With all the questions lately about privacy from information tracking apps, how safe is the CE user? Is it recommended, or even work, to use a Safari extension/app like Disconnect?

Hi Jon. Thanks for your question. On mobile devices Covenant Eyes runs as the VPN to monitor domains and websites. Apps like Disconnect can interrupt our VPN. Additionally, we do not recommend using privacy apps or extensions. Their goal often runs counter to our mission even if installed with the best of intentions. If you have further questions, I would encourage you to call in to 877-479-1119.
