The Circle Home app is equipped with a 4-digit lock code for folks who want to secure their Circle app. This is especially valuable for families who have the Circle app on a shared device, such as a family iPad, or for families where more than one adult manages Circle settings.

SETTING UP THE APP LOCK CODE

  1. Open the Circle app.
  2. From the Home screen, go to Menu >> Manage >> Lock Code.
  3. Switch the Enable Lock Code toggle to ON (right).
  4. Enter a 4-digit code as the code you would like to use, and then re-enter it to verify that you have the right code in place.

    NOTE: On iPads, you may need to tap the
    screen to get the keypad to appear.


  5. If your phone is equipped with Apple Touch ID, a new item will appear in the Lock Code management screen. Turn the toggle ON to enable Touch ID to unlock your Circle Home app.


When you launch the Circle app next, you will see one of the following screens, depending on whether Touch ID is enabled. Enter your 4-digit code or your Touch ID to unlock your Circle app.


DISABLING AND RESETTING YOUR APP LOCK CODE

  1. From the Home screen, go to Menu >> Manage >> Lock Code.
  2. Switch the Enable Lock Code toggle to OFF (left). NOTE: This will delete the previous lock code that was set.
  3. Switch the Enable Lock Code toggle back to ON to set a new lock code using the steps above.


FORGOT YOUR LOCK CODE?

Once the app lock code has been set for the Circle app, you will need that code to access the profiles and settings in the Circle app. If you have forgotten the lock code, the only way to remove it is to uninstall the app from your device, reinstall the app, and reauthorize that app through the text message passcode sent to the phone number you used when you initially set up your Circle.
