Circle allows your family to manage all of your home’s connected devices with ease. With Circle, parents can now filter content and limit screen time as well as set a bedtime for every device in the home. Circle can even pause the Internet and share what kids are up to online. How it Works: Circle pairs wirelessly with your home Wi-Fi and allows you to manage every device on the network-tablet, TV, or laptop. Using an iOS or Android app, families create unique profiles for every member of the home and from there, help shape each person’s online experience. Additionally, for your kid’s mobile devices there’s Circle Go, which extends all of the settings your kid’s devices have at home with Circle to 4G LTE and any other Wi-Fi network.
Set daily time limits for each family member on any app, platform or category you want. With Time Limits you can customize how much time your kids spend on any given platform and even set a total online time for the day.
Set individual filter levels for each family member. Circle has 4 preset age levels and allows for further customization by platform, app, and category. Choose one that matches each family member’s age and interests, filtering out all inappropriate content.
Create a BedTime for each family member and their devices. Simply set a BedTime, when the devices will disconnect from the Internet, and an awake time, for when the devices will reconnect.
With the press of a button, you can Pause the Internet, disabling access to a specific device, individual, or the entire home. Circle gives you the ability to strongly suggest (wink wink) some on-the-fly family time.
Check out where your family spends their time online―by platform, category and website. With Insights, you can see the total time spent online and where, either by day, week, or month!
Give your kids a little more screen time by bumping up the daily Time Limits, extend BedTime a little bit, or disable that OffTime you set up for after school.
