Accountable2You for iOS works by offering a customized browser that is designed to take the place of Safari. Because Apple does not allow applications to monitor each other, it is currently not possible to monitor the entire device. The only activity that can be monitored is the web browsing activity that occurs inside of the Accountable2You browser. Monitored activity is then rated for content and published to your Accountable2You report, where it is then sent to any accountability partners that you have setup to receive reports for that device.
Our guided VPN setup allows Accountable2You to monitor apps on your devices outside the Accountable2You web browser app. For example, if you want to use Safari as your web browsing app and monitor that activity, you can enable the VPN to do that and the activity from that app will be included in reports to your accountability partners. Partners will also be notified if the VPN is disabled.
Note: Some apps, such as Netflix, HULU and Amazon Video may not work while using the VPN.
The first step is to install the app onto your iOS device. This is done by simply finding Accountable2You in the App Store and installing from there. Upon successful installation, you will be prompted to assign one or more accountability partners for that device.
Because Apple does not allow monitoring of the entire device and it is essential that the Accountable2You browser be used, we strongly recommend using Apple’s built-in Restrictions feature to disable Safari, and also to disable the downloading of new applications. This helps to ensure a strong accountability solution for your iOS device.
This completes the setup process and you can proceed to use the Accountable2You browser to surf the web with the comfort of knowing that Accountable2You is monitoring all of your web activity.Download
