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.

Just verified - cannot connect from Google internet connection but can successfully launch and view from phone on AT&T connection. Interesting that even though I cannot connect on the WIfi, my Base Station (which is connected to the Wifi) is functioning just fine. FYI..
Don't expect it to get any better. The last update destroyed what little reliability arlo had and that wasn't much. Consider taking it back before your stuck with it like the rest of us. As you can see there is ZERO support.
I was no longer having the login problem on my iPad after deleting and re-installing the app, but my iPhone X was still getting the error message once or twice before allowing me in. So I thought I’d try enabling Touch ID which I assumed would be face recognition on the X. After setting the Touch ID slider, the Arlo app just crashed repeatedly when I tried to open it. Over and over. So I closed the app from memory by clicking on the minus sign (equivalent to flicking an app up on an IPhone that is not a X), then deleted the app off my iPhone and then I rebooted my iPhone. After that, I reinstalled the app from the App Store. I was able to login and I’ve been able to get in without an error several times since then. You might try this process. Delete the app from memory, delete the app from the phone, reboot the phone, then reinstall the app.
