In order to help you, we need a little more information than what you are giving us. Please tell us how you are trying to log in.

Are you for real Brian? Do you think he came to this thread to talk about how his toes are hurting mate?! Obviously there is a massive issue on Netgear's side, can they not just put it all back to how it was before this stupid update? Why the hell would it be acceptable that we need to keep clearing our cookies and caches every two damn seconds in order to use a service!? It's obvious that some issue is causing Netgear to think that even though I logged out of the service hours ago on my PC and closed the browsers that I am SOMEHOW still logged in there, so trying to log in on another device isn't permitted. LAME CODING BOYS!

I am a user just like everyone here and I was also affected by these problems just like everyone else. I am just trying my best to help anyone that I can get their systems up and running again. Sorry if that offends you.

Mate don't you have any pride, or fire in your belly? Why are you trying to 'help' one or two people when the primary issue is still ongoing? You're only doing Netgear's jobs for them. Do you think helping a few people find a temporary solution which then causes them to stop annoying Netgear into actually finding a proper solution is actually helping everyone else? Spend your time pissing off Netgear into fixing their crap, making them accountable somehow, that's what would help.

I think Arlo has really shot themselves in the foot lately, and will pay dearly for their mistakes. I hope they learn something by this. Other than the last two weeks I have never had any problems with my Arlo systems and they are the only cameras that work well with Smartthings. I am very heavily invested in both systems to the tune of several thousands of dollars.

That being said, I too am very disappointed with Arlo's performance lately.

But, I keep thinking of that soccer mom out there that needs this system to be working right now. So I try to help. What they do with their systems later is their concern, but for tonight, I will try to keep as many people as I can safe.

Try removing cookies first or use a different browser.

I am still having the same issue as everyone else about my browser. Nothing seems to help! I am using Windows 10.

This is infuriating. Can't log in. Give us some honest answers please Netgear. Lack of information on what you have done isn't helping.....and stop giving the same advice when i ask for help.

Then you have to tell us what you have tried. We can't guess so that leads to the same basic responses.

Re: You may be logged into NETGEAR Arlo in a different browser tab.

I think whatever update you did knocked all of my wireless cameras out. All of a sudden for no apparent reason my four wireless cameras stopped working. My two interior camera which are plugged into an outlet work fine. When I log into the website it tells me all the wireless cameras are offline but does not give a reason. 

 

I tried restarting the router. I tried pressing the sync button. Not sure what else to do. 

 

Thanks.

The first thing I would do is to remove the power to the base station for one minute and then power it back on and let it boot up for several minutes until all the lights on the base turn green.

If that doesn't fix it there are several other things you can do. Just let us know if you need further help and tell us what browser you are using and/or whether you are using the ios app or the Android app.

I don't use Internet Explorer, so I have no history to delete. But I looked and if you click on the gear icon at the top right of the page, there is a section called browser history where you can delete your browser history on exit.

If you do not want to clear your browsing history, there is a button called settings that allows you to manually delete your cookies and cache.

@gobigkahunawrote:

Clearing the browser history alone doesn't fix it.  You have to also go to: chrome://settings/cookies/detail?site=arlo.netgear.com and delete all.  I'm back in business.  Smiley Happy


This is what did it for me.  Just clearing browser/cookies didn't do it.  Incognito worked but regular didn't.  THe above line got regular working.

BRH, I tried what you suggested but it still dosen't work. I also can't find the "gear" setting at the top right of the page. I have always used Microsoft Edge as my browser. Never had this problem before!

Re: You may be logged into NETGEAR Arlo in a different browser tab.

I found a way to kill arlo cookies in Firefox.  I should ransom it to the (people) at netgear, but it might not work for everybody as well as it did for me.   Please reply or Kudo me if it works for you or not.  Here it is:

 

Open a Firefox window or tab.
Click the menu symbol (it's the 3 bars in the upper right corner)
In the drop down menu, click "Options"
On the left side of the screen click "Privacy and Security"
Under the heading "History" click the link to "remove individual site cookies"

A list of all sites with cookies stored will appear.  
Scroll down to the line that reads "arlo.netgear.com" and click to highlight it.
At the bottom of the box click "Remove Selected"

Click "close" and exit Firefox. 

 

Good luck,

Same problem, removed the app from my phone - why dont you just reset any old session when a new is made, in my case i know for sure that I have NO session running, Im not impressed with the design in the arlo software at all, clearly your talent is with coding firmware not userfrindly software - please hire some fresh talent, your technical programmers are clearly not up to the task

Re: You may be logged into NETGEAR Arlo in a different browser tab.

Why do I need to give modelnumber and model?? An (other) example of poor design - if I give you modelnumber, surely wou know the model, no? And I am already logged in, so you have alle my model details from the unit that are communicating with your server - I do not see need for modelnumber if I have connected your hardware once..
