The information in this post has been changed since it was originally published.
The software features mentioned in this post were outdated (for both X3watch Pro and Covenant Eyes), so we decided to take the information down to avoid confusion.
As a general rule, Covenant Eyes does not want to bash other products in the marketplace, talking about what we have that they don’t have. We believe the value of our product stands on its own.
Here are some of the main features our members love about us:
1. Web Rating System
Our unique website rating system looks a lot of like movie ratings or video game ratings. Every web address your device accesses is rated for inappropriate content, using ratings like T for Teen or M for Mature.
2. Easy-to-Read Reports
Our users often comment how much they enjoy the tidiness of our reports. They are easy to scan for questionable material.
3. Easy-to-Scan Subject Lines
When Accountability Partners receive a Report, an overall rating for the report is included in the subject line (phrases like “Report Looks Good” or “Close Review Recommended”). This helps Partners know at a glance how closely they need to look at the Report.
4. Report Accuracy
Because of our web rating system, Covenant Eyes doesn’t just catch the blatantly bad websites, but also the “gray areas.” Accountability partners can see if mature material was accessed, even if it isn’t pornographic.
5. Ability to Customize Reports
Internet Reports can be customized in several ways.
a. Partners can choose how frequently the Reports are e-mailed to them.
b. Partners can change the sensitivity of the Reports based on the age of the user.
c. Partners can choose specific information they want to be able to see on Reports (like web searches, highly rated websites, average hourly usage, etc.).
d. Partners can generate Reports online 24/7 with their own custom date ranges.
6. Difficulty to Bypass
Users can’t uninstall the software without their Accountability Partners being notified. Covenant Eyes also covers every browser on your computer and has its own browser for iOS devices. Plus, a complete list of every web address accessed is available online 24 hours a day.
7. Mobile Apps
Covenant Eyes has a monitored browser for the iPhone®, iPad®, and iPod touch®. (Update for 2017: We just released our brand new, completely overhauled Covenant Eyes Accountability app for iPhone® and iPad®. Our patent-pending technology extends accountability coverage on the iPhone and iPad in ways that no one else can. Learn more about the new app.)
There is also an Android™ app that monitors your device’s stock browser and the amount of time other apps are used. (Update for April 2014: The Android app now has the ability to lock down other apps on the device.) Covenant Eyes apps are free, included as a part of your membership.
8. Fantastic Customer Support
Covenant Eyes has free phone technical support for all services on all devices. Our members regularly thank us for our excellent customer service. We are here to help however we can.
