How do I refresh Covenant Eyes?

After making changes to the Covenant Eyes Filter, the Covenant Eyes software needs to be refreshed to make the changes effective.

Refreshing on Windows

To access the Covenant Eyes icon, open the System Tray. Click the white arrow (^) symbol in the bottom, right-hand corner of the screen. Next, click on the Covenant Eyes icon. Then select “Refresh Covenant Eyes.”


Refreshing on Mac

Click on the Covenant Eyes icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen near battery status, date, and time.


Refreshing on iPhone®, iPad®, and iPod touch®

Open the Covenant Eyes app and click the Actions icon (it looks like a little box with an arrow shooting up). Under “Settings,” select “Refresh Covenant Eyes,” and your new Filter settings will be applied to the Covenant Eyes browser.


Refreshing on Android™ Tablets and Phones

Currently, Covenant Eyes does not have filtering available for Android. However, Filter Guardians can enable YouTube Restricted Mode, which limits inappropriate videos on YouTube, which requires refreshing Covenant Eyes.  Filter Guardians can also enable App Locking for Android users.

Open the Covenant Eyes app. In the list of actions you will see the option to “Refresh Covenant Eyes.” A message will populate on your screen to inform you the refresh was successful.
