About this app

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.

• 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.

I have not been able to load the app at all for at least 2 months. Uninstall, resetting password has not done anything. My circle is directly attached to the router via Ethernet so there's no router connection issue. Circle is great when it works but right now it's useless. This app has always been buggy but this is the last straw as I can't even get in. I only see a white loading screen. Totally unacceptable.

When it actually loads, it works fine, but it often takes upwards of 5 minutes to load. My biggest complaint is that when devices are being used during "focus time" it always uses up their regular time limit, even though it's not supposed to. For example, we have focus time set from 7am-12pm, with certain apps allowed. If they listen to audiobooks (which are allowed!) for 3 hours during focus time, it won't allow them to play games/watch videos during the hour I have given. It's frustrating!

Complete garbage. Paid $120 for a year subscription and the app won't even load. Used to be able to fix it by uninstalling and then reinstalling about once per week. Annoying, but at least it worked. Now it won't work at all. Just gets stuck at log on or loading the app. Based on other reviews, this is an ongoing issue. Absolutely criminal that they can charge a subscription for something that doesn't work.
