Video Transcript

I’m Steve Dwire, Founder of Edify Hub. In this video, I’ll show you how to let your accountability partners see the activity on your Linux computer with Accountable2You, the software I and my family use to help keep us accountable with our internet activity.

If you’re watching this video, I assume you have already signed up with Accountable2You. If not, visit to find the videos on setting up an account for yourself, your family, or your own church, small group, or business.

To start monitoring your Linux computer, visit and click the Accountable2You button.

Log in to your account, click the Download & Install button, then click Linux.

As is typical for Linux, there are different download packages for different types of installations. I’m running Ubuntu, so I’ll download that package, but the steps are going to be pretty much the same regardless of which distribution you’re using.

Download the Accountable2You package from the installation instructions, and open it.

Install the software.

Launch Accountable2You from your application launcher.

If you still haven’t created your account, you could do it from here, but don’t forget to use the promo code EDIFYHUB (all one word) to upgrade to a 30-day free trial instead of the standard 10-day free trial. When you do, Edify Hub will also earn a commission to help us offset the cost of producing videos like this one.

Once you have your account, click this Login button.

Scroll to the bottom of the legal agreement, confirm that you still agree with the terms, and click Continue.

Enter the username and password you use to log on to Accountable2You and choose a name for this device. This name is how you’ll identify activity from this device on your reports. I’ll call this one “My Linux Computer.” And Add this PC to your Account.

If you signed in as the administrator of a Family account, you may also be asked to select which family member should be associated with activity on this computer.
