  • Nice concept, fails on execution

    By Andysreviews
    Circle has nice features, pausing internet, time limits, etc. we tried it through Netgear with the paid service. Worked really well for a few days and then our WiFi network went downhill. Devices wouldn’t connect, tried to reset it and it would work for a day or so. In today’s world of smart switches and devices having to reset your WiFi’s network has an impact of a few hours to reconnect everything. I would add our network never had a problem before adding the circle feature. Good concept but definitely didn’t work for us.
  • Does not work

    By Shalamuta113346
    Subscribed to the premium service and it did not unlock the the “premium service” tools. Called Apple support could not help. Called NETGEAR support and sent me to a useless call center in India. So difficult, not worth the aggravation. Awful, awful customer service.
  • Worst thing i have ever seen

    By Best people reviews
    This thing is tearing my family apart. We can not agree on anything anymore. I wish I never heard about it
  • Works but it slows down my network

    By Ihate3putts
    I get about 110mbps download speed, when I turn this on, I get about 5-10 mbps, practically unworkable. Seems to block what it’s suppose to but couldn’t really test it out fully due to the download speed degradation it causes, had to turn it off and went back to OpenDns
  • Worst app ever

    By AK Parent
    We upgraded to circle premium primarily to filter content and track time. It did neither. Terrible and we had a completely false sense of security.
  • Dumb

    By Carol Smith7384826
    Too easy to override
  • Does not connect

    By lrd of the rng
    I just upgraded to an iPhone X max. When I try to use the app and enter the four digit passcode, it says could not connect. I can still connect on my old phone. I tried deleting the app and reinstalling it. But still same problem.
  • Doesn’t work with Netgear nighthawk ax6000

    By Rphmom59
    I was hoping to be able to get parental controls on my new nighthawk ac6000 . Disappointed.
  • Using for 1 month with moderate success

    By Klickityklack
    I think this could be great but still a lot of work needed. Works great on computer. Setting the time limit is effective but it only works for the entire device. No way to share devices with more than one person so we have to enforce time limits on the family computer manually as we have always done. We have one computer shared by adults and kids in our family. If I’m doing computer work, I pause the Circle app so it doesn’t count my time as kid-time. Also doesn’t work on our tv at all. Maybe if you only use an internet based streaming tv service. But for satellite it appears to have no ability to control use. The filter seems to work pretty good for specific sites etc.
  • I found a way out of this

    By OGmrScreech
    Attention all kids/teens getting your device locked. I found a way around this. Your parents/guardians circle has to be plugged into an outlet, if not if will slowly over time power off. This means it has to be in at an outlet. Step 1) find the location where it’s at. Step 2) the side with the plug in and light can be removed. Carefully using a flathead screwdriver or butter knife stick around the edge of the plastic slide down then up it should come lose. Step 3) take off the top (keeps all wires attached) and look for two cords streaming from a blue box (battery) into a circuit. Step 4) final step, disconnect the cord from the circuit and then push both ends together. It will look like nothing ever happened.
