Where do I even start?
Of course there are going to be thousands of kids on here complaining about the circle. I am a junior, and I personally hate the circle, but that’s not why I am here. If you hate the circle you should talk to your parents about it. I’m here because circle go is a product not ready to be sold to the public. the idea is great on paper but it really doesn’t work. I am often blocked at random intervals during the day. Even calls and iMessage are barely functional after bedtimes. This is a huge problem because it is potentially dangerous. Imagine being out late at night and you need to get a hold of your parents immediately. With the circle go, that isn’t an option. I could call, but that isn’t always a convenient option! iMessage is very skippy and can’t be trusted to get an important message out.
Parents, the circle go is super easy to circumvent. I found out how not 30 seconds after having the app installed. For the sake of my fellow kids under the control of the tyrant circle, I’m not going to list the process here, but it’s quite easy. It’s also supposed to send a notification to your parents when you circumvent the circle, but it doesn’t as long as you don’t go over any time limits whilst disconnected.
Over all, the circle is horrible beyond reason, but it also makes sense. Your parents love and care about you and don’t want you to misuse the internet. But circle go needs to be worked on and sold when it is a complete product.

Hey there! Thanks for your review. Circle Go can't impact iMessage or calling however. It works to augment network traffic, and doesn't interfere with those types of connections you've mentioned. You're also misinformed about how our notifications work. We'd love to chat with your parents however. Have them email us at firstname.lastname@example.org?

Hello! Yes, I might be a 15 year old girl, but I am not here just to complain about how annoying the idea of the app is to social teens like myself. This app has such a wonderful concept, as kids and teens nowadays are becoming more and more addicted to their phones every day. It is really nice for parents like mine with multiple teens that use their free time playing games or using social media. However, this app truly just does not work. For example, It might tell my parents that I have used over 5 hours on Snapchat while I have been at school, not on my phone. This gives my parents the wrong idea about me, as they imagine I am using my phone rather than paying attention. Other times, it might say I have been on my phone for around 6 hours, but if you check the things that “I have been doing”, it will say that I have spent 4 hours on “Uncategorized Apps”. But in reality these four hours were not spent doing anything. My dad gets extremely annoyed when I have to ask him for time so that I can do homework, because I have “been on my phone all day”, while I haven’t even been on it half the time that circle has logged. If you are a parent looking for a way to limit their children’s screen time, I would not recommend this app. I do know that Apple devices IOS 11 or above (I’m pretty sure...maybe 10 or 9?) has a similar way to do this called “Screen Time”. If you are interested, I would definitely look into that.
If I could give it a lower rating, I would
I’ve been losing a lot of sleep from the Disney circle. My dad turns off the WiFi at 10:00, so if I’m working on online homework and it hits 10:00 I finish my work, or turn it in. I was working on a social studies current events when it hit 10:00. I had to turn it in by 11:59 I ended up getting a late grade while everyone else in my class got 100. I like my dad and all, but if he wants me to get good grades he should not turn off the WiFi. It also turns out I’ve been getting less sleep too. At 10:00 all I can play are games without WiFi. The only one I have on my computer is rct3. It’s a game that you can spend hours on and it only feels like you’ve been playing for 30 minutes. So I end up playing it until 1:00, I get up for school at 6:00. Whenever I go to bed i feel like I’m just closing my eyes, then opening them to see it it’s 6:00. I google why it was happening, and it said sleep loss. This has never happened to me before, and it started when my dad started shutting off my wifi. I hate it
