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."

We wanted to provide you with an update on the current login issue some users are experiencing where you may be unable to login to your Arlo apps, or are seeing the message “We're sorry, Arlo is currently unavailable. 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.

“Safari cannot open the page because the address is invalid.” That’s to alro website to view the cameras..
Hello All, Hard to believe that this is going on... Set everything up...it worked fine...then the next day it said "firmware upgrade". We were silly enough to trust you to test this but you didn't. Now the system is not working...resets only wasted time...we've paid already...and today we've arrived in Europe and can't see our house in Florida, or try anything to fix it. We put the 4 cameras back inside.
Shameful really. If I wasn't a computer person myself, I might take pity on you, but you are clearly just spending the money over there. Since any code that you care about should be tested thoroughly, it is sad that you all have failed like this, and upset so many (hard to find, easy to lose) loyal customers.
Best news ever for your competition though (are they hacking you...?)...and you could not be harming yourselves any more if you tried. We will be sending your sorry stuff back at the next chance...unless you can fix this like an adult. Class action sounds good, but you have probably moved the money to Malta already...or put gas in your bosses' airplane(s). Nice.
It would be justice if you were suffering approprately, but given the lack of an answer after this long...you are probably at the golf course... Life is great without a care. Have fun in Chapter 11.
The good news? I don't need to log in.
HOWEVER, All 4 cameras are "getting status" for the past 4+ hours.
Base camera light still amber.
At 5pm I will have not seen a recording or live camera shot for at least the last 48 hrs.
Aside from the cameras "getting status", the base is "offline".
The internet is up and running, the X BOX is running great, the thing that SUCKS is still the ARLO APP.
My WIFI? (Thats all I want to use) thru SPECTRUM/NETGEAR.
Does anyone that is in the tech industry know about technology specific lawyers? I'm done with this bs. I just want my money back and to move on from arlo/netgear products. After days and weeks and now months of problems I'm over it.
Netgear should be ashamed but it's 2018 and there is never honor among thieves. For who ever said they contacted thrir local media outlet about this send them the screen shots of people just trying to protect their family. Their autistic child. An elderly relative, their kids from an abusive spouse or protect their biggest investment - their home.
Netgear is scum.
Thanks for the login failure screen info, I enter the app and it takes me straight to cameras that NOW SAY after several hours of "getting status" the appears to be offline message, not the amber strip uptop but across the camera shot.
TBC (either way)
p.s. it`s time for DODGER baseball
Return it to where you purchased it. If not possible chalk it up to a hard life lesson and go get a system that works and has real customer service staff that can guide you if you need help. 1100 something messages here and someone from netgear/arlo chimed in three, four times? And never with a resolution or a "hey, we dropped the ball" Pathetic.
Dear Goran, our software is **bleep** and we know it. We got paid and you got played, please keep buying Netgear and we'll keep our end of the bargain (wink wink nudge nudge) ... ta ta sucker.
I think I summarized it aptly.
Access and login was restored yesterday and all seems to be ok at the moment. I am unable to advise why because I also had an internet outage a few hours later that I couldn't recover. I reported the outage issue to the ISP (TPG Australia) and they had to escalate it to a service technician. A few hours later I had service restored and was also able to login to ARLO.
This is the first issue I've had with Arlo in 2 years so I hope they can resolve it for everyone before it becomes someones security issue.
Will not connect on iPhone 8 on Wi-Fi. Have to use cellular to log in.
Seems to work fine on iPad Pro. Connected to same Wi-Fi.
AT&T and Spectrum internet.
Hi I can log in to my app but my cameras are not working. There is an error message saying:
"Your base station is offline
Pink/red pictures. The camera is a distance away and don't have the option of opening and closing the battery door. What other option do we have. Arlo provides no assistance. Their chat line never works. Let's take the company over!
But my Arlo Q cams are working since they do not need the base.
This has been on a cellular network Verizon or WiFi with different ISP.. Spectrum, & summit broadband..
So there something else going on..
I don't have this specific problem but I can't seem to post a new question. I can't log in from Chrome at all. Just stays on the Log in screen. Been looking around at Flash info and tabs and allowing but no go. So I'm using IE. I got logged in to my account and cameras but I can't start a new question on either Chrome or IE. I'm using WIndows 8.1.
