  • Stuck in Loop

    By Coffeewiz
    Tried to install with my Orbi. Downloaded the Circle app and then the app asked to check to see if my router was compatible. It said it was then went to the next screen to ask the same question .... it will not let me advance any further. Hey developer ??? Any suggestions ???
  • App doesn’t work

    By Cap camp
    The app keeps crashing and won’t connect to the circle. If I redownload the app and sign in it crashes again and won’t connect.
  • Incompatibility

    By Trip toucan
    So I was so excited for to get this device...three routers later this device is not compatible with a long list of routers which kinda out dates and makes this system obsolete....I’m really disappointed right now. With today’s technology this should be an issue that should be able to easily be fixed quickly...we have the newer router that Spectrum just put in a couple data ago, before that we had a really suped up Netgear router which also didn’t work and another one🙄....Circle doesn’t seem to be able to keep up or doesn’t seem to have the technology to compete....😕. Hopefully they fix this ASAP😕
  • Parents you’re busted!

    By Josien67
    This sounded great, but had NO IDEA that that as soon as Circle was installed and my Teen went to a forbidden site, he’d be greeted with a message “Guess what, your non trusting parents care so little for your privacy that they are now monitoring your internet usage” Could you give parents a heads up that the child’s device being monitored will be redirected to the circle home page!!
  • Customer Service

    By c3tharris
    Directing someone to read an article in a help area is not good customer service. Even though the website stated there was a number/email or chat link I never found one. Disappointing

    At first, I thought how fantastic! I can monitor my children’s devices from one app. but all it has led to is slowing down our entire households connections, spotty connection of itself & many times I’m get notifications that it’s not connected to the internet. So what good is it? The kids can just turn off their WiFi & use their 4G to access internet & no monitoring from circle can be in place. Waste of money, time setting it up & figuring out whose device belongs to what & what setting needs to be in place all for nothing. I even tried the circle go to see if that would be better (additional $5 per month) & no difference at all except I’ve thrown away more $ to a service that does me no service.
  • Great concept

    By Adamk123zz
    Yes the have a great concept and framework. Still the app is not mature and it can be overwhelming for parents to use if they have a lot of devices. We have more than 30 devices and it is a challenge to identify them due to device manufacture naming conventions and family members naming their devices. I think it would be fine if you have fewer devices.
  • Biggest blessing

    By Chaiaf
    I love the circle ! It has brought peace to my home. I’m still vigilant and have covenant eyes installed as a back up. The customer service team at circle is top notch. I feel that they get my concerns and share my values! Keep up the good work.
  • F this

    By preston markwelll
    Hate it please ban it
  • Doesn't work

    By rebabell1281
    We bought the circle device a couple weeks ago and it never really worked. It would block dating sites and other obvious stuff (I had it set to teen with high filters on), but when I tested it with google search, all sorts of pornographic images came up. What if my son were doing this?!? I've tried restarting the filter, my router, my modem multiple times but it's still showing the XXX stuff. Please help!
