Circle: Smart Family Controls App Reviews

  • Awful

    By joshie305
    We have the Disney circle and it is horrible. We get no time to play and it just kicks us off all the time and Disney needs to fix their thinking. Disney is supposed to be fun not turning off WiFi.
  • Ransom for protecting our kids

    By gr8.m9d
    You have to pay to much for decent parental controls. They hold you ransom for your kids internet security. $5 a month to set time limits? Are you kidding me?
  • Circle app is a scam!!

    By Bogueout have enough money you don't need to charge a monthly fee for people to use this app!! I thought what a wonderful idea a way to control my kids screen time. There was no mention of monthly fee. Get a life Disney.
  • I don’t like having to assign each device to an individual because we share some of the same devices

    By Angelle73
    Can’t we each have a login.
  • Teens

    App works great. Took a few minutes to setup the hardware and all devices have been sorted. It helped get a Birdseye picture of what was going on in our house.
  • Could use more options

    By Fredblah
    I’ve recently noticed that the online game roblox does not stop working when the time limit is reached (noticed on a laptop). Why are there no ‘0 minutes’ options for time limits? My kids need access to the internet, but the only option I have is 15 minutes or longer/unlimited. Also, it would be nice if the internet could be paused, but still have access to message and/or FaceTime when they need to communicate to parents.
  • 100 stars

    By Camslam
    I would give it 100 stars if I could. It has changed our lives for the better! No more arguing with kids about WiFi!
  • Awesome device and services

    By MaarekStorm
    This has really opened our eyes on usage for both the children (2) and our habits online. The reports are fairly detailed and setup was super easy. Device management is easy although some devices just show generic names but helped us better manage our household device network. It was amazing to see all the devices connected to the internet. We use 5 profiles and an unmanaged group for work equipment. I really think it’s a good value and we added circle go to watch the kids iPads while at the sitters house and habits. It’s a great insight into what they do. Pausing the internet is AMAZING. Kid not listening while watching videos pause the Internet and it stops. Keep in mind you need the Circle device from amazon to make this all work. It’s small and easy to setup.
  • The try not to parent challenge

    By Kevin James' biggest fan
    Don’t monitor your kids, don’t talk to them, just block them! That’s the prime parenting strategy. Give your kids the gift of no self control and misinterpretation of bad and good for the low low price of a hundred bucks plus ten a month!
  • Doesn’t work at all

    By Thegardengirl
    Won’t pause any devices which is the whole point. It says they’re paused but they’re not. As another reviewer said, I bought the nighthawk but it’s range is very weak. Very frustrating. I keep updating firmware, getting online and see that most people have the same issue. Cmon Disney.
