Hello olijoel,

I'm sorry but I am a little confused as to what you are asking for. 

If you are referring to keywords that would trigger the Covenant Eyes filter please know that Covenant Eyes uses a dynamic filtering process that does not require keywords.  If you are looking for just a generic list of the most used keywords then I can't help, I don't have a list like that.

If I am completely wrong about what you need then please give me a little more information and I'll see if I can help.

Chad I already called in to support and talked with John. Thanks any ways. My question was about where in the Accountability Report I can find a list of typed keywords in search engines. That is all the keywords typed, filtered or not. John told me that it was not available, but that it was a good idea and that he will pass on to the correct department.

Great ideea, I would like it too.

It could be added in the report as a new catteogry: all words typed on the internet.

Well, it can rise problems like is not a good ideea to post all the passwords and things like that. But for sure there can be reported words used on search engines.

I am waiting to see if will be implemented.

We've had several requests for a report of search terms and we have some ideas for how we might be able to do that, but it is not work that has been prioritized at the moment. We don't keylog, so a list of all words typed on the internet is not something that I see us doing.

We do keep tabs on threads for new features/services and incorporate that into decisions on work, so please continue to chime in on this. It would also be helpful to know what you're looking for and what you're hoping to get from it, so that we have a clearer picture of what it should be.

In the interim, and I know this is going to sound redundant, if you go into the Detailed Browsing Logs and search for 'search' it will pull up all of your search results. At least, it will for Google. I haven't tried it with Yahoo or Bing.

To see the term, look at the URL and there is a '?q='. The 'q' stands for query and includes your search term. If you're running a version of Covenant Eyes that differentiates between Visited, Supporting, and Unconfirmed you may want to view only the Visited and Unconfirmed because there are a lot of background URLs that include the term search.

While it's not the best by any means, is that at all helpful?

This is not at all helpful for accountability purposes. Very sad to read hat it is not a priority for the CE team. On my Android devices I have installed Ever Accountable (EA) and run it in parallel to CE. EA provides a simple, great report. It shows the search term entered into the search engine (eg. Chrome) including Incognito searches together with details of the website visited or You Tube clip watched (shows the You tube URL reference no.) or text surrounding the image.

CE in its current reporting format is very easily bypassed. Simply type in a term, look for a You tube clip that is associated with an individual and not an adult website and it will slip under the CE radar.

The EA report overcomes this problem by showing the search term as well as the You Tube URL. This means that accountability partners can check to see what you have looked at and what you have looked for. If EA can do this for the Android platform, surely it must be possible for CE to provide a similar reporting format?

I agree that a list of terms that are being searched is a critical way to help out someone who has requested accountability.
