Starting with Covenant Eyes iPhone® app version 6.0, we use a Safari® extension to screen-monitor the Safari® app! If you update the Covenant Eyes app, you may need to manually turn on our Safari® extension to experience Screen Accountability in Safari®.

Before You Begin

Part One: Turn on the Covenant Eyes Safari® Extension

  1. Open the Settings app on the iPhone® or iPad®.
  2. Scroll down and tap “Safari.”
  3. Tap “Extensions.”
  4. Tap “Covenant Eyes.”
  5. Move the "Covenant Eyes" and the "Allow in Private Browsing" toggle switches to the right to turn them on (the switches will turn green).

    The "Allow in Private Browsing" option only appears on iPhones with iOS 17. If you don't have iOS 17, you won't see the "Allow in Private Browsing" option.

  7. Tap “Allow.” Great job! You turned on the Covenant Eyes Safari® extension.

    Do not delete the Covenant Eyes app from your iPhone®. The Covenant Eyes app must remain on your device to run the Covenant Eyes Safari extension.


Part Two: Lockdown the Safari® Extension

You must use Apple’s device controls, Screen Time, and its Limit Adult Content feature so the user can’t turn off our Safari® extension.
