Not worth it

1
Most routers have this limited capacity already built in. Not Worth subscription
By Anbrockmeier

Netgear devices don’t support.

1
If you paid for the subscription on a Netgear router, you are out of money chump. I spent over 6 hrs with their support or debugging on my own, no luck. Over 6 months after payment Apple Cs can’t help. @Apple if you are seeing this users are not getting the service they paid for.

Uncategorized and schedule

Need to be able to block ALL categories including uncategorized. IP ADDRESSES in numerical form seem to get an uncategorized designation Making them unblockable. We also need the ability to block individual sites on a schedule

Not worth $50/year

1
Controls are purely based on device so no way to lock down a family computer for the kids while keeping access for the adults. And 90% of the devices in the list just show up as “unknown device” with no way to get more information. So unless I’m going one by one and blocking each device until I find what lost connection I can’t actually figure out what is what or who it belongs to. Service is barely more useful or easier than just setting up stuff in a hosts file.

Good app if you can prevent the hack trick

I’ve use this app for more than half year, absolutely love it. I also recommend to other parents. Until recently my kids got the tricks from internet to bypass circle. Now the app is useless, they can do whatever they want. Please fix the bug, I still want to use this. I believe they use command line to bypass circle.

Awful App

1
Issue#1. My 17 year old has figured out how to turn off this app. He has figured out some way to get in thru a “back door” and disable the parental controls. Issue #2. I’ve had to reset my router a few times and this app doesn’t recognize that I already spent $49.99. I am just going to give up. Seriously, don’t waste your money, don’t waste your time.

Crashed and block my phone

1
First time running it and got stuck with allow location option. Didn’t let me out of it. Can’t even exit the app. Must use HARD RESET to get out.

Useless now with the latest update

3
I don’t know what the crap happened to the app but ever since Circle decided to boot older generations off, I cannot get the app the function on our Netgear. The settings page boots me right out of the app every dang time. I deleted the app and reinstalled the app, still useless. Now I cannot get back into the app. The pin has not changed since we set this Orbi up 6 months. When I try to log back into Circle - 20 times in a row it says, ‘wrong pin try again.” After fighting with the app for 2 weeks, it finally took the same dang pin after telling me 5 times, ‘wrong pin.’ Now, back to getting to the settings page.NOPE, still boots me off. Judas, fix your app!!!! Side note: if you’re a teen on here complaining that you cannot do school work or ‘I don’t know what I am allowed to do - go back to the mirror. The issue with you teenagers is we give you an inch and take a dang MILE. Abuse the situation and game 10 hours and wonder why people like me who don’t have children have to put up with other peoples kids not managing their time appropriately. Go kick rocks outside for a change.

Complicated

1
Very tough to use. Nice filter but unnecessary and not seamless.
By NYRemIN

Great until the app stopped working away from home

1
We have Circle on our Netgear router. It has worked great for a couple of years. I even upgraded to premium a month ago and I like the options with the upgrade. The only problem is that I can no longer get the app to load when I am away from home. If I am at home where my network is, the app loads fine. As soon as I leave, my app says it can’t find my circle. This is very inconvenient as I can no longer make changes to the settings or give rewards when I am away from home. If I can’t figure out how to solve this problem, I will cancel my premium service and find another option for parental contros. ☹️
