  • Honestly crappy.

    By CDuplex
    I’m a teenager, but hear me out. There is no use for this, except building mistrust between people. This device is a horrible excuse for attempted remote parenting for the “tech world” I’ve happened to program a similar app, that can ARP spoof devices off a local network - without a stupid Circle device. It works perfectly and with similar function to Circle. There is a hack that can knock the Circle off the network, but when I brought it up to customer support, I got this response. (07:40:27 PM) name hidden: I'm unable to speak with you anymore about the Circle device. Is there anything else I can help you with today?
  • Filtering for new app content

    By ACK801
    When will you add filtering for Amazon Prime Video, Peacock TV? I tried the Amazon filtering currently available and this is also blocking Amazon echo devices to connect to Amazon to download weather content.
  • To all the angry teenagers

    Get over it. Your parents are responsible not only for you, but anything elicit you may do on the internet. If you really need that much freedom, get a job and start your own household.
  • Not so good

    By DinDude
    It works, if it works. It randomly stops working. Following steps of restarting router, deteling app, restarting phone, all those doesn’t seem to work. Only thing works is wait. It suddenly starts working. But you will loose time and value able info.
  • Good, but not great

    By drSpockwa
    I installed and use this app as part of my Orbi mesh wifi purchase. It’s easy to use. But device discovery is not as good as the Netgear Orbi management. This app should provide more information about devices that are discovered, so I can put them in the proper profile.
  • Do not recommend

    By Teal_Llamacorn
    Horrible had absolutely awful time setting it up on my phone and figuring how to work it my kids kept on unplugging it no matter what I did. Do not recommend just use screen time on iPhone instead would give zero stars if I could.
  • Stopped working

    By bob@8729037168
    I paid for a year, replaced iPhone and the app stopped working. I clicked that I was the admin and send new pin, which game me an error message. Circle tells me to call Netgear, Netgear places me on hold. I have spent hours on the phone this week and now just want a refund. Now I have to find out how to get a refund for a purchase a few months ago. What a waste and loss of $49.99
  • Adult filter is absurdly restrictive - I have to allow!

    By dan-seattle
    For some reason, the adult filter setting in Circle is strangely excessive. Here are an example of the sites that are blocked when I have Explicit NOT allowed. There are the most family friendly you can get: (family friendly drama shows) TheChosen.TV (this is a Jesus show!) (a Christian camp) (Seattle art museum)
  • Blatant subscription fees

    By PanicMoose
    I get when an app needs a subscription because there’s an ongoing cost to providing the service, Eg cloud storage. But the premium subscription for this app is exorbitant considering there’s no ongoing cost to providing the service. Premium features should be a one time charge for an app like this, not another monthly fee!!
  • Circle is trashy and terrible

    By ok circle is not good
    Circle won’t do anything, it will make a kid more mad. This is why circle is bull crap. When you install circle on a device you have an option to manage time on a device or limit apps and stuff. Circle is not meant for time usage because, when a kid uses their devices and turns it off while using internet their time limit can run up. It’s only meant for limiting certain apps. It also slows down internet speed very BADLY. You also have to pay money for this stupid time limit app. It is dog water!
