      I have a friend that was found to be using Limewire to get pornographic movies. It’s not clear to me just what Covenant Eyes does other than capture visited Websites. Does it do firewalling? etc? Since Limewire is a per-to-per sharing tool; what, if anything will to do to prevent Limewire use/abuse?

        Hey Rick, that is a great question and one we are asked fairly often on the Covenant Eyes Customer Service Team. Because Covenant Eyes is unable to monitor the content that is downloaded from peer-to-peer and file sharing sites but it can monitor the visit to such sites, we have rated websites like Limewire and others as Mature Teen or Mature by default.

        We have done this not to suggest that your friend is downloading inappropriate material, but to alert you, his Accountability Partner that he is visiting a website that offers the potential to download pornography and other inappropriate material. This is where the accountability relationship comes in. You, as your friend’s partner know he is visiting a website that is potentially dangerous to him, the next step is to talk to him about it.

        I have spoken with and corresponded with literally thousands of our Members, and I can say without a shadow of a doubt that Covenant Eyes is a fantastic tool in the fight against internet temptation, but real healing and success comes from a solid accountability partnership.

        Also, Covenant Eyes is not a firewall, but if your friend uses a Windows computer Covenant Eyes does offer a filter that can be configured to block websites like Limewire. If you would like to know more about the Filtering Service you can read about it on the Services page of the Covenant Eyes website, call our Customer Service Team at 877-479-1119 or send us an email to info@covenanteyes.com.
