Don’t bother

This app has been nothing but a headache. I pay 4.99 a month for this app and every time the Wi-Fi goes does I have to start all over with app. The setup takes forever. It’s impossible to find your device because everything is listed as unknown device. I have to set up and assign devices all over again at least once a month. It takes hours to find device names and then locate them by their MAC address only to have the app stop working a few weeks later. There are much better parental control apps. Won’t be using circle again.

Slows down internet speed

I set this up and, about an hour later, turned it off. It was slowing down the internet speeds in the house to the point that my wife and I had to switch over to the data plan to look anything up. Turned it off and, presto! Problem solved. I searched reviews on it and it appears that this is a common problem. Reading the complaints from the teenagers on here, however, is making me consider turning it back on again. That one child complained that mom could now see the sites he/she visited and was able to turn of internet access until her child did what he/she was told is absolutely glorious. Dear child, that’s the whole point. The fact that you are complaining about this suggests that you had issues in the first place, and that those issues correctly prompted your parents to take more control. You see, your privacy is not what’s important; keeping you safe is. If I learned that one of my kids had made these types of complains, the electronics would be gone and they would be spending their free time doing sudoku the old fashioned way; with a pencil and paper.

The app is buggy for my new phone

The app is buggy for my new phone and it is telling me to update the app even though it is on the latest but the app is very good to see what your kids are doing

Doesn’t wrok

Works fine for a few weeks then stops working. No matter what I try I can never fix the issue. Uninstall. Reinstall. Restart. Still doesn’t work. For the cost m, you think it would be a little better. But nope. What a joke.

No history of visited and filtered websites

This app used to show the histories of visited and filtered websites but for the past one year stopped showing the histories. I have reinstalled and restarted the app but the problem continues. I don’t recommend this app whatsoever.

Should not be 4+

This is an adult app and should be rated as such. Kids could download and override.

Best App with some major issues

I have been using this 0paid App for 2 years and it’s worth. However, one fine day the contents will disappear and you need to set it again. It happen with me 3 times in 2 year and it will be disaster if you are controlling it via outside network. They should maintain their data in cloud so that recovery is easy.

Not working anymore

Was working great, now it says can’t find active subscription, I subscribed again, got charges twice and still does not allow me to use the premium features. Wish I could continue to use it, I loved it!

More filters needed

I would like to allow traffic to Amazon echo devices but filter/block traffic to Amazon Prime Video. How do I do that? How do I block Xbox traffic and specifically Fortnite gaming? How do I block traffic to Peacock TV? Nervous Dad with teenage kids.
