One of the most stressful concerns for millennial parents is monitoring the kind of online content their children consume, the time of the day when they come online, and for how long they stay online. Disney Circle is the one-stop solution to all these woes. 

What is the Disney Circle?

Circle with Disney is a small white box that pairs with your existing Wifi router to monitor and regulate the internet usage across all devices connected to that router, be it smartphones, computers, tablets, gaming consoles – everything. You can then download the Disney Circle App, where every user has their own profile. You can monitor when and for what they are using the internet, and then set up the parental controls. 

Check out this minute-long video on Disney Circle to get a quick introduction about it.

Pricing

There are no added fees for the app or for different features. The device costs $129.99, which includes a year-long subscription, post which you will be charged $9.99 per month. This will work across all devices connected to your Wifi. But to keep tabs on your kids when they use LTE, i.e., when they are not at home, or not using the home Wifi, you can choose to subscribe to Circle Go for $4.99 a month for up to ten devices. Using this, you can establish your parental controls even on LTE for your children.
