Because CE on iOS makes use of google ratings for YouTube content, my ability to watch a vast number of conservative or independent political channels has been ended. It is very frustrating to not be able to watch videos that I know are safe because googles algorithms flag non-progressive voices as highly mature.

I think the problem (by your own description) is with Google then, not CE...

Larry,

Sorry for the frustration, but you and Steel are right. As a way to reduce inappropriate YouTube content, Covenant Eyes® for iOS does enforce YouTube's Restricted Mode. However, as you've seen, what Youtube deems "worthy" of restriction is entirely up to them.

I don't know if public push back will have much impact on the way YouTube classifies things, because there have been plenty of complaints. But CE will be following this issue and will adapt if necessary.

Robert, is YouTube restricted mode enforced for accountability only, or for accounts with filtering? On iOS.

Chance,

YouTube's restricted mode is enforced on both Android and iOS devices, regardless of the Covenant Eyes® account/username settings.
