Backstory: In the past, when someone was done browsing the web, he or she could sign out of the Covenant Eyes software. Signing out would disable internet access, which would force the next person using the device to sign in with their own Covenant Eyes username to get online. However, in rare instances, a technical issue could occur where the software didn’t properly require someone to sign in and you could browse the internet without accountability. The Switch User option provides better accountability by constantly keeping the previous username signed in.
