Adult (Non-Parent): any member marked as an Adult (Non-Parent) in our system can generate an uninstall code. That member does not automatically interact with Child members on the account.

Adult (Parent/Guardian): any member marked as Adult (Parent/Guardian) can generate an uninstall code. Also, they will automatically receive reports and the ability to adjust Blocking levels for all members, on the account, that are marked as ‘Child.’

Ally: a person who receives the report(s). This role is selected by the member or the Account Administrator. An ally is able to a) adjust report frequency, b) generate an online report 24/7, and c) receive reports for more than one member.

Child: any member marked as a Child in our system is also Restricted (see below). They cannot generate an uninstall code, and their report is automatically sent to any Parent on the account.

Guardian – a person who controls the Filter settings for themselves or another member. This role can be selected by either the member or the Account Administrator. A guardian can adjust the Blocking level and control the Custom Block List

Member: someone using the Covenant Eyes services. There is no limit for how many devices they may use. They can send their report to as many allies as they like.

Restricted member: this member is not allowed to generate or receive an uninstall code without express permission from the Account Administrator. The Account Administrator can restrict any other member on the account; Account Administrators cannot be restricted. Child members are restricted by default.
