Circle Feature: Profile Setup
Profiles are the basis for how Circle manages online time and content for the devices in your home. When you create a Profile, you can set Filters, Time Limits, Bedtimes, and more. Any devices assigned to this Profile will be subject to those settings.
This article covers:
- Creating a new profile
- Setting up the profile's settings
- Assigning devices to a profile
Creating a new profile
To create a new profile for your family, launch the Circle app and go to Menu >> Add Profile.
Provide a name and picture
When you start creating a Profile, the first thing you'll be asked to do is assign a name and a picture. Select “Add Photo,” then you'll see the option to either take a new picture using your phone’s camera or choose a picture from the photos currently on your phone.
When everything appears as you’d like, select “Next.”
Configure the Filter, Time Limits, and Bedtime features
When you create a Profile, you'll be taken through the following Profile creation steps. (If you want to skip any of these, select Skip in the upper right corner of the screen.)
Off Times can be added later from the Profile's main screen.
Next, you'll be able to assign devices. Here, you'll see all of the devices currently managed by Circle, with a Profile picture next to each one indicating which Profile it’s assigned to.
NOTE: An image of two blue rectangles indicates it is currently Unmanaged, which is how every new device is classified when Circle first identifies it.
Just select any device to add it to this Profile. If you make a mistake here, just select it again to clear the checkmark.
You'll also notice a large blue button labeled “Add mobile device” at the bottom of this screen. This is where you can add new Android or iOS devices to be managed by Circle. Check here for more information on setting up new devices.
When device assignment is how you want it, tap Done in the upper right corner of the screen. Your new Profile is all ready to go!
