    • I have this unit. It does a pretty good job of filtering, scheduling, pausing, and monitoring hardware accessing your internet. And my kids hate it, so its doing something right i guess.

      Disney did introduce a newer version recently,so at this price, you would have to wonder how much longer Disney will support this version.

      I would suggest picking up version 2 if your serious about this type of item, and Amazon is the only retailer that seems to sell that one right now.

      One cool thing i like is when your kids friends (or anyone else) comes over and accesses your network, and when they leave you remove their device from circle. Well sure enough, your phone will get a notification that the device is back on Circle. and boom, 10 seconds later, your door bell rings and you already know who is at the door. This also works well with spouses and if you want to know when they get home from work. LOL!!!!

      You also need to check your routers compatibility. My old router wouldn't let it run unless I disabled the 5Ghz band. My existing router is a blended SSID, and it seems to work fine.

      The OP is incorrect about the Circle Go external LTE support. They killed this back a few months ago and is only offered now on the 2nd version.

      Thanks for the inside info. I've updated the OP to reflect that the device does not support Circle Go subscription.

    • I have this. Got it last time BB had it for 40$. It's a pretty good device for tracking what my kid watches. We are slowly starting to introduce limits on screen time so automatically setting a block for all weeknights is easy.

      I don't know what difference is between Ver 1 & Ver 2. I noticed today I received an app update for Ver1 of Circle.

      My only complaint - it seems to loose connectivty to my network sometimes. It's plugged directly into my Netgear Nighthawk, and configured for Wifi. Dunno...

      I think the update was for Android 10.
      Ya, its hit and miss sometimes with connecting. more so when i try connecting to it outside my network.

      Biggest difference between Version 1 and Version 2 is that Version 2 requires a subscription after the first year at $10/mo to access any of the time limits, bed times, etc. Only Filtering and History are included in the default set of features.

      Version 1, however, includes the majority of features out of the box without a subscription required.

      Wow, what a cash grab. So V1 is the best to get.

    • I bought it earlier this year as soon as I connected this to my home network and enabled the filters...it started causing to interfere with my streaming traffic off plex that even i had tried to bypass... there was a quite congestion on the internal network...Returned the Unit and told kids, "You are not allowed to Watch TV/touch phones/ipads" without my permission.....so far everything is working.

      V2 covers devices off of Wi-Fi, V1 does not.

      CYI, Disney cancelled their affiliation with Circle.

    • Thanks OP! Extended to Oct 3 now. This thing is better than I expected, just doesnt seem to filter the 5ghz band on my netgear router. Just had to change the password on the 5ghz band. Kids are asking for chores for more time online now.

    • installed this a few day ago and its just terrible

      I have internet 300+Mbps and my sons Ipad now had a DL speed on less than 10Mbps.

      I know this device can only do 10/100 but this a joke. The "pause" button doesn't really even work reliably or quickly and once you "unpause" there's still no access.

      In fact, I've uninstalled everything and disconnected this junk and I still being blocked on both of my Ipad devices???

      Does anyone know how I can rid myself of this mess and get wifi back on my Ipads?

      I wouldn't think a device that manipulates internet access via hardware can continue to do so ever after its been removed\powered down. I don't have this device and am unaware of the setup process but it doesn't seem to be Circle related.

      Thanks for the reply. I ended up contacting Circle and they advised that my Telus Router (the newer T3200M) is not compatible with their device.

      Basically when you use circle to pause a device it takes down the connection permanently.

      To fix this, I had to install the App again, then move both devices to the "unmanaged" device folder. That move released the lock that was placed on the WiFi Access for these devices.

      If you have a newer Telus Router avoid this device
