It's no easy feat to manage devices of an entire family given the prevalence of smartphones, tablets and PCs, so the 'Circle' with Disney is here to help. The 'Circle' works by instantly being connected to your home WiFi network and recognizing every other device connected as well. From here, parents can set time limits on connectivity, filter content by rating and even provide insights into how much time individual users are spending online.

Aside from being able to manage device usage, the 'Circle' also has a 'Pause the Internet' functionality that allows administrators to cut Internet connectivity for one or more users. This functionality would come in handy for meal times or when kids should be doing their analog homework.
