What is the Switch User option?

For people sharing a device, the Switch User option provides a way for each member to keep his/her activity distinct from the activity of other members. It’s easy to use!

On Android™ devices

Open the app and select “Switch User.” It’s in the upper right-hand corner.


On an iPhone® or iPad®

  1. Open the app.
  2. Tap the menu icon.
  3. Select “Switch User.”


On Mac computers

  1. Click the Covenant Eyes icon located in the Menu bar that runs along the top of the screen.
  2. Select “Switch User” from the drop-down menu.

On Windows computers

  1. Click the Hidden Icons arrow (^).
  2. Click the Covenant Eyes logo.
  3. Select “Switch User” from the pop-up menu.
  4. Enter the Username (and Password) that will be used, and click “Switch User.”



Backstory: In the past, when someone was done browsing the web, he could sign out of the Covenant Eyes software. Because signing out would disable the connection to the internet, that condition would force the next person using the device to sign in with his own Covenant Eyes username. The downside of the Sign In/Out option occurred if/when the software didn’t actually require someone to sign in; he could browse the internet with no accountability. The Switch User option provides better accountability.
