Abby Willmarth has worked with several anti-trafficking organizations to educate and mobilize churches and individuals to fight trafficking. Over those years, she began to see just how many ways trafficking connected to porn. Now she works at Covenant Eyes to create educational content that helps people find freedom from porn. She lives in Michigan with her husband and two sons.

Confession: I can be a procrastinator. Over a year ago, my husband asked me to find a home for a huge pile of extra pillows stacked at the foot of our basement stairs. Guess where they are today? Yep, still there.

It’s probably a 30 minute task, but frankly, I haven’t felt any pain or pressure from leaving them there.

We talk to many people who think setting up accountability is like moving my pile of pillows. Nice to do, but not necessary or worth the 30 minutes of time.

But some things are just too important to put off. Setting up Covenant Eyes Screen Accountability™ is one of those things.

Using Accountability Can Change Your Life

There is too much at stake to use the internet and mobile devices without accountability. If porn doesn’t feel like an immediate threat that you need to address, you may want to think again.

With just a wrong click here or a typo there, your child can be exposed to content her little eyes should never see. Or you could be caught up in the havoc porn brings and ruin the relationships most precious to you.

Maybe you already know porn is a problem in your life. But for whatever reason, you’ve put off trying accountability. You may think white-knuckling it or a filter will cut it.

Filters and porn blockers play a part in living a porn-free life, but they’re not enough. There always seems to be a way around them. They are silent and don’t notify anyone when someone is struggling and seeks out porn. You may think your devices are locked-down with a filter, but someone can find a loophole and access porn without anyone knowing.

Screen Accountability, however, sees what you see on your screen. It monitors what is being viewed on the screen and sends a report with blurred screenshots to a trusted ally who’s helping to look out for you. It creates opportunities to have honest conversations about how devices are used that break down shame and foster healing.

These healing conversations are why Covenant Eyes was started in 2002. Since our beginning, we’ve generated over 100 million accountability reports, helping over one million people in their journey toward porn-free lives.

“I was addicted to porn and masturbation for around 10 years. I tried everything to be healed, but only one thing worked: ACCOUNTABILITY. I had heard about it, but I never dared to do it. I was too afraid. I loved that people had a good image of me…but it was the only way out.

How can I say this? Because I have been healed for more than 3 years now. Covenant Eyes is key because when you feel really tempted, it helps you stand firm. Don’t wait to speak to someone, speak now. It’s the only way.

      Good Morning Covenant Eyes Team:
      I have two questions:
      Does the $11.99/month for Accountability take the place of the current monthly amount ($15.00) I already pay?

      I have never had and still do not have an Accountability Partner. Would the Accountability feature still help me without an Accountability Partner?

      Thanks in advance. Hobson Hamilton, Jr.
