Accountable2You is an internet accountability service that works across all your devices. The iOS app allows you to setup a VPN or use it's built-in browser to logs activity and report websites to your accountability partners. You can also enable GPS monitoring and allow selected accountability partners to view your location history.
• VPN to monitor internet activity across all your apps*
• GPS Monitoring**
• Multi-tab browsing
• Unified URL and search bar
• Share a link
• View search and browsing history
• Save an image to your photo library
• Choose your default search engine
• Set your homepage
• Scan QR Codes to open websites
• Accountability for your mobile browsing
To use this software you must have an account with Accountable2You.
* Use of the VPN will send all of your internet activity through the Accountable2You servers to be monitored. Some apps, such as Netflix, HULU, and Amazon Video may not work while using the VPN.
** GPS monitoring is off by default and must be enabled to start tracking your location. Your location is only shared with accountability partners that you select. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
- Fixed bug where iOS 10 users could not setup VPN
Ratings and Reviews
The VPN Solution is amazing
I recently re-installed this app after having had it in the past. Unfortunately, many of the issues experienced in previous versions seemed to be beyond the control of the A2Y developers, such as Apple restrictions. The new VPN solution is great, and offers exactly why I originally purchased this product in the first place. To know that all internet activity is being monitored is partially frustrating, but mostly a relief, as someone who wants to be accountable and to do what is right on the internet. Knowing that I can still use the native iPhone browser and navigate links from email and apps without hinderance is so nice. The support team is phenomenal, and Ben is always very prompt and attentive to the support requests that come his way. Truly, this is a service that can be of great benefit to anyone who is trying to maintain or recover purity in their lives. I would recommend it to anyone in such a place!
Great Solution for Accountability
Having tried a number of different tools for accountability on the iPhone and iPad, I can say A2U works the best with this new VPN tool. Although I do notice some slowed speeds at times and have run into common VPN connection issues (switching between LTE, 4G and WiFi) I think the ability for my accountability partner to see the whole device rather than just the browser is leaps beyond what has been available in the past with just browser watching. The really nice feature is the ability to easily turn off the VPN and give my partner a reason. This way, if I am having issues with Netflix, Maps, etc... I can quickly turn it off, do what I need to do and then turn it back on. My partner then knows the check in and ensure it’s back on rather than me having to sneak around and delete the app or whatever.
I look forward to future iterations as this grows and becomes a better solution!
Great when it works
I have this app on three iOS devices and it is great most of the time. Unfortunately, on my iPhone the VPN frequently gets stuck in a connecting/disconnecting cycle, rendering my WiFi and LTE inoperable. The only thing that has fixed it is to turn WiFi off and on, which doesn’t always work the first time, or to disable VPN and reenable it. It’s an inconvenience, to say the least. (Have never been able to get it to work on a Kindle Fire.)
Update Sept 16: Periodically, we still have the same issue with the VPN.
