  4. Scroll down and tap "Custom Website List."

    The Dos & Don'ts of Blocking a Website

    Example Accepted or Not Accepted Note ✅ Accepted This is how we suggest you enter a website into the Custom Website List.
    * ❌ Not Accepted The Custom Website List does not support wildcards (*). ❌ Not Accepted The Custom Website List does not support "HTTP" or "HTTPS" and will remove them automatically if you type them in. ❌ Not Accepted A specific page of a website cannot be allowed or blocked. ✅ Accepted A specific section of a website, called a subdomain, can be allowed or blocked. ❌ Not Accepted You cannot add an IP Address to the Custom Website List.

  6. You'll receive a confirmation message.
  7. You'll see the website with ⛔️ next to it. Refresh Covenant Eyes on your devices, and now the website is blocked.

    If the website is still accessible after you refresh Covenant Eyes, clear your internet browser's cookies and cache. Choose your browser to learn how to clear them: Google Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.
