  • Members have limited control over their Custom Website List. They can block websites with the Custom Website list, but once they've added it, only the Filter Guardian can remove it.

  5. You'll see a confirmation message and 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 refreshing Covenant Eyes, clear your browser's cookies and cache. Choose your browser to learn how to clear them: Google Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.
