My report generated many web entries as dns:// for several sites at the same time. I did not have access to any web browsing during this time, so my guardian had many questions about my activity. I am completely confused and bewildered as to why there is so much activity and just for one day after 3 PM. Please help me understand why these entries appear. I use the Android app.
Thanks

Hi Rudy,
    Thanks for reaching out! Here are some key functions on how the Covenant Eyes Android app works:

1. Covenant Eyes monitors ALL app activity, not just browsers. This means we monitor every app on your device, not just Firefox, Chrome, etc. 
2. Multiple websites can be reported for the same time period. Since more than one app can be running on your phone at a time, this means more than one website can be reported at the same time. 
3. One app on your device can generate more on than one website. For example: The Fipboard app can generate website activity for each article it loads.
4. Covenant Eyes monitors your device 24/7 for Highly Mature activity. It does not stop monitoring unless you turn off your device. This can explain why you see activity for all hours of the day.  
5. Covenant Eyes monitors all types of web elements. This means we can report Highly Mature ads, pop-ups, links, websites, and more. 

I hope this helps!

Syd
