Circle with Disney

We recommend Circle for monitoring your home’s WiFi.

Circle Parental Controls

What is Circle? It’s hardware that connects to your router to control how the wi-fi is used in your home. Circle Go is a portable version of Circle that travels with your child’s smartphone when it’s not connected to your home’s wi-fi network.

More details: “Circle pairs wirelessly with your home Wi-Fi and allows you to manage every device on your network. Using the Circle app, families can create unique profiles for each family member. From here, kids will have a connected experience that is designed just for them.”

Cost: $99 (hardware), $4.99/mo (for Circle Go)

Supported platforms: not really applicable, since it works on the router in your home. For Circle Go, it works on both iOS and Android platforms.

Suitable ages: any child that has a smartphone or tablet.

Strengths: controlling what apps are used, when they’re used, and for how long. Circle is an amazing screen time monitor. Purchase Circle today by clicking here, the image above, or the button below.

Weakness: content filtering. We explain in greater detail in our 2019 Parental Control App Review blog post, which explains how to layer Circle with CleanBrowsing DNS.
