Generating an Uninstall Code

You will need an uninstall code to uninstall Covenant Eyes. Your Covenant Eyes ally will receive an email letting them know that you have generated an uninstall code. This code is only good for the day it was generated.

In your online account, find and click “Uninstall” in the Menu that is on the left side of the screen. Select which user needs the uninstall code. You will then receive your uninstall code. Make sure to write down the code or print the page – you’ll need it in a minute.

If you cannot generate an uninstall code, your Account Administrator might not have given you the ability to uninstall. If that’s the case, you will need to contact your Account Administrator for an uninstall code.
