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. You can start by adding a mobile device if you want to. Otherwise you can skip this and add a device from your device list.
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. An icon with a small house in it indicates the device is assigned to your Home Profile.
Just select any device to add it to this Profile. If you make a mistake here, just select it again to clear the checkmark.
When device assignment is how you want it, tap Continue. Your new Profile is all ready to go! If you want to create another tap Add another family profile otherwise tap I'm finished.
