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

Parental Controls

You can password-protect the Kindle’s Parental Controls and use them to limit content settings.

  1. Open the Settings app directly, or swipe down from the top of the screen and tap the “Settings” icon.
  2. Tap “Parental Controls.”
  3. Tap the toggle switch next to Parental Controls.
  4. Create a password and, if asked, confirm it.
  5. After you enable Parental Controls, a lock icon will appear at the top of the screen. You’ll also see several settings you can tailor to your situation before exiting the Settings app.

Other Options

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

  1. Create device stations in public areas in your home.
    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.

  2. Protect your home by adjusting the settings on your router (the device that sends and amplifies your WiFi).
    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.

  3. 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 a Windows or Mac® computer so Covenant Eyes can monitor it.
