Circle is devoted to helping families thrive with technology and with each other. Circle envisions a world where families find balance, set healthy limits, build good habits, and get the best out of their digital experiences, rather than being consumed by them. Its screen time management and parental control solutions are the easiest and most comprehensive way to manage all your family’s connected devices—everywhere. Circle also collaborates with strategic partners to bring our service to more families. Its features, including content filters, time limits, and the ability to Pause the Internet®, set device Bedtimes and block specific apps, have already served as helpful tools for parents during shelter-in-place. By managing all Wi-Fi devices inside and mobile devices outside the home on any network, Circle is able to offer a comprehensive solution to common screen time woes. Customers can purchase the Circle App from the app stores or bundled with the Circle Home Plus in-home device. Circle features are also available through Circle on Netgear. The Circle website includes resources for parents and caregivers including advice from experts, a space to learn from other parents’ experiences, and a blog with timely tips about topics like screen time during social distancing.

In my household we use tools like Circle. The lure of the screen is just too great and these solutions, when used in combination with traditional parenting, ensure my children stare into the real world - at least for a few minutes a day


Happily, the Circle controls have just solved this thorny little problem. It's a device you hook into your internet and then control with an app. Nothing is installed on phones, consoles, TVs and computers but it can monitor and control them all.


With Circle, you don't have to worry about hearing 'just 5 more minutes' when it's time to turn off the TV, or wonder if your kids are staying up past their bedtime scrolling through their devices.
