From a kids perspective this is the worst app ever. It turns off with no warning. I have almost taken a sledgehammer to it multiple times. Thanks to this addition to my family my mood has been significantly lowered and I love to get out of the house just to escape the circle.
So, my mom got this app, and now she is a total helicopter parent. I totally understand why this has such bad ratings, because it’s trash and stupid, plus it invades my privacy. My life used to be so easy until my mom found this app. At least my dad doesn’t use it nearly as often as my mom. Anyways, my point is, this app should NOT exist and I feel bad for every kid who has a parent with this app. Also, why did you drag Disney into this? I feel bad for them! 🙄
If the difficult setup is any indication of my future with the promising on paper device, we won’t have a future together. I have set up many “smart home” technology gadgets but never encountered such a finicky device- and I really struggled setting up security cameras on the edge of a dead zone. Low ratings on both the device and the app indicate I’m not the only one having issues. I’ll go back to the old fashioned yelling and screaming. Hopefully a more effective product is release soon!
The filter for kids and ability to pause their internet is worth it alone. ‘Nuff said.
It’s a simple good App that works well for younger kids, but as soon as they get their own devices and know how to download the App, they can reset on their own. Parents should be the only ones to control the App and the App should ask the password when kids change the time schedules.
When I purchased the $300+ Netgear Orbi, I assumed the Circle parental controls were included. I thought the subscription was for outside-the-home controls only. Extremely irritated to find out I need to shell out $$ for another subscription service when other mesh WiFi options have these controls built in.
Very glitchy for a premium product.
The app does not prevent what ever is filtered from being used.

Has been working pretty well for month with a few hiccups. The past week I have been unable to log in reliably and the app seems to have changed a few times etc would give it five if it was more reliable
