It’s summertime! Kids are spending more time than ever online and parents are looking for ways to monitor what they are viewing.   Circle Media Inc., in a cobranding partnership with Disney, has created a custom monitoring system to help parents protect their children as they use the Internet. The Circle with Disney device pairs wirelessly with a router and instantly detects any devices (including smart phones and TVs, gaming systems, tablets, laptops, etc.) that are paired with the local Wi-Fi network. The companion app gives parents full control over the content viewed and the time spent on each connected device. Through the dashboard on the app, parents can customize profiles for each family member with specific control settings such as:

  • Time limits that allow parents to control screen time usage with a variety of platforms, apps, and web-based programs
  • Bed time targets that automatically disconnects and reconnects devices from Wi-Fi at scheduled times
  • Filters that are specific to age and interest levels
  • Pause feature that provide the ability for parents to turn Wi-Fi off at any time

The Circle with Disney app, currently available for iOS 8 or later, allows parents to track and compare online usage from week to week, month to month, per site and by interest or category. Circle uses end-to-end encryption and ARP spoofing to keep data secure. It automatically monitors all traffic on the home network, and will allow or deny users to access the Internet from their device, based on the pre-set parental controls. Circle also recognizes guest devices, blocks ads from any device on the network, and it is fully compliant with Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) standards.
