How Circle Go™ Works
Circle Go extends all of Circle’s settings on your home Wi-Fi to your kid’s mobile device 4G connections, and any other Wi-Fi network they join.
On your home Wi-Fi, Circle has you covered.
Circle covers all your connected devices in the home. Pairing wirelessly with your home network, Circle manages all the traffic across your home Wi-Fi network, allowing you to set Time Limits, create BedTimes, and put Filters on any device.
Circle Go is for every other network.
Circle Go takes all of your Circle settings at home and extends them to your kids’ mobile devices wherever they go. Whether they’re on 4G LTE or a friend’s Wi-Fi, Circle Go keeps Circle’s settings in effect.
Making your smartphone smarter.
Circle Go extends Circle’s settings at home to any network by using a VPN on your kid’s mobile device. A VPN, or virtual private network, allows Circle to directly manage the traffic and enable time tracking, filters, and every other Circle feature.
