Lon had done a review of Gen 2 of this device, and the fact that these things use ARP spoofing coupled with cloud based query storage should make everyone uneasy. If Disney gets hacked at any point in the future (which really is a matter of when and not if), these things can be easily used to serve up man in the middle attacks that can funnel most of your web data (including https data) to a remote attacker.

I have a router with this built in. For any of the app functionality we have to pay $4.99 a month. We can still do all the functions by logging into the router from a PC connected to the network but in order to use the app on our smartphones it is 499 a month
If you buy the circle device you don't have to pay a subscription. They have a subscription for 'circle go' that can be added on to filter cell phones when away from home (not on wifi).

I have the router and this is true. However, the features that you have to pay for on the router are included for free with the device. The only thing not free on the device is the VPN services for stuff outside of your home (which i think they are discontinuing anyway)

Funny, I raise my 2 daughters experiencing Disney and visiting disneyworld every single year and guess what....they are turning out just fine and having a blast. It's called exposing your children to all things...not keeping things because you think things are evil bahaha
Other people teach their kids to think for themselves. You do you.

So glad my kids are not old enough to "browse" the internet. Instead I have about 25 websites whitelisted (Apple devices, my only windows device doesn't easily do this) for them to use.

I am assuming there is a "gen 2". What is the difference?

We have one and use it. Don't pay anything monthly. Make sure your router works with it before buying.

Have one, its nearly worthless. it might help limit a very young childs exposure to bad internet things,
I paid a lot more, so if you like it, it is cheaper.

I have this built into a netgear router. I liked that idea rather than an added on device. Works with dns which doesn't seem to cause issues. I added YouTube restricted mode for the kids which they can't get around. Also have internet turned off kids devices for bedtime. Things like cameras are unmanaged. I actually think it's a worthwhile service for at least placibo peace of mind.

Tldr. I pay the $5 to have it built in because kids are scandulaous.

I don't know all the differences, but a major one is that Gen 1 limited to 100mb speed and 2.4ghz for wireless. Gen 2 is full gigabit and also covers 5ghz wireless. So if you have greater than 100mbs speed from your internet provider Gen 1 will slow you back to 100mbs as all traffic goes through this.

I have this, and it does a decent job. In conjunction with Google Family Link and Apple Screen Time I have sucked all the joy from my children's lives. I have an ASUS router which has some semblance of "parental controls" but the feature set is pretty abysmal. Circle (without the extra "go" service) helps limit times of day I allow any devices in my LAN access to the internet and I can block out times for schoolwork and sleep. It's true that some tech savvy kids could get around the controls by jumping on a cellular or vpn connection, but that's where the Apple Screen time controls help with iPhones and iPads. I just have to make sure my own devices are unfiltered though cause, ya know...

Is OpenDNS not sufficient?
How? How do you use OpenDNS to set timers/allowance, or force youtube restricted mode?

Put Disney in charge of what my kids see? Oh heck no. Disney is the only channel I ever blocked when my kids were growing up. Their ethics and their use of both blatant and subliminal sexual messages is disgusting. Seriously folks--don't trust your kids to Disney. Walt was awesome. What it's become since he passed away is just plain evil. Search your soul--you know down in there somewhere you know what I'm talking about.
Donald and Daisy Duck don't even wear pants! Half-naked ducks, just running around quacking! It's immoral!

If God wanted ducks to be naked, he would have made them without any clothing. And now, Disney is trying to tell us that mermaids are black! A black mermaid! Everybody knows that mermaids are white! It's a documented fact that no-one has ever sighted a black mermaid in all of human history. That proves mermaids are all white!

And... and... Goofy! What the??? If Pluto is Mickey Mouse's dog, and Pluto never speaks, he just barks, then what sort of hellfire creature is Goofy? He's neither man nor beast! A creation of the devil!
