So helpful for keeping our teen safe!
Really appreciate the filters. The bedtimes are great and it’s such peace of mind to be able to see what the kids are doing online. It is also really helpful as parents for keeping some form of control over devices and the floodgate that is the internet! Downsides...could have more options for allowing/disallowing sites and time limits. I wish every app on their phones would be shown on circle. Also, even when the internet is paused (usually because someone is grounded), messages still come through! They can’t respond, but it doesn’t exactly feel like the internet has been taken away! Also, I’ve tried pausing other kids WiFi usage when they’ve come over and it hasn’t don’t anything (once leading to an unpleasant incident because I thought they didn’t have any connectivity 😐).
Still so much better than nothing, but lots of room for improvement!
Latest Circle Bedtime Server Crash leaves Devices invisible.
We have had Circle for less than four months, and it was used in conjunction with our new Netgear router￼ model R7960 Tri-Band. The router is amazing and the Netgear NightHawk software for iOS is terrific.￼ However the Circle app has been touch and go ever since we originally set it up. Then things got incredibly worse with the latest Circle bedtime sever crash. All settings were backed up, but upon deleting the app (during troubleshooting phase) it takes the back up with it. Upon new install and setup, no devices can be seen.￼ Chat support was mediocre. Another Circle app reinstall with the Nighthawk software proved to be futile as well. Then the final straw was a fourth time set up saving one profile locked the screen and upon re-opening of Circle app started the process all over again from the beginning. Bottom line is that this particular software won’t even recognize any one of the 12 to 15 devices in our WiFi network even though all devices work seemlessly with the very robust Netgear WiFi router. The Circle concept and collaboration with Disney and Netgear is admirable. Our experience. Not so much. Subscription canceled today. :(
They took away the Time & Bedtime Limits!!!
I’ve had Disney Circle for years now. I love it. It was great being able to shut down the internet at a certain time for bedtime. I have bought both - the Disney circle box and the Netgear with Disney circle. Both pricey but it was worth it.
However now Disney Circle realizes that they’re missing regular source of money coming in so now they drop all the people that have purchased the other Disney Circles devices and now charge a Premium version that has the time limit and bedtimes on it for $5/ a month. Now my original Disney circle box is outdated but my Netgear with Disney Circle works still. So I have lost the ability to set time limits and set bedtimes for the Internet to shut off unless I pay the extra $5 a month. It should still be included. So what’s the point in having the Disney Circle basic? I can with a regular router limit search engines to block adult websites. That’s all the basic Disney circle does now.
There are just apps you can buy for $5 a month that will do the same as Disney Circle without having to buy the $100 box.
