check the box labeled “Allow in Incognito”

All extensions will be removed when you uninstall Covenant Eyes.
