Hi, Is CE no longer compatible with Airdroid? Since my Ally doesn't live near me, he controls the entry of the App Blocking password via Airdroid. (Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be an easier way to block apps, which I've suggested several times.) When I try to start the remote control via Airdroid, CE asks for the screen recording again and forces Airdroid to close. My version is 5.17.3 and I use Android 11 with Samsung Galaxy A52. Thank You for your answer!

Where am I?

Hello Simeon. 

Thanks for your question. I am sorry to hear about the issue you seem to be having with Airdroid. Airdroid appears to have a screen sharing or casting component to its service. While Covenant Eyes is installed on an Android device we utilize the screen casting of the device and other apps cannot. As such, any app that normally uses screen sharing will not be able to use it while we are installed. I do apologize for that hassle. We monitor the whole device with that screen casting feature. As such it is designed to reassert itself if ever disabled - either manually or automatically by another app.  That is very likely what you are experiencing when Airdroid tries to use the screen casting feature and I am sorry about that. 

Thank you and have a great rest of your day.
