How do I change the filter’s Blocking Level?

The Covenant Eyes filter blocks explicit websites across your devices! Read on to learn about the different blocking options, who can change the Blocking Level, and how to change it:

What are the Blocking Level options?

There are two filtering options, called Blocking Levels:

Standard Blocking Level (default): Blocks access to all adult, pornographic, and explicit websites. It does not block proxy or VPN domains. Mixed-content sites (like Reddit) are allowed. Google and Bing are set to use SafeSearch.

Strong Blocking Level: Blocks everything Standard Blocking does, in addition to proxies, VPN domains, some mixed-content sites (like Reddit), and YouTube is set to restricted (YouTube Restricted Mode).

Who can change the Blocking Level?

The Filter Guardian can select/change the Blocking Level and personalize the Custom Website List for each member under his/her care. This means each member can have different blocking settings.

How do I change the Blocking Level?

  1. Sign into My Account and select the desired member’s name from the Relationships page.
  2. Scroll down and tap the “Settings” option for that member.
  3. On the Settings screen, tap the “Blocking Level” option.
  4. At the bottom of the screen, select either Standard Blocking or Strong Blocking and then tap the blue “Save” button. A confirmation message will populate at the bottom of the screen notifying you that the change was successful and to refresh Covenant Eyes on your devices.
