When the Circle App is set up on a kid's device, it turns into a handy dashboard that your kid can use to keep track of how much time they have left online, any available Rewards, today's Focus Times, a countdown until the night, and Usage.
The Circle Dashboard allows your kid to self-monitor and keep track of how much time they have left each day. Let's take a look at each of the sections and the information they can display.
How to reach the kid's dashboard
- For kid devices that are managed using the Circle Parental Controls app and VPN, simply launch the Circle app from the kid device to load the dashboard.
- For any Wi-Fi devices managed by a Circle Home Plus device, you can reach the kid dashboard by visiting http://dashboard.meetcircle-blue.com in a web browser while that device is on the home Wi-Fi.
This first section displays the Profile name and any associated picture, along with a few other useful details.
Filter Level: The current Filter Level setting. This can be Kid, Teen, Adult, or None. Check our Filters Feature Article to find out what these mean.
Status: Displays Profile status. There are several possible statuses: Normal, Paused, Time limit, Bedtime, or Focus Time.
Devices: Displays the number of devices assigned to this Profile.
Usage breaks down all time spent online, so your kids can plan ahead to better manage whatever time they have remaining. Popular Apps and Websites, and Categories will display here, as well as how much time they spent on each.
Displays any Time Limits in place on this device's profile and how much time remains until each one is hit.
Any Rewards that have been granted to the Profile on the current day will appear here, as well as how much of each has been used up.
Focus Time and Bedtime
These two sections show any Focus Times that have been set, as well as the current day's Bedtime, so they can see how much time they have left before it's time to put their devices to bed.
