How app locking works

After upgrading your app, or downloading it for the first time, click on the Covenant Eyes icon. You’ll see a button, “Enable App Locking.” After pressing this button, you’ll be asked to create a four-digit passcode. If you are protecting yourself on the device, we recommend you choose someone you trust to set this code for you (like your Accountability Partner). If you are protecting your kids, set this code yourself.

You’ll then come to a list of apps installed on your device. Lock all the apps you want to lock by toggling the switches to the “lock” position.

If someone tries opening a locked app, the passcode will be required.

Remember to re-lock apps you override

If you override a locked app with your four-digit passcode, the app will stay unlocked until you re-lock it in your Covenant Eyes App Lock Settings. If you don’t want it to remain unlocked, remember to re-lock it.

What apps should you lock?

You can lock down any apps you want, but we recommend locking down any apps that could serve as a back door to inappropriate content.

  • Google Play – This one is very important to lock down. By leaving this unlocked, users have complete access to any new apps from the Play store, including unmonitored browsers.
  • Any other internet apps not listed above as monitored

It is best to do a review of the apps on your device and see what each app does and what it accesses.
