Hello Joshua, 
       Thank you for reaching out! The Covenant Eyes iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch app does not cover Apple's FaceTime app. There is a way to block FaceTime using Apple's parental controls, called Screen Time. To block the FaceTime app:

  1. Open the iPhone's Settings app
  2. Select Screen Time 
  3. Select Continue 
  4. Select This is my iPhone
  5. Select Content & Privacy Restrictions
  6. Turn the toggle switch on for Content & Privacy Restrictions 
  7. Select Allowed Apps 
  8. Turn the toggle switch off for FaceTime 
I would suggest creating a Screen Time Passcode. The Screen Time Passcode is a 4 digit numeric code that locks the Screen Time settings. This means that you can prevent the user from changing the Screen Time settings. 

I hope this helps,

Syd
