How do I use Covenant Eyes on a shared Windows computer?

We highly recommend each person that uses a shared computer has his/her own computer profile.


Why should I use multiple Windows profiles?

If you use your own Covenant Eyes username and Windows profile, your report will only have your own activity.

If multiple people share one Covenant Eyes username and one Windows computer profile/login, everyone’s computer activity will be on one, long activity report. In this case, the Covenant Eyes activity report may be hard to read because you won’t know what activity belongs to each person.

How do multiple Windows profiles work with Covenant Eyes?

Each person who uses the Windows computer also needs their own Covenant Eyes username so that they can sign in to the Covenant Eyes software on his/her own Windows computer profile. To accomplish this:

  1. Create a Covenant Eyes username for each member on your account.
  2. Create a Windows computer profile for each member.
  3. Install Covenant Eyes on the main Windows profile (the Administrator computer profile) and then Covenant Eyes will automatically install across all the Windows profiles.
  4. When each person is done using the computer, they should hit “Windows” key + the “L” key on the keyboard and the main log-in screen will appear. Whoever wants to use the computer next will have to use their own profile username and password to access the computer.
