This item has applied to mobile devices for awhile, and was recently incorporated into our software for Windows computers. This option has not yet been incorporated into Covenant Eyes® for Mac.
In order to provide more thorough accountability, we replaced the former option to 'Sign Out' with 'Switch User'.
For people sharing a device, the Switch User option 1) guarantees that someone will be logged in and 2) still provides a way for different members to isolate their activity when using a shared device.
In the past, when someone was done browsing the web, he could sign out of the Covenant Eyes software. Because signing out would disable the connection to the internet, that condition would force the next person using the device to sign in with his own Covenant Eyes username. The downside of the Sign In/Out option occurred if/when the software didn't actually require someone to sign in; he could browse the internet with no accountability.Some people love it, some people don't. Please feel to chime in with feedback or suggestions!
