The Arlo Development team is currently investigating this topic. I will provide an update as soon as I know more.

That is Arlo's response? I feel so much better now. I bet the "team" is up day and night investigating. How about the team switch from investigating to fixing? If you read all 13 pages of complaints from the last 3 days, you should be able to wrap up the investigating apect. Or perhaps the team needs a few more screenshots before it can begin to fix things?

I'm having a similar issue.

I launched Arlo app on my phone after an update on 11/21/18 and was prompted with permission request "Allow Arlo to make and manage phone calls" I allowed it and app opened fine. However, ever since then, every single time I make or accept a phone call, Arlo app would crash even if I don't have an actual app running and I would not get anymore push notification from the app until I go and launch the application once so the process starts running in the background.

 

Phone: Galaxy S7 edge

Application version: 2.6.3_23000
Base Firmware: 1.12.0.0_27099
I have 5 cameras, all have Firmware: 1.125.11.3_26229

 

Model: VMC4030P | Arlo Pro 2 Wire-Free Camera

A more sincere apology from Arlo and its so-called development team would go a long way toward customer satisfaction and retention.

Also, Arlo needs to notify about its broken app and what it is going to do about it, on its main website and community. Not just bury some vague comment about "the development team is looking into it" in a merged thread with 14 pages.

Do companies no longer understand how to give good customer service? Guess not. Looks like it is time for me to write to the media and Arlo's CEO and let them know what is going on. Not that anyone cares ...

I have the same phone and same issue. Kind of useless to have a security system I can't monitor. My wife told galaxy 3 still works with the app.

Many existing threads on this. It only happens on some devices. I have 3 and it only happens on 1. Open a case with support here to add pressure.

Samsung J3. Same problem as everyone else here - latest update to the app has made the app crash on my phone. I'm assuming (1) no update from Arlo on a fix yet and (2) no official access to old version that worked in the interim. Correct?

You don't need to open a case at this point. They are fully aware that the app is crashing from their update. Half the people on here have called including myself and it's pointless. The best thing to do is to try and follow what some have done on this thread to get it up and working and keep looking on here to see if they finally fix it.

When I try to open the Arlo app I get a message stating that Arlo has stopped and to Open app again or Send Feedback. This happened right after the new upgrade was installed. How can I fix this?

Did you try to clear the Cache and then Clear Data and run the Arlo app again. Clearing Cache and Data will reset the app back to it's default state as if you just installed the app for the first time. It's a good way to resolve app issues.

Same problem here. Totally unacceptable. The reason I picked this system was to get alerts on an app.

Moto E 5. It just happened with the new update I guess. I have uninstalled and reinstalled three times.

I got both my  phone and my wife's  (both Samsung Note 9s) to work by downloading the 10/30/18 version of the app. Have the app set to not update for now. Will change and let it update once things look to be stable again.
