By Ron Benvenisti: Android – Major Update. We are very excited to tell you that CE is putting the finishing touches on a massive overhaul of the Android app. The new app will be able to monitor all internet activity (not just the default browser), includes many new features and is on the way to including filtering. This is definitely something that has been long in coming – but will hopefully have been worth the wait!
For the brave and adventurous – you can register for the beta version here of the new Android at the Covenant Eyes site here: http://bit.ly/1yAA66U
The stable version is expected to be released imminently.
New Versions of Covenant Eyes Software (Web Chaver)
If you haven’t updated your software recently, we recommend updating to the latest version of the CE software. The CE development team has been working feverishly at improving the stability and accuracy of the software monitoring and filtering. The newest version has improved compatibility with other programs as well.
To check if you can use an update – click on the CE icon on your PC or Mac and click “Check for updates”. If prompted to update, you can go directly to our download page here.
Updates to the iOS app
The iOS app has continued to improve with new features and stability. It also has a better look-and-feel. Although we would all love to use the Safari browser, until Apple lets that happen, the CE app has definitely made great strides in being a good solid replacement for Safari.
We also want to remind you that Apple has added more robust parental controls and filtering to iOS8. This is a worthwhile feature to use in tandem with WebChaver. You can access this from the Settings-General.
Yishmoreini for your shul!
Yishmoreini has joined forces with WebChaver to offer your shul a unique group plan. You can sign up your shul or other group for Yishmoreini, to allow all members the privacy and anonymity they need while still knowing that their Rav or mentor will see any reports deemed questionable. The reports are “hand-sifted” anonymously, to prevent any “false positives”. Then and only then are questionable reports sent to the Rav or group administrator.
Have your shul join today!
