Finally parental controls that works. Runs on my Netgear router, controlled and set up on my phone. Lots of setup initially but easy going from there on out. Kids don't like getting cut off at night but respect that it may be a good idea. The filtering of content across devices is the best I've ever seen. And it works very well although it cost is a few bucks a month.
New update, no longer works!
Really great idea, shocking devices implementation. Sorry but how the hexk do I know what a liteon device or a wave azure device is, or even a Samsung device given there's 4 in our house. Or the 4 dlink devices which is which? Why not use the friendly names off the router (as it's firmware dependant) or show the IP address too that way we can tell who is who. 3 of my laptops use the same wifi chipset and all show up the same. Not helpful. At the moment the only device I can truly identify is my own phone, by turning Wi-Fi off. Very poor implementation. I won't be using it and won't be paying for premium. Love (not) the way we now have to buy everything as a service at double the price. No way. It's not worth $20 in total let alone $5 a month.
Design flaw. We went out for the evening, and teenager just unplugged it and moved it. No alert from circle that my network was no longer protected. Fortunately he slipped up and we got home sooner than he expected and we caught him.
Great App, have 4 kids all with 3 wifi connected devices each, its usually a pain to wifi block them all at bedtime (kids are sneaky) but with Circle I can group block them and have their wifi paused/re-enabled at different times. Been using it for a week with zero problems so far. I have it set up with my Netgear Nighthawk Router. Also can monitor and parental control websites they visit. Well happy with this App.
I have been using Circle for about two weeks now and performance has been spotty. One evening it looked to be working but it was not. Bedtime did not happen. Other times I open the app and it takes a long time to load or does not load at all. When it works it is great.
In this update, we’re excited to bring you two new Circle Connections, as well as some bug fixes and improvements. Learn all about our Assistant and Automation Connections at meetcircle.com/connections
