Incorporate Passwords/Keychain and Add Tabs

I just started using Covenant Eyes. I've been using Apple products for about 6 years, so I'm pretty used to what they include in their operating systems. One thing I have been sort of frustrated with is the iOS Covenant Eyes browser. There are primarily two reasons, but a third related one. First, I use a lot of tabs. It doesn't matter if I'm on my phone, iPad, or laptop, I always have a lot of tabs open. Often it's simply related to research, sometimes there're are other reasons. When an iPad is you're primary work machine, having limited tabs is really an issue (as a side note, it'd be nice to have them set up as tabs when in landscape mode, esp. on the iPad). For this reason, I haven't been able to turn Covenant Eyes into my only browser (which sort of defeats the purpose). Related to this is the handoff feature that's available on Safari. Sometimes I'm looking at something on my iPad and then I need to pull it up quickly on my phone, which is a great help in Safari but lacking in Covenant Eyes' browser. Finally, I have tons of passwords saved in Safari for all of the different websites I use, which are inaccessible in Covenant Eyes. I haven't memorized very many of my passwords, and it would be such a hassle to go through and reset all of them. Somehow incorporating the passwords from Safari would be a great help, especially for websites that I frequently visit and now have to sign in everytime. I know this is a long post, but it has really been something that has frustrated me since I started using Covenant Eyes.

Hello Daniel,

Thank you for your feedback and I do apologize for your frustration. We agree that we have a few limitations presently with our iOS app. Our developers have been working and continue to work on our iOS app to make it the best that it can be within in the confines of Apple's restrictions for monitoring applications like ours. We are currently working on an app that will hopefully open up our monitoring to the device as a whole as opposed to just our app. 

I have taken your requests and forwarded them on to our developers and encourage you to continue to give us feedback so we can provide the best software available.

If you have any further feedback or questions feel free to contact our Customer Service at 877.479.1119.

Best regards,
Annelise

Annelise,

Maybe it is a mute point with the impending updates in the works, but I was curious about the same type of thing. I use AgileBits' 1Password app extensively. It uses iOS an extension to allow access to login info directly in-browser. Currently some extensions are available in CE like 3rd party email apps, file transfers  and Apple first party Facebook Twitter etc. Is the omission of 1Password due to the type of extension? I use the extension so often, I can't rely on just the CE browser and have Safari allowed with Apple's restrictions and filtering, OpenDNS filtering and even TMobile's content filtering. I'll be honest, my family's annual renewal is in a few weeks and I've been looking at cheaper accountability alternatives.  Having access to 1Password in-browser is a game changer for me. If the next update creates extension access or eliminates the need for the CE browser altogether - that's certainly reason for me to stay.
