Update: 5/28/18 @ 8:52PM Pacific
We have identified a DNS issue with certain Internet Service Providers that is causing connection to the Arlo app to fail. We are continuing to monitor the situation, and in the meantime we have identified a temporary workaround.
- Use a mobile device to connect to the Arlo app with Wi-Fi turned off (use cellular data/LTE). Please note that this option will use data from your cellular plan.
Some users have reported success logging into their Arlo app by updating their DNS settings to a public DNS server. For assistance with changing your DNS settings, it is recommended to contact your ISP.

As part of our ongoing investigation and with the help of our Community and Social users, we’ve uncovered that the Arlo app login issue is only affecting some customers on some service providers.
If you are seeing the message “We're sorry, Arlo is currently unavailable. Please try again later” and are willing to help us troubleshoot by providing us with your service provider (wifi or cellular carrier) and device type (iOS, android, web app). Please reply to this thread.

We are looking into reports that some users are still seeing the error "We're sorry, Arlo is currently unavailable. Please try again later" or "cannot log in due to internet connectivity issues". This does not affect library recordings or any previously set modes and rules. We are continuing to investigate this issue, and will keep you updated here on this thread.
Important Update 5/27/18 @ 11:00PM Pacific:
Some users had trouble logging into their Arlo apps earlier today, however, this did not affect library recordings or any previously set modes and rules. All systems are now up and running as expected. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this has caused."

Please try again later". We are still actively investigating this issue and are working towards a resolution. Thank you for your continued patience. We will continue to update this thread as we have more information.

Hello Valued Arlo Customers,
We are aware of an issue where some users are unable to login to their Arlo apps, or are seeing the message “We're sorry, Arlo is currently unavailable. Please try again later". We are actively investigating this issue and are working to resolve it. We'll update this thread when we have further information/updates.

you expect us to have our home protected with your devises not even working? i keep getting a pop up in log in menu "sorry; we are having trouble signing you in because of internet connectivity issues. do you want to try again?" i have already checked my internet twice and it is working perfectly. Safety is always my number one concern and i think i might have made a mistake with buying your product.
Even though my phone app is down, the web based application is working just great for me on my desktop, including catching, monitoring, notifying, and displaying new motion events.
Widespread outage for arlo.netgear.com, DNS unresolved, what's going on and what's the ETA for a solution?
Most cloud services have a status page for their services right up on the site, how is one even supposed to find this information? Twitter? Are you kidding me?
Yeah, yet again, systems are down, we should all be due a refund, think it is time to take this system back. Best part while on hold I have a security company recorded message saying remove the special characters from my passwords, are they seriously telling us that their systems can't handle special characters? Have they not updated their system since 1980, oh yeah, that is probably what broke it. Also advertizing they can help make my computer run better, that's what I need is my computer to function as poorly as the Arlo system.
You have been working on this all day long, or at least that is what support told me this morning. How is it that you do not understand your systems well enought to have repeated outages that last longer than a day? This happens on a regular basis and is unacceptable.
@Retired_Member To answer your question regarding the recording on the support line, I don't work at or for the call center, so I can't speak for them personally. However, I did escalate this to call center management, and they are working on updating the recording now.
No luck for me login in at all. If their systems are down, how can some log in?
Hey all. I changed my connection from wifi to mobile data on my phone. This helped me log in and check my devices live. Hopefully this works for all of you.
