Hi,

I noticed that the application is not able to report activity for the CM suite of software, specifically CM browser.
Could you guys add it to your backlog to look into that ?

Thanks!

Hi Fabrice,
   Thanks for the input! We love getting feedback from our members so that we can provide the product that's best suited for you.  I will absolutely forward your feature request on to our Android Development Team, and in the meantime, if you're looking for a browser for your Android device that Covenant Eyes can provide in depth monitoring for, we currently provide Accountabliity for Google Chrome, Internet/Browser (the stock browser on many Android devices), Google Search, Firefox, Silk, Apus, Opera, Opera Mini, Opera Mini Beta, and Dolphin browsers.

Thanks again!

Thanks Samantha,

Could you also pass to the team that the app locking feature didn't work with the CM browser ?

Hi Fabrice,
     It is unusual that your app locking wasn't successful with the CM browser. I downloaded it onto one of our Android devices to test it here at Covenant Eyes and I was able to lock it. Are you having issues locking any other applications? What version of Covenant Eyes are you using, and what type of device do you have and what version of Android software is it running? This issue should be resolvable.

Hi Samantha,

You are correct it actually locks the app. Since I had several apps of the CM suite installed at the same time for testing purposes I guess I was opening a different app than the one I had locked.

Thanks again for everything,
Fabrice

Hi,

I would like to second Fabrice's request for CM browser coverage. It is a highly rated app with nearly 2,000,000 installs, and it is my preferred browser.

Thanks,
Craig

I'm glad to see the CM browser issue is being addressed here, and thankful for the responses from the Covenant Eyes team and users. I'd like to add my own concerns. When I first got my current Android phone I was pleased with CM's line of apps, until I found it advertised that they included a private browsing feature within their apps. (First I saw this in CM Security and stopped using it, and then it showed up in an update for the highly-popular CM Cleaner; thankfully there are Lite versions of these apps that don't include a "safe" browser). I suspect there are other apps that conceal this "helpful" feature as well, but I don't want to know. (I was saddened by the way this was advertised, as a cartoon of man nervous that his wife would find his browsing history and be upset, or xxx displayed on a phone screen with a caption stating the effect that one "deserves" to keep his browsing secret from nosy significant others.)

Also, I think it's important to mention that my sole real reason for choosing an Android phone over an iPhone is because it has had better Covenant Eyes support--that's how highly I value its accountability features. I'm very pleased to have received the brand-new announcement about the overhaul for iPhone support: "All Google or Bing searches in any browser view, including those embedded in other apps, will be rated if they are clicked on." I hope this will become true of Android as well.
