- Start a membership in-app and then use the option to purchase Circle Home Plus in the app.
Circle Parental Control App and Circle Home Plus
When you buy Circle Home Plus from MeetCircle.com, or a retailer like Amazon/Best Buy, you're buying the bundled version of Circle Home Plus. This means that you're getting the hardware device along with either a 3-month, 1-year or a lifetime premium membership depending on what unit you buy.
You'll want to get the bundled version if you're interested in using Circle Home Plus to manage your devices at home alongside manage mobile devices. Find this online at Circle's Website!

Circle Parental Control App Only
Don't need to manage your device's on your home network? You can use the Circle Parental Control app to just manage your family's mobile iOS and Android devices. We even include a 30-day trial to let you try out our features. Start using the app today by downloading and creating an account. You'll then choose the app only option during set up to start your trial.
App Subscription + Unbundled Circle Home Plus
The standalone version of Circle Home Plus doesn't include a membership credit and is only available once you've signed up for a Circle membership via in-app purchase. It is only available through the Circle App. To take advantage of this option, download the Circle app and follow the prompts to start your free trial!
You'll want the standalone version if you already have a Circle membership for managing your iOS and Android devices but also want to use Circle Home Plus to manage your home Wi-Fi.
Avoiding Double subscriptions
If you purchased a Circle membership through an in-app purchase and proceed to buy the Circle Home Plus + Membership bundle at a retail location or from MeetCircle.com, you may end up with two separate memberships:
- The monthly in-app purchase
- The 3-month, 1-year, or lifetime bundled membership.
If this occurs, you will need to stop the monthly subscription via the appropriate app store. To avoid duplicate memberships, we recommend only purchasing Circle Home Plus through the in-app offer via the sidebar menu if you already have purchased a Circle subscription.
