R7000 NightHawk How To Dismiss Circle Blurb?

Hi - How can we remove the intrusive blurb every time we sign in to our router?

CIRCLE - Enable Smart Parental Controls on Your Router

We don't have need it or want it.   It seems to have appeared with the latest firmware update.

SOLVED R7000 NightHawk How To Dismiss Circle Blurb?

FINALLY -- THE SOLUTION APPEARED

 

Just to upgrade the firmware to V1.0.11.116_10.2.100, and the blurb is gone.

I did so, and it works.  Negear's information follows:

 

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixes possible system kernel panic issues.
  • Fixes the issue where the attached device list displays incorrectly.
  • Fixes the issue where the Circle ad window displays every time when logging in to web interface.

Hi Sonya808, 

 

Hope you're doing well! May you confirm the firmware version your router is currently on for us to better assist. 

 

Thanks,

Christian

Thank you, Christian, for replying -  The firmware is V1.0.11.110_2.1.38.1 .  The blurb appeared with the latest firmware update.  I contacted Mozilla support for Circle about removal.  They ignored my question.  I scoured the web.  Some people advised to roll back to original factory defaults.  That seems self-defeating.  The firmware updates are for a good purpose.

Hi @Sonya808 ,
Since seeing the Circle blurb again, how many times have you tried to dismiss it?
I think after dismissing it 3 times it should go away.

Hi Svetaketu,

Thank you for your advice!  Yes, I have dismissed the blurb multiple times, but it always returns the next time I sign onto the router.  I'd like to get rid of it permanently.
