This app is so bad you have your time limited I’m a teen this is the stupidest app EVER.
Controlling and seriously makes me not happy. The fact that parents PAY for this is beyond rediculous. It shows how you don’t have control over your family and need an app to parent for you.
I expected more. Having used apps like Our Pact and Qustodio, I expected more. Circle feels like a half-baked abandoned app. The VPN is super slow, if your kids play games, they won’t be happy. The circle appliance is difficult to get working on your network. I’m an IT guy and I gave up. This is going in the trash. Waste of $120. Save the box people...
It is so horrible I hate it because it limpets time and I some times I am watchina show and it would shut off I hat it I would give a 1 out is a 100000
so frustrating. i set the bedtime to 10:30pm but my kids with their Chromebook and Windows can still watch youtube. im very frustrated for a month now. i never had any issues with Gen 1. its a complete garbage now.
This app has caused me complete rage, cause of my parents making themselves waste 300 bucks on a piece of junk (could of gone to college savings) that could of been replaced with screen time (A completely free thing IN YOUR SETTINGS.) It does no more good than screen time does, and half the time it just causes to go to 3g WiFi speed. And the other half it actually does it’s job. But yeah whatever I’m just a teenager and no one really would respond back but yes I’m just annoyed and expressing my opinion. From, your average teenager that just wants to live it’s life
If u get this app u wasted your money save it for your children’s future. a trust me I know.
Not only does this app allow one to restrict social media or entertainment from their kids device but it also enables them to turn off their internet for days on end. They have access to all of the browsers searched and receive data on every app they open. This isn’t helping your kid it’s making them feel controlled. This isn’t an easy quick fix to getting you kid off the internet because it’s shows them that you have little to no trust and makes them feel like their every move is being watched. Parents can simply type in their child’s email and control their device for as long as they wish. Every little thing can be controlled, this isn’t beneficial it’s nonsense. Don’t jeopardize your kids relationship because you want them to spend less time on their phone, it’s not worth it.
This app has a very poor UI and is glitchy with no actual support.
Parents, before buying this machine and before you download this app you must remember that problems come from more than screens! If you think you need this, then buy it, but PLEASE remember that there are other things that define a child’s actions and personality as this will not be something that teens will like, and it will certainly not fix personal problems that you have with them, for the sake our generation, PLEASE think about this before buy the machine and app.
