Is Siri fully protected under VPN?

So I've been using the CE app forever with pretty much no apps on my phone even with full device wide VPN. The challenge is that we've tested a hidden browser on an app and found that anything inappropriate DIDN'T get filtered or reported in the CE report so I don't have full trust that we can just use any apps yet.

Here is my question - is Siri fully protected with device wide VPN? Meaning if something inappropriate was searched or accessed via Siri would it show up in my partner's monthly report?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

If I understand correctly you still need to lock individual apps that are problematic. If I understand it right there is no filtering in the current VPN solution.(though some have reported various apps having some issues connecting etc...and Youtube Safe Mode seems to be on.)
It will report that you used the App named "Siri" for so many minutes and Maps for so many minutes, Facebook for so many minutes, etc....

The only App that is Guaranteed to be Safe is the Covenant Eyes Browser.
You have to lock the other Apps using the App Locker in Android or in IOS Enable Parental Controls and disable the undesirable apps like Siri, Safari, etc...

The challenge is to work within what Apple and Google gives Covenant Eyes access to which is quite different than a Windows PC running Covenant Eyes.

I do hope a true filtering can be introduced for iPhone, but unless Apple exposes Siri's traffic to Covenant Eyes it will be difficult to log and filter Siri. So fortunately we have the option to disable it.

So basically lock out the apps that have hidden back-doors and stick with the safe ones and the CE Browser.

P.S. I would guess that Browsers like Chrome and Safari will allow CE to plug directly into them eventually, just like we are seeing some Mobile Adblock Softwares having the ability to plug into the Mobile Browser.
