Covenant Eyes is not compatible with Chromebooks. You may be able to install our Android™ app on a Chromebook (some people have), but the Covenant Eyes Android™ app will not run properly.

Ultimately the decision is up to you, but here are four options to consider:

Create Device Stations

We recommend you set up and use your devices in a shared space, like the family room. For example, you can set up a “gaming desk,” “homework computer station,” or “work desk” in your living room. When you take away the secrecy of device usage, people make better, healthier choices with their devices.

Adjust Router Settings

Devices that use Covenant Eyes Filtering and connect to a WiFi network with filtering may experience connectivity or filtering issues.

You can decrease the availability of inappropriate content by changing your router’s connection settings. CleanBrowsing and OpenDNS are free filtering companies. If you change your connection settings on your router to one of them, they’ll filter explicit content on any device that connects to your WiFi.

Use Google Family Link

GFL is only sometimes compatible with school-issued Chromebooks because the school manages the Chromebook. Therefore, parents must ask the school if the school is monitoring the Chromebook.

Google Family Link (GFL) helps parents monitor their children’s Chromebook activity. Review this step-by-step guide by Protect Young Eyes to set up GFL.

Consider a Different Device

If you are experiencing the temptation to look at inappropriate content on a Linux-based device because Covenant Eyes isn’t monitoring it, consider switching to Windows or Mac® computer so Covenant Eyes can watch it.
