Managing Screen Time and Content Has Never Been Easier
- Set Time Limits for popular apps and websites
- Set individual Filter levels for each of your family members
- Reward your kids by bumping up their Time Limits, extending their BedTime, or removing an OffTime for the day

Give Your Kids a Break from Their Devices
- Set BedTimes for every family member and avoid late night surfing
- Pause the Internet for an individual family member and their devices, or the whole network with a single tap
- Use OffTimes to schedule Internet-free times throughout the day or week
Be in the Know with Every Device in Your Home
- Circle tracks Usage by Profile, not by individual device, so you can keep tabs on all your kids’ devices in one place
- Circle makes it easy to differentiate all the web-connected devices in your home

5 Minute Setup, No Joke!
There's nothing worse than getting a new gadget and then taking all day to configure and even longer to manage. Circle was designed with busy parents in mind to be super simple to set up, and even easier to manage. Geek cred not required.

Excellent concept but...

Sweetlove391

I love the ability to do all that you can with this program. For the price, I believe that the consumer should have more tedious control. I have the switches set in place and I still don’t feel in control. I would like the ability to actually view which websites and content is being viewed. I hate that I have to completely remove a device from being manned to be able to use it. I want to be able to view what my child sees from the app and block or unblock it. It feels like all or nothing with this system. Then, I can’t tell which device is which sometimes. There needs to be a better way to tell which device I’m setting up. Then, there are certain parts of sites that I’m ok with but not others. I need feature and subject blocking abilities. There are so many possibilities with this program that are untouched. When improvements are made, I would be happy to change my view. Also, if I’m paying more than $100 for the Disney circle box, the mobile service should be included. I shouldn’t have to pay more on an already expensive item. I think it’s ridiculous that I do.

Works great most of the time

For my needs circle works effectively most of the time. It is kinda buggy sometimes, especially on one of my kids’ phones with the circle go installed, but overall this has helped a ton with policing the internet overuse in my home. I really don’t care that sometimes it cuts people off early or overestimates the amount of time they’ve been doing certain things. I’d rather they’re almost never on their devices anyway. Circle go is kinda iffy and makes a lot of things not work on the network, which is kind of annoying and to be honest I’m about to get rid of it, but I understand that it in it’s infancy and they have to work within the restraints of the network and how to apps connect. Anyway, overall we are happy with it and my life has improved since installing it in my home. A lot of the complaints in the reviews are covered and explained well in the circle help and troubleshooting.

Promising, but falls short

Beachside70

I had a lot of hope for this product, especially with the involvement of Disney. Unfortunately it all fell short of great expectations...very short.

Set-up was a pain. For some reason this “PIN” they send to you didn’t work on my iPad and I couldn’t even get my iPhone to the screen to ask for it.

After a few resets of everything, I managed to get it working. All in all, it took 30 minutes to just troubleshoot and get it working. That didn’t include registration, etc.

Next, setting-up and using the app. Once again ... fell short of even a good experience. It is mediocre, at best. The functionality is limited and everything is all about subscriptions. Don’t get me wrong, I’m willing to pay for these, but not when they are still in the early days, like this app is. Granted, I know this product should be well beyond its early days! If I recall, it launched 1 1/2 years ago.

Last, the fact that in this day and age, an app like this doesn’t work on an iPad in Portrait AND Landscape mode is inexcusable. I can understand some other types of apps, but this is basic. There’s nothing in this app that would make it complicated. I would know, I build apps for a living.

Sorry Circle & Disney, this product is still far from where it should be. You could have apps on iOS to better inform users of their time up, you could have better screens. There’s no “Disney Magic” in this!
