After several months of trouble free service, when I try to log in to Arlo, I now get the following message,

 

"You may be logged into NETGEAR Arlo in a different browser tab. Please close the tab before proceeding. You can also try to restart your browser or delete cookies from your browser before trying to login again."

 

I've tried shutting down my other computer, I've deleted all cookies and restarted and I still can't get access to my system. My password hasn't changed, nothing has changed except I can't log in. I've also rebooted the base station.

 

Ideas?

I had that problem, too. I use Chrome and used:

 

chrome://settings/cookies/detail?site=arlo.netgear.com

 

which allowed me to log in. Using the app works with no problems.

I am caught in an endless cycle on the app. Log in, says password is wrong, change it, log in, go to do something and it says session expired to log in, try to log in, says password is incorrect, reset password, log in...round and round. This last time for fun I entered the same password and it said it can't be same password as current...yet it won't let me log in with that. Just fyi in case they need details of what is happening.

 

**I have this system for the app, and not computer browser.

I had the same problem this morning.  Cleared cookies (have never had to do that previously), and got in.

 

BUT...I cannot get into Arlo from the app on my phone now.  Try to log in and it gives an error reading "We're sorry, Arlo is currently unavailable.  Please try again later."  Yet I can access Arlo through my PC fine (once the cookies were deleted); so obviously Arlo IS available.

 

The last few days have been ridiculous.  I've had to power cycle my base unit and re-sync all of my cameras to restore the functionality of the "schedule" mode.  There are still parts of this forum that won't allow me to post; it says "Access denied.  You do not have sufficient priviledges for this resource or it's parent to perform this action."  An hour on chat produced absolutely no solutions.  Recordings that are supposed to continue till activity stops instead stop while there is still movement going on.  Now gaining access to my account is like pulling teeth on the PC and impossible on the app?

 

Come on, Arlo, get it together.  This is exactly how initially great business models end up failing.  I (and others) have paid way too much money for this equipment to have these issues.

 

Edit:  Now I finally got in to Arlo on my phone app; using the fingerprint login, it just kept going around in circles telling me that my session expired.  Log in, session expired, login, session expired, login...  Using my password instead finally got me in.  This has never been a problem before.  These last two days have made me wish I hadn't bought this system.

There is an update for Arlo in the Play Store for Android phones. Do your update maybe that'll solve the problem

Unable to login here also, I have tried both Google Chrome and MS Edge without any luck.
The login screen flashes and show the camera page for a "microsecond" then back to the login screen.

Seems to work on iPhone though, but I do not dare to log out on the app.

Another issue is that I do not have any sound on my Q when using live view.

In Chrome, you have to delete your Arlo cookies, or better yet, just delete your browsing history.

Believe me I have tried. Does not work on Google Chrome or on MS Edge even after clearing everything incl. cookies.

That is strange. I deleted my browsing history in Chrome for all time, and then I was able to log in.

For the Android app, I had to force stop the app. I was then able to log in fine. Clearing Arlo cookies for a browser should also work.

Force stopping the app and clearing the cache did not work for me; I had to uninstall and reinstall.  Now the app "seems" to be working correctly again, for the time being anyway.

For those experiencing an issue logging in, if using google Chrome try pasting this in your url bar and then click "Remove All":

 

chrome://settings/cookies/detail?site=arlo.netgear.com

 

If using Firefox, follow the instructions listed here: How to clear the Firefox cache

 

If using the mobile app, check the app store and be sure you have the latest version available downloaded and installed.

 

You should then be able to log in.

Its one in the morning.  I am not in the mood to look all this up.  I can't log into my Arlo account.  I get a message I need to see if it is running on another browser---no.   I see others are getting that message.  I need help doing some of the things required.  I am so sick of issues with every product I buy.   Are the answers coming from the community???  I would like to speak to Arlo tech.
