How do I install Covenant Eyes on an Android™ device?

Covenant Eyes for Android™ monitors top level domains accessed by browsers or apps. In addition, we’ve partnered with Clean Browsing to enforce their Adult level blocking for all Android users.

Before You Install Covenant Eyes

  • Before you install Covenant Eyes, please disable the Blue Light filter app or any other screen dimming apps on your device. You should also disable or uninstall any app locking software  to prevent any unnecessary conflicts during the installation process. (The Covenant Eyes Android app includes a built-in app locker, so other app lockers are unnecessary.)
  • Make sure you have a Covenant Eyes account before you start the installation process. If you are not already a Covenant Eyes user, sign up now.

Installing Covenant Eyes for Android

The Covenant Eyes app can be found in the Google Play store. Once you have found the app, hit “Install” to begin.
