Covenant Eyes on Linux, or something close to it

This page was created because is not very helpful.

The goal of this page is to describe how to achieve a similar feature set to Covenant Eyes on Linux using Pluckeye, CleanBrowsing, and Accountable2You.

Note that the following steps describe one of the ways Pluckeye can be used to create a Covenent Eyes-ish setup. There are other ways to achieve either more restrictive or more permissive filtering (or monitoring) using just Pluckeye or Pluckeye and other browser extensions, but only one such setup is here described for simplicity.

The steps

  1. Install Chrome.
  2. Install Pluckeye.
  3. If you want permissive filtering that is similar to Covenant Eyes filtering, follow this guide.
  4. Enable the system feature in Pluckeye.
  5. Disable snaps.
  6. Setup monitoring using one or more of the following:
    1. Pluckeye native monitoring
    2. Accountable2You
    3. The monitoring offered by CleanBrowsing, Safe Surfer, OpenDNS or similar providers.
  7. Change the Pluckeye delay to 24 hours to prevent bypass.
  8. Done!
