Using the Circle with Disney Parental Control Device from Circle, it is possible to manage the connectivity of all your home's devices, regardless of whether they use a wired or wireless connection. Using the Circle, parents can filter content, limit screen time, and set a bedtime for every device in the home, including laptops, tablets, desktop computers, streaming boxes, game consoles, smartphones, smart home devices, iPods, Smart TVs, and more.

The Circle isn't a router, but pairs with yours using either 10/100 Fast Ethernet connectivity or 2.4 GHz 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi to manage all website requests from all the devices in a home. Using the Circle app, families can create individual profiles for each user, ensuring that each person has an experience designed just for them. Once each account has been configured, each user's settings will kick in. If a request is allowed, all the web traffic goes directly from the home network to the device. However, please bear in mind that guest networks and sub-networks of your home Wi-Fi are not managed.

It is also possible to set daily time limits for each user on any app, platform, or category. Using Time Limits, you can customize how much time is spent on any given platform, such as Facebook or Netflix, and even set a total online time for the day. Additionally, using BedTime, each device can be set to disconnect from and reconnect to the Internet at defined times. For more information on network use, Insights makes it possible to see where everyone spends their time online and organizes this information by platform, category, and website for each user's total time spent online and where, either by the day, week, or month.

Using the Filter function, individual filter levels may be set for each family member. Circle has four preset age levels and allows for further customization by platform, app, and category. Choose a level that matches each family member's age and interests, helping to filter out inappropriate content.

If you've ever struggled with people choosing Internet time over family time, the Circle helps to resolve this using its pause button. Whether its dinner time or "just because" time, Internet connectivity can be put on hold, disabling access to a specific device, a specific individual, or the entire house.

The Circle operates using a 100-240V power supply. In the case of a power outage, or if it needs to be moved around, it can also be operated using an integrated rechargeable Lithium-ion battery. If the Circle is turned off, the admins will receive a notification. Included is an Ethernet cable, a micro-USB cable, and a USB power adapter.

General Features

Set Time Limits

Track Time Across Devices
Whether it's on a tablet or a smartphone, Circle keeps track of how long your kids spend online whenever a time limit is set. Circle will add up the time between each device so that 1 hour actually means 1 hour
Popular Apps and Platforms
Circle puts popular platforms and apps front and center for setting time limits. Whether your kids visit the Facebook app or on the web, all activity counts as "Facebook" time
And Categories Too
Games. Social Media. Blogs. Whatever your family is into, Circle lets you set a time limit for entire categories
Keep Up with Notifications
Receive notifications when a time limit is reached on a particular app or category
Kids Can Keep Track
Circle also enables kids to be able to view their time limits via MyCircle, so they always know how much time they have left

Set a BedTime

Set It and Forget It
Set a BedTime for each member of your family, causing the devices that belong to that family member to temporarily disconnect from the Internet
Different Kids, Different BedTime
Each kid in your home, even the parents, can have a different BedTime
Give a Little Reminder
When the kids try and surf on the web during BedTime, they are redirected to their MyCircle page and reminded gently to go to bed
Rise and Shine, Devices
Devices reconnect to the Internet in the morning at the preset "awake" time

Filter Content

Easy Age Presets
Circle offers parents the option of four general filter age levels. These filters come defaulted with settings designed for that age group, but can be easily and quickly customized
Apps & Platforms
Circle also allows you to easily filter popular apps and platforms. Each filter level defaults to the most popular ones for that age group
A Web for Each Age
Circle takes a massive database of websites and fits them into easy-to-understand categories. Feel free to customize filter levels to meet each kid's needs
Kid Safe
For the stuff that your kids should never see, like mature and explicit content, Circle has you covered. When a profile is set to anything but "Adult", the bad stuff doesn't even show up as an option to enable and is handily filtered by Circle
Internet à la Carte
Want to go further? Circle allows you to set custom filters for individual sites. You can either add it to the filter list, or allow it even when the category is turned off
Block Ads
Yes, Circle can block ads. Enable "Ad Blocking" in your filter settings and Circle will block almost any ad from ever making it onto any of your devices
A Safer Kind of Search
Circle can default to safe search on Google, filtering out inappropriate sites and images from search results

Pause the Internet

It's Chore Time!
Every family member has their own pause button for them and their devices. Give your kids a distraction-free chore time or homework time by simply pressing the pause button. It's also just as easy to unpause when you want them to reconnect
It's Dinner Time!
Getting everyone to the dinner table or outside for some family play can be challenging when everyone has their own device. Press pause on the home screen and quickly receive everyone's attention
Even Pause By Device
Sometimes you only need to pause one device for a little bit, be it the family computer or an Apple TV. Now you can pause any device at any time
Heads Up, You're Now Paused
Circle even gives you reminders for which user is paused and who's not

Devices

Every Device Managed
If it's connected to your Wi-Fi, Circle sees it and allows you to manage it. Whether it's a laptop, tablet, or Smart TV, Circle has you covered without any software needed on any of those devices
Devices the Entire Home Enjoys
Some devices are shared by everyone in the home. Circle has a "Home" profile that lets you set up basic controls that apply to everyone on these devices
Your Devices, Your Settings
Most devices belong to someone in the home. Mom's phone, dad's laptop, or one of the kids' iPods. Time Limits, BedTime, and Filter settings set for a family member apply to all their devices
Smart Home Devices
Many devices on a network don't ever need to be managed by Circle, such as your Nest Thermostat or a smart sprinkler system. Circle automatically un-manages these devices so you don't have to bother
New Devices
Once you've set up Circle, you'll receive a notification anytime a new device pops up. The new device will fall into the "Home" profile for you to choose how you want to manage it
Configure to Your Liking
Every device has its own settings menu where you can assign it to someone, choose to unmanage it, or even change its name to something fun

Tech Features

Smart
Pairs wirelessly with your router with instant device recognition. No software per device or monthly subscription required. No complicated series of steps involved. Just an iOS app and that's it
Secure
Circle is incredibly secure. It uses end-to-end encryption for your data so it's safe. Circle also has a battery inside so it can't just be turned off by one of your kids
ARP Spoofing
Circle uses ARP spoofing to automatically monitor all traffic on the home network, without the need for any special configuration
Privacy
One unique aspect of Circle is that your data lives on the device. That means that all your surfing history for your family stays stored on your Circle and isn't up in the cloud somewhere. Circle doesn't sell this data, mine it, or even access it except to relay it to your iOS app. Circle is in full compliance with COPPA standards. It's your data and should belong to you
How It Works
Circle isn't a router, but does pair wirelessly with yours. Circle is designed to work with a single network and manage all the website requests from all the devices in the home. From there, each user's settings kick in. If a request is allowed, all the web traffic goes directly from the home Wi-Fi to the device. Guest networks and subnetworks of your home Wi-Fi are not additionally managed
60 Mb/s or Faster
Need a fast connection? Use Circle's Ethernet cable to plug directly into your home router. That way, Circle can work without slowing things down
Built with Teens in Mind
Worried about Circle being unplugged? Not to worry, as Circle has a battery. Couldn't they just remove it from the home, or just plain turn it off? Not without you getting a notification right away
