Depending on which Covenant Eyes mobile app (iOS or Android) you are referring to, the answer is slightly different.

On iOS, our app is a browser, so it would use data to load any pages you request within the browser. We also send a very small message to our server when you sign in to our app and when you load new pages so that we can log those URLs to our servers.

On Android, we only use send very small messages when you sign in, when you load a new page in a browser we monitor, or when you launch or close an application.

All in all the amount of additional data we use is so small that the difference in data usage between using your phone with our app installed vs. without our app installed should not be noticeable.
