The problem is that you open the app and as it is loading it closes and a message appears Arlo keeps stopping

options are then given close app

send feedback.

This happens when using mobile data and wifi.

Even when i use different wifi connections it is still the same.

This has happened since the recent app update to 2.5

Previous version 2.4 was fine.

 

Why dont you just roll back all users to 2.4?

Then when you find out what the problem is with 2.5 release am update.

It is not ISP or data it is something in your latest release.

This was the exact message I was receiving on my desktop. The mobile device gave an error of ARLO not being available.

 

I'm in the Florida Panhandle so maybe it 's a slow process.  Good Luck

Verizon Cell Samsung phone Spectrum internet

Yesterday I became able to log on to Arlo via the web but I could still not log in on my phone. I could not turn off WiFi because we do not have cell here In our small town. Late afternoon I left the house turned off WiFi and went to an area where I could use my phone via a Verizon tower. I was then able to log into Arlo and view pictures and live video. When I returned home everything worked fine again with WiFi turned back on. We will hope it continures that way. 🙂

I also have spectrum I couldn't log in either since 5/27/18 but if I turned my wifi off I was able to. It seems to be working with wifi now. The message I got before was unavailable try again later but now it's working. Strange Who is at fault?

Hello.  First off, thank you for the potential security issue.  The problem after updating my password, now when I click on my Arli icon, it no longer auto signs in. It says password is incorrect.  As mentioned I did change my password, but now both of my iPhones make me enter my password when using the app. It says password incorrect, I then enter my new password and it goes right into my Arlo.  This is fairly new as I’ve always been able just to go right into my Arlo app without ever signing off.  How do I fix this please ?  I’m sorry if I am asking this question for the millionth time, but

Same exact problem a few days ago. Tried the delete, power off, reinstall app and didn’t work. I too just got the iPhone X.

TRY THIS, this worked for me....delete the Arlo app and reinstall and upon initial opening of the app, install it this time hitting “SKIP TOUCH ID”. I was also hitting the “ENABLE TOUCH ID” upon initializing the newly installed app thinking that would allow Face ID but I think that’s where the glitch is. At least that worked for me, hope it works for u too!

Arlo support has always been slow and non optimal to put it in a nice way. Cheers.

Hello,

I just read where Arlo was having issues with people logging in.  My issue, however, is a little different.  I'm able to log in, but now I have to put my password in every time.  This just started a couple of days ago.  It's a pain to do when I've got my hands full coming in the door.  Is this related to this log in problem others might be having?  If not, how do I change it back to the way it was?  Thank you.  Susan Harrison

ARLO is back up here in So. California.  I have Frontier and T-Mobile.  Login issue appears to have been finally addressed as I can login via my cell phone as in the recent past.

Susan,

 

This may an ongoing process....after  not being able to log in on my mobile and ARLO telling me my system was not connected on my desktop they have finally fixed the issue on my end....I didn't have the same issue as you, but I feel it's all a part of the process.

 

Good Luck...I'm located in the Florida Panhandle.......but it seems widespread......

Susan, that’s my exact issue. Every time I have to enter my password 😞
I wonder if this is all due to that possibly security flaw ?? Even though I changed my password, I still have to enter each time. Very aggravating. I want the “the old Arlo back “ !!!

Not only am i not able to use WiFi on my phone to visualize the Arlo App but now i can't view live feed from my cameras through the arlo.netgear.com website. I can view my library videos but not actual live feed from my cameras. I get a message saying "connection failed". This is ridiculous. I can't believe I've spent this much money on all of this equipment and unable to actively view my camera feed for safety of my home. What if I need to view live feed and record because someone is breaking into my home? I also shouldn't have to use my cell phone data to use my Arlo App when i should be able to use my WiFi. This needs to be fixed ASAP. Also, a better way of announcing this to customers needs to be evaluated. If i hadn't gone searching through the community forum then i would have never known about this country-wide issue.

So lets see if I have this right. Netgear (Arlo), broke it (update 2.5), and now they want us to fix it by using our cellular data and/or have our ISP change our DNS? How about instaed they fix it? As to customer sevice....their is none. Would not buy Arlo Pro again. Will update if and when Netgear figures out what they are doing for their "valued customers". In the meantime. I may or may not have a reliable home security system that I paid for.

ARLO,

 

LETS GET THE FACTS STRAIGHT.   YOU BROKE YOUR SYSTEM, NOT US.   THERE WILL BE NO "WORKAROUNDS", SINCE THIS IS YOUR PROBLEM, YOU MUST FIX IT.  ITS TIME YOU MAN (OR WOMAN) UP AND TAKE RESPONSIBILITY RATHER THAN PUSHING YOUR PROBLEMS ON THE ISP's, OR DNS, OR SOME OTHER COP-OUT EXCUSE YOU KEEP MAKING.  YOU JACKED IT UP, SO NOW YOU HAVE TO FIX IT.  BOTOOM LINE IS, YOU WILL END UP EITHER LOSING A LOT OF MONEY AT A MINIMUM, OR GO OUT OF BUSINESS FOR YOUR INCOMPETENCE AND LACK OF CUSTOMER SUPPORT.  GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER, SINCE YOU WILL ULTIMATELY HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE CONSEQUENCES, OF LOSING A BUTT-LOAD OF MONEY OVER THIS MESS, YOU CREATED, NOT US.

Any updates on the fix. Having exact same issue for over 24hrs. We have a baby monitor too that has not worked all this time which is ridiculous and unacceptable.

I got my arlo resolved by changing the password. Arlo sent a notification to update password. Once we did that yesterday everything worked perfectly.

Since this issue started after I changed my password I was wondering if that caused it. I also have the send to verify email alerts and when I do that I never receive anything and it won't go away . However , I seem to be receiving alerts.
