  • Parental settings

    By Mrs.MaeMay
    I’ve set them but the kids can still access YouTube which was blocked and still use WiFi during the times it is set to be on pause/unavailable.
  • Lost connection quickly to router

    By my family team
    Bought a NetGear router and set up this Circle app. I was excited that it would cover devices for family (phones, laptop, computer) as well as the tv! However less than a week use it lost connection and asked to be set up again and again. Not the parental coverage I’m looking for. I was surprised as Circle works with Disney - a family friendly brand! I’ll probably try something else. I would like it to be reliable at all times and not worry about what my kids might be exposed to. Keep Working on it NetGear and Circle.
  • It’s disappointing

    By wenderhg
    I got network failures multiple times but the worst thing is that it has the worst device recognition I’ve ever seen. I have many devices in the network and most of them are as unknown or just Apple device which makes pretty hard to assign device to profiles. I’m very disappointed with all this. I though I would lost any of the parent controls I have with xFinity by getting a Orbi but Circle is not doing the work and on top of that it asks for subscription.

    ewwwwwww i hate this dumb app!
  • Do not get this app for teenagers

    By sam simps
    This app is intended for children who’s parents believe that their is always something else to do besides video games and t.v. The only reason why you should get this app is for you and your kids to have an unhealthy relationship. Ever since my dad has had the their has been hundreds and mean hundred of arguments leaving a lasting impact on how we interact. Especially now a days when kids spend most of their time online talking with their friends it truly is not the best option for your teens. I often feel left out and depressed when my circle gets in the way off hanging out over discord. Also youtube doesn’t work if you have a child or teen setting filter. Over all if your reading this you must be a mislead parent considering having this put on your child’s device or your simply just reading through all the review. Some times I think about a better more trusting relationship with my parents. Last I also want to mention that this system also slows down the WiFi by about 20 to 30 percent depending on why router you have. Thank you for reading.

  • RE: Adding to another Device

    By 1s@d6url
    I was hoping I can share the app on my husbands device. It had worked at one point but now it does not seem to work even though I am correct in putting user name, password & pin. Please let me know if and when this becomes possible, thank you.
  • Horrible in game purchasing

    By ZDuffy
    I got the app all setup with my child’s devices, and then randomly the app decides I haven’t paid for premium when I’m fact I have. I would be more than willing to pay monthly for the app if it actually allowed me the premium features I paid for.
  • It use to work

    By CrackMackin
    This app was really cool for about 5 days and then it quit working altogether.
  • Three sons and plenty of control

    By "nothing to it"
    We love the Circle by Disney for being able to see and control what our children do on the internet. Being able to control the amount of time and when the internet is used to the specific user is totally awesome for us as parents!
