  • Don't Buy

    By Lhokdivad
    I have had the device for about a year and it worked relatively well. Recent updates have caused google drive and google docs to be inaccessible as well as a site our school uses to post assignments to name a few. I notified them a few weeks ago and still no solution. This is not operator error. I changed my 13 year old's setting to adult. Didn't work. I tried to allow certain sites individually. Didn't work. The only way to access the sites is to completely disable the circle device. Do not buy. As to the response below, I spoke to circle before writing this review. None of the issues the developer mentioned were the problem. Not blocking anything (which makes the device useless anyway). Even in adult mode the problem persists. They published a horrible update that ruined the device. Period. Do not buy.
  • Works like a charm

    By nathanweill
    Best thing ever invented after the internet.
  • Inconsistent tracking of hours

    By I <3 Wattpad
    This is the second time in 2 weeks I have had to restart the device including taking everyone off and putting them all back on. I don't know what is going on but I'm beyond frustrated. My daughter has been in the iPad for 2 hours and it is registering 0 hours.
  • Very Frustrating

    By stcopes
    I had to take the "Circle Go" off our devices because it was horrid. Now I think we are going to have to get rid of Circle. It's taking forever to load everything over wifi. I like the parental controls, but it shouldn't take so long to load things, buffer videos, etc.
  • A good device

    By Jjpettorino
    I am a parent of a teenager who spends entirely too much time on her devices. I've tried other apps like kidslox (which was good but not great. Circle is really easy to install and can give time limits to each app and or each category. It is a nice tool for parents to use. The MyCircle app also gives kids an app in which to monitor themselves. I have only 2 complaints. 1) the monthly subscription of $5 beyond the $90 for the device and 2) for devices like the computer it only monitors the computer as a whole not each account on the computer. So if a parent wants to use the computer they would be using the 'allotted' time given to the teenager. True you can just change it to 'uncategorized' then change it back but that is not a smooth transition. There are several areas which the company promises to improve but for my needs it works really well. I do recommend this device/app for any parent that takes an active role in their child's online life. This is in no way a parental replacement. Don't listen to the naysayers of this device/app. It is well worth the price although I would like to see a lower per month rate.
  • Stupid

    By Tucker2693
    Worst company ever. Ruins kids lives and their relationships with their parents.
  • Great app

    By Neerie
    We've used a number of different apps and filters over the years and this is by far the best. Easy to install and maintain. Great app. I can't recommend it enough.
  • Not worth the aggravation

    By Marthamel73
    With good intensions I installed this program to limit screen time from my two kids. All was well for the first week then bit by bit issues popped up. Switched permission to "Allowed" and Youtube won't work on son's iPad. "Pause" button works for my son's devices but not my daugthers. Daughter's devices suddenly doesn't recording any time whatsoever and now can spend hours on the internet (obviously her devices are not connected but show that they are). "Rewards" feature doesn't work on my son's iPad. I've re-booted both circle and the network several times, cleared cache on devices, deleted devices from the network and added them again, deleted profiles and added them again.... I've wasted more time troubleshooting than enjoying a smooth running network management system. I'm so dissappointed and won't recommend this to another parent.
  • Highly don't recommend

    By MsCHB
    It makes our internet run extremely slow and logging onto websites, like YouTube, it'll never be able to load. We've tried everything that Disney Circle recommended to do if it makes the internet run slowly but none of it has helped. We've been trying to get it work for two weeks; I'm returning it.Don't waste your time or money on this product.
  • Update made it unusable...

    By ionaNC
    Recent updates turned a decent app into an unusable one. Pausing internet now randomly works but then I can't unpause the internet for users who are paused. Download usage data times out it takes so long. I don't know what happened at Disney but you've effectively bricked a great product.
