Have you set a site as "Not Allowed" but are still able to access it? Is a BedTime/OffTime not working? Pause doesn't seem to be on? There are a couple of things that could be going on here.
The website may be cached and is only showing previously saved data. Websites cache data to help your browser load faster. You can clear the cache on most browsers. After doing so, try to load the page again. Note: streaming sites like YouTube, Netflix, etc. often use a buffered stream to load content. Circle cannot stop buffered content from loading. Instead, once the buffer runs out a new connection will not be established and the content will no longer play.
Save your changes
After making a change to your profile's filter settings, make sure to save those changes by tapping the "Save" button in the top right. Otherwise, Circle won't change them!
Check your settings!
Make sure your settings for the profile or device look correct and would filter what you mean them to. You might need to check your timing or the days you've set up for your BedTime or OffTime (and watch out for weekend differences). If you've set any categories, apps, or websites to "Unmanaged" realize those won't be Filtered even during a Pause! Check your Filter Level and make sure what you're trying to block is set to "Not Allowed". Finally try making a "Custom Filter".
Have the right profile?
Are you sure the device you're on is assigned to the right profile? Make sure the device is on the correct profile that has the filter in question set.
Wait just a minute...
Circle's filter can take a few minutes to take effect, especially if you're changing the setting away from home or for devices with the kid app VPN managing them. This is because the new configuration has to be sent through the internet via our remote/VPN servers, which isn't as instantaneous as over your local Wi-Fi network. After tapping "Save", give your device a moment to propagate those changes.
As well, keep in mind if content has been buffered already when a Pause, Off Time or Bed Time is put in place that will still load. Once the buffered portion is used completely any playback or connection should not proceed.
If none of the above worked, try rebooting your router and then Circle to make sure their processes are all running correctly. After you've rebooted both wait a minute and see if your changes have made a difference.
Have an complicated network? Check out our article on Advanced or Unsupport Network configurations and work through the items there. Afterwards you can test if your devices are being managed correctly.
You might also find that enabling Compatibility Mode helps with your network and managing devices. Set that up while connecting Circle Home Plus or later from your Circle app Menu.
Check and see if the device can be managed if you change how Circle is connected (Ethernet versus Wi-Fi) or if the device is managed on your 2.4ghz versus 5ghz networks.
Disabling IPv6 can sometimes help with management issues. See more here.
