About this app

Keep kids safe and focused with the most comprehensive and easy to use parental control app for devices in home and on the go.

Circle Parental Controls App gives parents screen time control whether kids are playing their favorite online game, connecting with friends or doing schoolwork. Circle goes beyond setting Screen Time Limits and Filters with additional parental control features like Pause, History, Rewards and Bedtime. Parents can customize screen time and WiFi control based on their kids’ ages and their own family preferences, and even limit or block social media.

• Filter: Choose appropriate (or block inappropriate) content by age with web filters. Even block social media.
• Time Limits: Set daily screen time limits for popular apps and sites.
• Pause the Internet®: Make the Internet stop for every family member (or just one).

• History: Check out sites kids visited (or tried to visit) throughout the day. Or go back as far as you’d like for screen monitoring and phone monitoring.
• Usage: Get a complete picture of your family’s Internet use, across all devices
• Location: Keep track of your kids through their mobile devices. Monitor kids’ phones to keep them safe.

• Bedtime: Ensure your kids get the sleep they need. Set a bedtime for connected devices.
• Rewards: Celebrate good behavior by giving a little extra online time just for the day.
• Focus Time: Schedule distraction-free Internet time for school, homework or offline time.

Start managing your family’s online screen time today with a free trial to access all the parental control app features like WiFi blocker, app blocker and other premium parental control app and screen time control features. Circle’s WiFi manager, Internet and website blocker, and mobile device management make for the most robust screen time parental control app available.

Kids can use the Circle parental control app to keep track of their own screen time online with a personalized dashboard.

****edited-I have to uninstall/ reinstall once or twice per week...RIDICULOUS!!! I don't like that I get the circle of doom and have to uninstall and reinstall the program. That should be extremely rare, not monthly or more often. Also, it doesn't filter youtube correctly. I have to block it in 4 places on the filter page including as a custom site in order for it to block it. I am giving one star in hopes they will take this seriously. It has some good features but the issues are really annoy.

The product itself is excellent, though not for an Adroid phone out side the home wifi. In that case, the app can easily be removed from the phone. Boo. But we got something else for the phones and kept this for the devices in house. But now that the trial is over, I can't restart the subscription! I am working with customer service, but I've been escalated twice, and still no luck. I am really hoping they can fix this bug, I'd like to keep this service!

The device hasn't kept up with technology in general. The Circle device is supposed to identify the devices on my network, but it couldn't identify most of them. So I wasn't sure which devices I was working with and didn't know which settings to establish. It was such a mess. The few devices it did identify still didn't have finding and other settings working after I established them. At one point the app finally crashed and wouldn't open again. I never was able to open again.
