Can't log in via the browser

The service was restored for me when NETGEAR announced the issue resolved.

But the same thing is happening again.

Can't log in via the browser: "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."

Can log in via the app, but can't control the base station.

What browser are you using? I use Chrome. I went in and deleted all oof my browsing history for all time. Included in that was cookies.

After deleting my browsing history, I could log in.

Clear your browser cookies and it works again. I have no idea what the heck they always mess with.

Re: Can't log in via the browser

Finally made my 260 mile trip to the mountains to get my Arlo Go cameras. Removed batteries, recharged them, and now I am up and working. Thanks for the help from the community here, not Arlo!!

I am unable to log in to Arlo App/web interface again this morning.  Is this issue affecting others?

Yes, this worked in Chrome, Brian.  Also, by uninstalling and reinstalling smart phone app (Android) I was able to log in from phone as well.  Thanks!

Re: Can't log in via the browser

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.

Re: Can't log in via the browser

I have had the same problem as the rest, I can't login because I have opened in other tab.  I have cleared out the history and I still get the same error message.  I also have had months of uninterrupted service until recently.  Now I don't even get emails alerting me of motion detection.  I have looked at all the likely problems, and completed all of the "fixes" and I still get the login error message.  PS the browser is Chrome, and I can log in with Edge, but I can't see the videos.  I have also log in on a different computer once using Chrome.

Re: Can't log in via the browser

In Chrome go and pull up the Arlo login page.

Then click on "Secure" on the left of the address bar.

Click on the number of cookies shown under "Cookies".

In the popup box click "Remove" until all of them are gone.

Click "Done". 

Close Chrome.

Launch Chrome and go to the Arlo login again and log in.

Re: Can't log in via the browser

After clearing the cookies, I was eventually able to log in. But my base station was still offline. After multiple reboots and two-three days, it finally came back online.

To note that when powered on the alarm was armed (as I triggered it several times), but couldn't log in to turn it off, and don't see any recording in the library now. In conclusion, there was indeed an issue in the connection of the base station to the server. Nothing to do with my browser or my phone.

I'm on IE and yes i have cleared everything 4 times now and nothing, I even shut the whole thing down over the weekend to see if that would help and nothing.

Re: Can't log in via the browser

When using IE 11, click the gear icon in the top right hand corner of your screen, go to Safety > Delete Browsing History.

 

This will bring up the following window, be sure to check off the boxes pictured below and then click Delete. Close and reopen your browser window and attempt to log in to Arlo.

 

Be sure to uncheck the "Preserve Favorites Website Data" box if it is already checked.
