Shut Up and Take My Money: Circle with Disney
Adding an extensive set of parental controls to any home Wi-Fi network, Circle with Disney is a Internet-connected device that lets parents filter content on devices within the home.
In addition, parents can limit the amount of time kids can access content as well as set a specific time when zero content can be accessed on the device, such as bedtime.
Tied to personal logins, the filter option include presets for Pre-K children, elementary school kids, teenagers and adults. Each of these options comes with a barrage of default settings, but each can be customized based off the child. Access to specific apps can be flipped on and off, Internet content can be filtered by category, access to specific sites can be cut off and advertising can be blocked completely.
In addition to cutting off access at specific times, Circle includes a pause button that can completely cut off all access in the home or it can be set by device. This feature is ideal for family time, such as meals. Regarding bedtime access limits, each device will offer up a splash page to send them back to bed until access is restored in the morning.
On top of the content filtering, Circle also tracks usage and offers up data summaries such as the length of time users utilize devices. The data summaries break down usage by app as well as time spent on each site. Users can compare usage data over time, specifically against the previous day, week or month. The data also includes a list of sites visited as well as a list of sites that were filtered by the device.
