How it works

Setup is easy. To get started, download the new Circle Parental Controls App and let it walk you through setup. Just connect your Circle Home Plus device to your home Wi-Fi with the cable provided, and plug it in to power on. Circle Home Plus can start managing any device connected to your home network.

Improved technology

The more secure and more flexible Circle Home Plus uses an optimized cloud-based solution to deliver a more consistent and reliable experience. It’s also a faster network connection thanks to a 1Gb Ethernet port and has a 40% faster CPU. Each Circle Home Plus device also includes a built-in backup battery to ensure it keeps running even when unplugged.

Coverage everywhere

The new Circle App extends the same online screen time management functionality you get at home to mobile devices outside your home that use data and Wi-Fi.

Tremendous value

Circle Home Plus includes a one-year subscription to the Circle App, including basic and premium features, plus coverage everywhere, which was not standard for Circle with Disney.

To our customers who used Circle with Disney, we’re excited to offer a premium discount on the all-new Circle Home Plus solution. Enter your unique promo code during checkout to take advantage of this limited time promotion.

FAQs

Can I use my existing Circle with Disney account?

Circle is not able to transfer history of existing profile and settings from the Circle with Disney system into the new app. You can set up fresh account profiles in the new Circle App.

What if I currently subscribe to Circle Go?

Circle Home Plus doesn’t work with the Circle Go app. Those using the MyCircle app and Circle Go service will need to install the new Circle App and follow the setup process to manage Android and iOS devices outside the home. If you are currently using Circle Go, you will need to cancel that subscription wherever you subscribed.

Can I upgrade my current Circle with Disney device?

It is not possible to upgrade the Circle with Disney hardware alone.

What types of devices can Circle manage?

Circle manages and monitors online screen time and content on any connected device. That means Wi-Fi devices AND mobile devices – anywhere they go. Smartphones, tablets, computers, smart TVs, gaming consoles, streaming devices, smart assistants and more are covered with Circle.

Is my router compatible with Circle Home Plus?

Circle Home Plus is compatible with the vast majority of routers. Circle also has the option to enable Compatibility Mode within the app to ensure the best experience and connection.

With the Circle Home Plus 1-year subscription, you get access to all premium features, and you can use all Circle features both in-home with the devices connected to your Wi-Fi, and on mobile devices outside your home on any network.
