Circle App requirements and restrictions
The Circle Parental Controls app can be installed to manage your Circle account or setup in app to filter your mobile devices (phones and tablets) that are running iOS or Android. The minimal requirements for installing are:
- iOS version 11 or greater
- Android version 6.0 or greater
While Chromebooks and Amazon Kindle Fire tablets can be managed on the home Wi-Fi using the Circle Home Plus device, the Circle Parental Controls app will not run properly on these devices in either parent or kid mode and cannot be managed outside the home using your Circle account.
Parent devices without a camera can not register kids' devices with the Circle Parental Controls app at this time.
