various questions

  • Question
  • Updated 2 months ago
Does CE record and share all web browsing activity, or by category? For example, will my accountability partner see a strange topic I was researching online, or just if I hit any porn related sites?

Does it block sites, or just inform the accountability partner of which sites I visited?

Will my accountability partner be notified if I delete the app from my phone?

Can I find an accountability partner online in the CE community or something? I don't have anyone in offline that I would be comfortable with.

Jed,

I appreciate your interest!

Once upon a time, CE would record all URLs/links that a device would make. The complete record of those links would be compiled in the Detailed Browsing Log, and a summarized version would be emailed to the partner(s). But the times have changed.

Accounts created before March 5, 2019 still have access to that service, Internet Accountability. But since that day we have only offered our new service, Screen AccountabilityTM. It uses random screenshots, on-board blurring of images, and advanced artificial intelligence to provide modern accountability. For additional details, including information about blocking, check out the Screen AccountabilityTM FAQ.

Nowadays, the report that is sent to your partner (ally) includes blurred images. One section is for Concerning Images and the other section is Other Screenshots (a random selection of non-concerning images). The only time links will appear is when an iPhone®/iPad® is being used. With this information, your ally should get a sense of how things are going for you. For additional details, please read Understanding the Screen Accountability Report.

Notifications about uninstalling will be sent from an AndroidTM phone. We do not have that capability with the Covenant Eyes® app for an iPhone®; however there is a way to disable the ability to uninstall any app.

We don't match up allies and we strongly encourage face-to-face context for that ally relationship. You could check out a local support group, like Pure Desire, as a way to find a potential partner for the fight. Typically, everyone that attends understands both the struggle and the need for discretion. An online alternative would be NoFap.

I wish you success on your journey,

Robert
