Where do I even start?
Of course there are going to be thousands of kids on here complaining about the circle. I am a junior, and I personally hate the circle, but that’s not why I am here. If you hate the circle you should talk to your parents about it. I’m here because circle go is a product not ready to be sold to the public. the idea is great on paper but it really doesn’t work. I am often blocked at random intervals during the day. Even calls and iMessage are barely functional after bedtimes. This is a huge problem because it is potentially dangerous. Imagine being out late at night and you need to get a hold of your parents immediately. With the circle go, that isn’t an option. I could call, but that isn’t always a convenient option! iMessage is very skippy and can’t be trusted to get an important message out.
Parents, the circle go is super easy to circumvent. I found out how not 30 seconds after having the app installed. For the sake of my fellow kids under the control of the tyrant circle, I’m not going to list the process here, but it’s quite easy. It’s also supposed to send a notification to your parents when you circumvent the circle, but it doesn’t as long as you don’t go over any time limits whilst disconnected.
Over all, the circle is horrible beyond reason, but it also makes sense. Your parents love and care about you and don’t want you to misuse the internet. But circle go needs to be worked on and sold when it is a complete product.
Hey there! Thanks for your review. Circle Go can't impact iMessage or calling however. It works to augment network traffic, and doesn't interfere with those types of connections you've mentioned. You're also misinformed about how our notifications work. We'd love to chat with your parents however. Have them email us at firstname.lastname@example.org?
From a parent after a year
I have 3 kids with iPhones. I pay the monthly fee for circle go. I also changed from Comcast to AT&T broadband. Same experience. Circle has a really big issue when transitioning networks. When you leave your house and go from WiFi to data, roll the dice. Have to reboot the router? Good luck with circle working for the next hour. My kids have all kinds of issues with instagram, Snapchat, and even App Store. When it is during the day and within time limits it locks them out of these apps randomly. I bought the app to limit amount of time on these devices and establish bed time. The problem is it blocks apps with no reason. Kids hate this app but when they are within time limits and it doesn’t work , we are all mad. I can be standing next to the router and can’t get on the circle management app. Frustrating. I spend an hour a week troubleshooting why someone can’t get an app to work. The VPN is a flawed solution.

How Did It Go From Bad To Worse?
Im going to be very blunt and critical of this app because Circle is just about the worst thing ever. This app is 100% absolute trash. It doesn't work now, I don't think it ever will. Lets start with the fact the actual app very rarely displays your BedTime, your time online or anything else important. Whenever anything does happen to load, its peppered with Disney propaganda. We all know that if Circle hadn't gotten paid by Disney they would have gotten nowhere. Second of all, the notifications are a mess and a half as well. They only alert you when you have 15 minutes left on a certain platform, and I have had experiences where Circle will alert you that you have 15 minutes left, and then in 10 minutes it will tell you that you have reached your time limit. This app alone is a scam and I hope everyone out there has the decency to stay away from it.
