Many people will download the Circle Parental Controls app and subscribe to the Circle subscription via an in-app purchase. Afterwards, they may want to change their subscription to a Circle Home Plus bundled subscription in order to cover the entire home. We strongly recommend changing your subscription at this point.
If that is true of you, there are two options:
- Purchase Circle Home Plus via the link in the app and continue with your in-app purchase.
- End the subscription and purchase a Circle Home Plus bundle with 3-months, 12-months, or a lifetime subscription.
If you'd like to take option #2 above, please follow the steps below.
Step 1: Cancel the Subscription you Purchased In-App
First, we need to cancel the subscription you purchased in the Circle app. The steps will differ slightly depending on whether you subscribed via the iOS app or the Android app.

To cancel in Android

- Follow the instructions in-app.
Once your subscription purchased in-app is canceled, it's time to activate the one that came with your Circle Home Plus bundle.
Step 2: Start your Circle Home Plus Bundle Subscription
Once you've received your Circle Home Plus bundle and canceled the subscription you purchased in-app, it's time to start your new 3-month, 12-month, or lifetime subscription.

- In the Circle app, open the sidebar and tap Setup Circle Home Plus.
- Tap Continue.
