This isn't a specific question about covenant eyes, but more of a general question. Are there any groups out there that understand technology and push companies to do a better job with internet protections? Couple of examples of what I have an issue with:
- I ran across a Sony Bluray player the other day that has a web browser that cannot be removed or password protected... it's an open pipe for all takers. Their parental controls didn't have any effect on the the browser and were basically a joke.
- Speaking of jokes, in iOS you can get to a google prompt in a ton of apps, not just browsers. Of course Covenant Eyes only works as long as you are using the Covenant Eyes app.
- iOS's parental controls block access to all kinds of legit stuff, making web access via the phone a nightmare. It's like a hammer when you need a scalpel.
- A Samsung Smart TV Iooked at had a browser in it that couldn't be password protected or eliminated (bad), but it at least had an "acceptable sites" capability that could be password protected. It does the job but it's clunky and hard for the average person to figure out. This is a common problem with controls like this... they often seem hastily assembled, non-intuitive, etc
