What devices does Covenant Eyes work on?

Covenant Eyes works on the four major operating systems: Android™, iOS, Mac, and Windows.

Android

  • Internet Accountability: Device-wide accountability for all apps and browsers via top-level domain monitoring (only available to accounts created before March 5, 2019)

How do I get Covenant Eyes on my Android phone or tablet? The app is free for members of Covenant Eyes. Download it from the Google Play Store. When installation is complete you’ll see the app on your screen. And, because the Covenant Eyes app works like a VPN, the Android system will display a key icon at the top of the screen.

iOS (iPhone® and iPad®)

  • Supports: iOS 11+
  • Screen Accountability: in-app random screenshots, and top-level domain monitoring in all other apps; filtering is optional
  • Internet Accountability: Device-wide accountability for all apps and browsers via top-level domain monitoring (only available to accounts created before March 5, 2019)
  • Filtering: Available; details depend on both the service (Screen Accountability or Internet Accountability) and the options selected for the username
  • Uninstall email notification: No

How do I get Covenant Eyes on my iPhone or iPad? The app is free for members of Covenant Eyes. Download and install the Covenant Eyes app from the App Store.
