What is the difference between Internet Accountability Reports and the Detailed Logs?

This article applies only to Internet Accountability reports. It does not apply to Screen Accountability™ reports.

With the Covenant Eyes’ Internet Accountability service, you have access to the Covenant Eyes Internet Accountability report and the Detailed Browsing Log. The report and the log can be used together. The report typically gives allies the information that they need to have a discussion with the person who is using Covenant Eyes. However, using the log can increase clarity about specific entries.

Internet Accountability Reports

The report allows you to easily review the internet activity of the person you are helping. There are two types of Internet Accountability reports—New and Legacy. While the formats are different, both types provide a summary of the information. They will include any incidents of explicit activity, and both types will include other websites that were rated above the Report Sensitivity Level you selected. You can set a specific sensitivity level for your report, or customize how frequently you receive Internet Accountability reports, through your online account.

Detailed Browsing Logs

Unlike the report, the Detailed Browsing Log must be generated in “My Account”; it cannot be emailed to you. Another difference is seen in the fact that the report provides a summary of activity, but the log lists every single URL that the Covenant Eyes software detects. Each URL (entry) receives a rating and is displayed (logged) by the date and time it was detected. You can search the Detailed Browsing Log by typing a keyword into the search box. You can also search the log for a specific 15-minute section of the day by using the “Jump to a time” drop-down box. If you are only concerned about entries with high ratings, you may click “Next High Rating” to move forward through the log, or “Previous High Rating” to move backward.
