Have a website, platform, or category that you always want a family member to have access to and that won't count against their Time Limits? That's what the Unmanaged filter setting is for!
What's the Unmanaged filter level?
When you set a website, platform, or category to Unmanaged, Circle won't ever filter it or count time spent on it toward Time Limits. It will always be accessible for the profile you set it as Unmanaged for, even during OffTimes, BedTimes, Pauses, or when Time Limits have been reached. In addition, the website, platform, or category won't appear in your Usage or History.
What is the Unmanaged setting useful for?
Unmanaged is a great setting if a family member or their device should always be able to reach a certain website or if you don't care about how long or at what time of day they access it. For example, you may find the Unmanaged setting useful if your family member has a device that regularly transmits health information, such as a blood sugar monitor, or if you want your family member to have unlimited access to a music streaming app like Spotify.
How do I set something to Unmanaged?
Setting a website, platform, or category to Unmanaged is super easy:
- Open the profile you'd like to make changes for.
- Tap Filter.
- Tap on the Filter settle button next to the website, platform, or category to cycle through the Allowed, Not Allowed, and Unmanaged settings.
