I hate this app. And I’ll tell you why. I’m 17 years old and I pay my own bills every month and my mom still insists that we put it on our phones, EVEN THOUGH I pay my own way. I can’t do anything, nothing loads, it kills my wifi speed, and I can’t even delete apps that take up too much space anymore. For God sakes the VPN you have to install for it makes it to where my speed on data is so slow that I can’t even clock in for work bc the app wont open. I hate this app it is a total invasion of privacy for someone paying their own way almost 100%. This company needs to go I’m sick of having my own life ran by dictatorial companies and parents that are emotionally abusive, so this doesn’t help at all. It’s got to go!
My parents installed circle to help me control screen time, but circle is terrible. Circle told me that yesterday I was on FaceTime for 35 minutes. I looked on the facetime app and last time I FaceTimed someone was 3 days ago. It’s also stupid how FaceTime counts as screen time. Also, when I’m out of screen time, if someone sends me a photo through messages, I can’t view it. All it will say is “tap to download” and will only have a loading sign. This app is terrible.
No joke tho that kid in the images looks like she’s dying inside
This app may help your kids, but this app also has lots of flaws. This app caused my WiFi to be TERRIBLE all of my family and friends have also noticed the change in our wifi. I get you need to set boundaries for your kids, but we should not be in our kids privacy and take away some of the responsibilities they have! Our kids should have to learn consequences of being on there electronics for to long. This app may also make your kids want to go behind you back, which is something we shouldn’t be teaching them to do. I think this app is good in bad, but I believe we should listen to our kids opinions. If they are bad take it away, but do not give them consequences for most of their life.
The first generation of circle I could see everything logged in to my network regardless of weather or not the app was installed on the device. I saw my Alexas, roomba PCs, TVs you name it. I could see what etching was doing and what data was being consumed and where. Gen2 required that you download an app on a device and set up. I don't want control just monitoring capabilities. So this messed me up. I had to buy box and pay for service I hate. It's not worked well. Bring back gen 1 as an option for monitoring vs control please.
I know that since I am a teen you will not actually take my opinion into account, but if you are having screen time problems in your house sit down and have a real conversation with your children with and open mind instead of giving up all trust and killing your kids social life. His app is awful because a teen should be able to have their own privacy and learn how to limit them selfs, don’t you think. I’m mad because my parents won’t let me do anything on my phone anymore. It is the middle of a pandemic people! I don’t have any social life anymore, and shocker if you want your kids mental health to get better this is only going to make it worse! We are so disconnected right now and this is NOT helping. Don’t get this app and maybe your kids won’t hate you. Thanks.
Honest it causes so many problems now I know like I’m 11 but it’s so annoying for example I tell my mom please turn on the WiFi she does but it dosent work the WiFi is still off it literally takes 3-4 try’s to get the WiFi on plus there are easy loopholes lol like using xfinity WiFi
Terrible app nobody likes it. It doesn’t send warnings when bedtimes are about to happen can be easily bypassed and can not even identify apps. Absolutely terrible!
I wanted this to work so much! My kids are doing online school and they like to play games online. When this device and app work they both work great, their games are blocked but later on their switched back on. It’s very frustrating because When I look at all the filters it shows them all blocked but my kids are playing. I called and had it fixed but yet again it failed it’s purpose!
i deleted this app a while ago, but my dad just reinstalled it. when i didn’t have the app, all my apps worked fine and had no network problems‼️ but as soon as my dad reinstalled the app, my network has been slower and crashing a lot. like example:: i was on pinterest yesterday and it worked just fine., but as soon as this app go redownloaded it just started to crash and say that i’m not connected. but i have FULL BARS !! :/
