Mac®

  1. You should see a Covenant Eyes icon in the menu bar, at the top of the screen near the WiFi symbol. If you do not see the eye, then Covenant Eyes has not been properly installed on your Mac. Read: “How do I download and install Covenant Eyes on Mac?
  2. Clicking that Covenant Eyes icon will make a drop-down menu appear. Look at the last line to see if screenshots have been analyzed.
  3. On older versions, make sure the eye is dark. If it is greyed out, or (on really old versions) closed, this means your username is not currently logged in. Click on the Covenant Eyes icon and then click “Sign in.” Use your username and password.
