Please build this, soon. We're a Microsoft house and I'm relying on software I don't trust as much as Covenant Eyes to filter internet access on our Windows Phone devices.

Hey guys.

Just wanted to drop in here and let you know that we hear your feedback. No real timeline on if/when this can come to fruition though. 

As a side note, what software are you currently using to filter the Windows Phone? What do you like about it? What do you not like about it.

This kind of feedback can be super helpful to us as we look towards the mobile future of Covenant Eyes

Hey John,

We use AT&T SmartLimits to control time of day / amount of of bandwidth access on the devices.

I use SmyleSafe for web content filtering. Essentially this means I had to uninstall Internet Explorer from the kids phones and the stability of this browser replacement is a bit sketchy. It also doesn't prevent re-installing IE from the store.

Lastly, I had used an app I whipped up in a weekend to email me IE history from my kids phone. But since that required actually launching the app, it was easy to bypass.

So, there is nothing in the windows store that I've come across that comes close to offering what Covenant Eyes does.

 Ross,

Thanks for sharing with us. 

I will be sure to pass this along to our team as they continue to evaluate how to best serve our members on mobile Windows. 

I will post something back here if I learn anything new.

Thanks again

Well, living in the same town as Covenant Eyes it makes me almost feel guilty to have to use something else :)

With the recent announcements relating to Windows Phone 8.1 being free to oems for phones, it seems like Microsoft has placed the platform on a track to be as popular as Android. It seems like it might be a good idea to get something released on the platform. You should be able to share most of the code from the Windows 8 version.

I believe there is a demand for windows phone version as there does not appear to be any other organisation providing a similar package. This gap in the market means that many who desperately need support are not getting it, therfore think that this development should be to priority.

To support this, please see the follow link where to the windows phone forum:
