Managing Screen Time and Content Has Never Been Easier

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 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.

Ratings and Reviews
This product is very easily HACKED!!!!
I do testing for Netgear, so I test products all the time! Circle app has been hacked very easily and this should not be able to happen! I don’t have any small children anymore, so I just have this product because of Netgear equipment! It constantly has to be checked on, because it always has to be reconnected! When this first came out, it worked properly for a short while. Not it’s an everyday battle to keep the program up. I think that it hasn’t been effective at all for the last eight months or so! Your firmware should be updated at least monthly or at least monitored in some way! Time for Disney to completely revamp this software, because it’s just crap now!!!!!
It doesn’t even deserve one star at this time! If it doesn’t get a revamp, and a better support team, I would be glad to change my review! I feel sorry for all the parents that need it to help control their children, as they think this product works, as they don’t know any better! Since I am a tester for Netgear, I am not allowed to talk about the products that I test (NDA)! I have already complained to Netgear, and this all falls on Disney at this time!! Yes, it can be hacked by a ten year old kid, and very easily at that!! Time to get some new people on that team!
Excellent concept but...
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.
Don’t understand the complaints
IF you know ANYTHING about a computer at all or WiFi this app is very simple. I don’t understand all the complaints people are complaining about. You locate devices by the MAC address or on the genie app IF you have Netgear. If your not sure what your blocking or not blocking simply go into the sights and check the age appropriate materials ect. This is not a baby sitter and children should not be left in a room running computers at free will anyway. We always check in on what our son is doing and when he’s done he is completely switched off until the next time. Video games are allowed to connect rarely and we monitor those as well. We don’t allow children free run on the internet in our home. And the TV is setup requiring passwords on unrated programs. Parents take responsibility and quit looking for a short cut to babysit your children. Get involved and know what’s going on great App and 5 stars to NetGear for including it in your routers.
