Ratings and Reviews
Change: this new product is terrible. VPN used for Circle Go in new iteration fails nonstop and drives my kids nuts and therefore me nuts. Circle has been unable to fix and a ticket has been open for a month without resolution. If you are using the old product DO NOT SWITCH to the new one. It is still in ALPHA level status.
I was an early adopter of the original Circle device and of Circle Go. It disappointed me when I was notified Circle Go signups we’re suspended because I figured that meant it was end of life. The new product is undersold by marketing. It moves the VPN protecting my kids devices from being routed through my HOME network and crushing my home speeds to a REAL VPN network which is worth every penny. The new Circle Go equivalent isn’t even tied to the Ciircle device anymore!
New service is quick and easy and basically the new device is free with 12 months of free VPN service x $10/month. Great job Circle.
New app is a bit wonky but I’m sure it will be fixed quickly.

Hi Cschmelz: Thanks for feedback here. I know that our team is working to resolve the issue you are seeing, and to do so as quickly as possible. We've not seen anything like this from other users and are not able to reproduce something like it in-house. I do want to keep digging in if possible. If you'd kindly respond to our email that would be appreciated! There is likely something very unique about your situation and if we can resolve that I'd love to! Otherwise, we have already refunded your purchase and I do hope you are enjoying the other features Circle brings to your home. -- John L. -- Technical Account Manager -- Circle Support
Could use some refinement.

Hi there Coocoo Froggy -- Glad to hear that our team was able to assist here. Perhaps you could update your review for us with more info? - John L. - Technical Account Manager - Circle Support - firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ve been a user of Disney Circle for several years - decided to upgrade for presumably better functionality when not on home WiFi and better WiFi speeds for kids.
The switch has turned into an epic fail. My kids’ preferred gaming app does not work anymore and YouTube severely lags. Tried calling Tier 1 support and they had no clue.
Only way to get my kids games to work is to delete the VPN, which completely disables Circle. Waste of time and money. So mad I made the chance since Disney Circle was working fine!

Hi there SCRoyallty!
I am sorry to hear about this issue. It sounds like the VPN is having an interaction with the gaming site and YouTube. Do you have a ticket number so that I might be able to look at your issue with you? I'd love to dig in here and make sure your issue is escalated. If you haven't already, reply back to the ticket and let the team know you need escalated immediately to me. -- John L. - Technical Account Manager - Circle Support - Help@meetcircle.com
