  • Power to the Parents!

    By dboldt
    Love it. Magically the kids find other things to do when their screen time is up.
  • Circle app is a scam!!

    By Bogueout have enough money you don't need to charge a monthly fee for people to use this app!! I thought what a wonderful idea a way to control my kids screen time. There was no mention of monthly fee. Get a life Disney. Netgear Genie works great!!! I use this in place of DISNEY SCAM APP. Thanks Netgear for a wonderful and delightful product.
  • The Bad Reviews convinced me to BUY

    By JimR17
    Have had this for a few months now and finally getting around to review. I had to laugh when I scanned the reviews because I remembered that when I was looking into buying the BAD reviews by all these children complaining about it (or saying that it can be defeated by removing the app but then their parents get a notification, etc) CONVINCED me that it WORKS and does exactly what a parent wants: 1) easy filtering settings 2) ability to manually pause entire house or one person 3) works away from the house on Iphone and android with an app 4) I know if my kids uninstall or try to defeat the app and can punish them appropriately 5) we set the filtering level the same for parents as for kids - so no hypocrites here 6) bedtime is so much easier to enforce and my wife and I can see the improvement that getting the proper amount of sleep has had on our children’s overall attitude and demonstrated happiness WE LOVE THIS APP! 💕💜 and highly recommend it for all parents that want high tech tool they need to help their children manage their technology obsession! RECOMMENDED!!!
  • I hate it

    By rososki9875
    This app is retarded I would give it a zero if I could
  • Poor product

    By Grouchy old bear
    The App stopped working after 6 days, and has consistently failed upon reinstallation. Save yourself the time and money.
  • Nice App

    By Liz92085
    Able to keep devices organized. As devices are added they pop up on the list, so you know which device is being able to turn off internet and the kids have to find something else to do!!!
  • Mixed review

    By jqacolo
    Love the concept and think it works great for wi-fi. However it took about 5 minutes for my 10 year old to figure out that she can just turn off WiFi and use data. The fix around that is to add the circle go subscription. Then it takes about 10 minutes for an average kid to figure out how to get around that. Just turn off VPN Iin iPhone settings. If those things could be fixed I would give it 5 stars and recommend to others. Until those issues resolved it really has little effectiveness
  • Whoa

    By αмαи∂α
    Suddenly today my adults are being extremely limited and apps are claiming the servers are being spoofed and won’t open. Many programs are glitching. What happened?
  • Doesn’t work

    By smartass12345
    I’m 13. To all the kids out there who have to live with circle, just use cellular.
