Disney Offers More Parental Control Over Kids’ Screen Time
Circle puts the power into parent's hands when it comes to controlling when and how the family engages online
How much screen time is too much screen time? Disney wants to give parents the power to dictate this in the household through its new service Circle with Disney.
Circle with Disney is a new smart device and app that lets parents manage screen time and filter content for every device in the home, including their smart phones, tablets, computers and gaming consoles. The parent in charge can also set a bedtime for devices, and even completely pause the Internet. Each user’s profile and settings can be customized based on age and parents’ preferences. For example, if a child is under 16, the settings can be changed for their specific devices to ensure they’re unable to view inappropriate content.
