Filtering Now Available in Covenant Eyes for iPhone – The Wired Homeschool

The latest release of Covenant Eyes for iPhone now support content filtering. From Breaking Free Blog:

Covenant Eyes Internet Browser FilterThe app was released in the winter of 2009 as an accountability tool: monitoring all websites visited through the browser app and sending a regular Internet report to “Accountability Partners” you choose (such as a parent, spouse, or friend).

Choose what you want the browser app to do. Do you want it just to monitor Internet activity? Buy just the Accountability service. Do you want it to block websites? Buy just the Filtering service. Or buy both if you want both services.

Buy multiple usernames and choose different services for people who use your devices. Have one username that just filters, another that just monitors, another that does both. It’s entirely up to you.
