It looks like Circle with Disney–the in-home screen time monitoring platform that launched last November–is expanding its orbit.

Oregon-based Circle Media has launched Circle Go, a new cloud-based subscription service that lets parents manage their kids’ devices when they leave home.

Users of Circle Go will have the ability to disable apps, limit screen time and stay informed about how kids spend time online. Parents can also choose a filter that matches each child’s age and interests, while weeding out inappropriate content on platforms like Snapchat, Instagram and YouTube. Plus, a pause button can disable internet access for one device or all devices within the home, in the car or on-the-go.

The service, available for US$9.95 per month for up to 10 devices.

The original Circle with Disney system is sold at Target and Best Buy stores across the US (US$99 apiece), and it is managed through a free companion app.
