I have found out that the latest Covenant Eyes software does not block pornography on internet sites such as Twitter or Facebook, is there a way for the filter to prevent accessing these sights in my Mac or iPhone?

Hi Alderman. Thank you for your question. In its current iteration our software is unable to block Facebook or Twitter directly. I would recommend disabling the Twitter and Facebook apps on your iPhone. While we cannot block videos within those sites our Screen Accountability software would be monitoring said activity and screen shots of those videos would be sent to an Ally. Our members have requested a block and allow list that can be added to as needed. While there is no time frame for when this is coming please be assured that it is on its way. Additionally you can set up a custom block and allow list within the Screen Time settings of your iPhone. I will include a link with detailed instructions on how to set up Screen Time on your iPhone in order to block Facebook and Twitter as well as other safety features native to your device.

Hello! We have some exciting news to share with you that may be relevant to your interests or concerns in this thread. A Custom Block List is officially coming to Screen Accountability very soon. Once implemented, this feature will be freely available to all Screen Accountability members who have filtering. If you have any additional questions, please see the attached article for more information. Thank you for your time and patience.
