This is a tool for customizing Filter settings. It gives members the ability to block websites that they may find troublesome. If our standard domain blocker (powered by CleanBrowsing) doesn’t block troublesomesite.example and you want that site blocked, then you will be able to block troublesomesite.example through the member’s Custom Website List.
Who is able to use it?
All members that are subscribed to our Filtering service have their own Custom Website List. Each member can add websites to his own Custom Website List to be blocked. However, as a safety feature, only Filter Guardians can remove blocked website from the Custom Website List.
What version of Covenant Eyes is needed?

How do I use the Custom Website List?
Sign into My Account and select the member you’ll be serving.
Tap the “Settings” option for that member.
On the Settings screen, tap the “Custom Website List” option
Enter the website you wish to block into the form and click the red “Block” button.
A confirmation message will appear and you’ll see the site on your Custom Website List labeled as a blocked site.
How much does it cost?
If you are paying for Filtering – nothing! Custom blocking is already part of your plan. You simply need to make sure that Filtering is turned on for your username.
If you are not paying for the Filter service, adding that feature will cost $1.50/member/month.
