Is there a way to use CE on iPhone without VPN?

On the family iPad I use an app called Kidslox. With this app I can toggle a parent mode and a kids mode. I don't know all the details but when in kids mode it turns on a VPN to enforce some content restrictions and app blocking (by turning off some apps' connection to the internet). I would still like to use some kind of accountability when in parent mode. It's not a huge deal as it is a shared iPad with some restrictions still, but I was wondering if there was any options with CE.

Hello Chance,
     Thank you for bringing your question to this forum! I can assist you and answer your post:

1. Covenant Eyes' VPN: Covenant Eyes has a VPN of our own that runs constantly once you install and enable the Covenant Eyes app. This VPN helps monitor and report all Highly Mature websites from all apps on your device.

2. VPNs: VPNs usually cannot simultaneously run on a shared device. This is because of how VPNs run on devices: they want control over tunneling the device's internet connection. If two VPNs are present, they typically try to both tunnel the device internet traffic, and thus are battling each other because they are trying to perform the same function.

3. Compatibility: Covenant Eyes has yet to test our compatibility with the Kidslox application. Feel free to download both applications on your iPad, and try and run them side by side.

4. Disclaimer: Please note that Covenant Eyes cannot guarantee that our app will work alongside of Kidslox. If you experience trouble, please call Covenant Eyes Customer Service, or reply here, and we can look into any issues. 

Best Regards,


Covenant Eyes Customer Service Rep.
