Because Circle Go for iOS and Android are implemented in different ways, the MyCircle app has slightly different roles for each platform.
On iOS, once Circle Go is installed on your mobile device, you may remove the MyCircle app from your mobile device without disrupting your Circle Go experience. For Android, however, MyCircle is a core part of the experience and must remain on the device that you are managing with Circle Go.
There are additional benefits to keeping the MyCircle app on your phone or tablet. With the MyCircle app, you can...
- View your Dashboard
Family members can get a snapshot of their Internet use and Circle settings. The dashboard allows you to see your device's name, Filter Level, daily usage report, Time Limits, and BedTime.
- Receive Disney content
Circle has partnered with Disney to bring great content from the Disney vaults right into your phone or tablet. The MyCircle content feed presents you with a curated collection of videos, gifs, social feeds, and more, all based on your filter level.
- Install Circle Go
Even if you haven't installed Circle Go in the past, the opportunity is always still available in the app. In the event that you subscribe to Circle Go after having the MyCircle app for a while, you can easily add Circle Go to that mobile device without reinstalling the app. Click (android) (iOS) to learn more about installing Circle Go.
