On computers and iPhones®/iPads®, we monitor private browsing! For Android™, we notify the Ally if the member used private browsing.
Covenant Eyes & Incognito Mode
This article will cover how Screen Accountability and Incognito Mode/Private Browsing work with:
On Android™ devices, Covenant Eyes can’t screen-capture your activity when Incognito Mode is on. However, if a member uses Incognito Mode, we inform their Ally:
- Allies using the Victory app will see a note in the Summary section when they open the app.
- Allies using email reports will see an Unmonitored Screen Activity message on the report.
Coverage for Incognito Mode/Private Browsing depends on what browser you use on your iPhone®:
- Our iPhone® app doubles as a browser and doesn’t have Incognito Mode.
- If you use Private Browsing with Safari on your iPhone®, we’ll still screen-capture all your activity via our Safari extension.
- For all other browsers (Google Chrome, Firefox, etc.) on iPhone®, we are unable to take screenshots but will monitor and report any concerning websites you access via domain monitoring.
- For best protection, use Apple’s device controls, Screen Time, to limit browsers and protect our Safari extension from being uninstalled.
Mac® and Windows
Our monitoring service, Screen Accountability, still randomly screen-captures and scans your screen for mature content when Incognito Mode is used on a computer.
