Arlo spun out from Netgear a while ago, but it’s always used the same Netgear-signed software. There is a new Arlo app available on the Play Store as of today. The redesigned software has the same layout as before, but it now includes two-factor authentication.

The existing Arlo app will be decommissioned on September 30th, so you have a few weeks to install the new one. The key change is that the new software is supplied by Arlo rather than Netgear, so there should be no learning curve. Your existing account login will function, and the new app should be accessible from all your devices. However, you will need to configure geofencing and emergency contact settings.

To enable the new two-factor authentication, navigate to the Profile section of the settings. You may enable 2FA using a phone number (SMS) or a trusted device under “Login settings” (push notification). With either option, your email address may also be used as a 2FA route. Unfortunately, there is no way to employ an authenticator. It’s not perfect, but it’s better than nothing.

How To Use Arlo App 

To install and utilize your Arlo system, you must have a high-speed Internet connection and the minimum operating system necessary to use the Arlo Secure app or online portal. To retrieve video footage from your Arlo cameras, utilize the Arlo Secure app or online site.

Requirements for connectivity

All Arlo cameras require a high-speed Internet connection, although the amount of bandwidth used by each Arlo camera varies. Bandwidth consumption is calculated per camera. If you have numerous Arlo cameras on the same network, you may estimate the overall bandwidth consumption of your Arlo system by summing the average bandwidth consumption of each camera.

The following are required for your Arlo system:

  • A high-speed Internet connection to support the typical bandwidth demand per camera is as follows:
  • Arlo Ultra Series: Each camera has a 3 Mbps upload speed.
  • 2 Mbps upload per camera with Arlo Pro Series (Pro 3 and newer) and Essential Video Doorbells
  • Almost any other Arlo camera: Upload speed of 1 Mbps per camera
  • If you’re utilizing an Arlo Smart Hub or Base Station, you’ll need an Internet router with an accessible Ethernet connector.
  • Arlo operates with the bare minimum, but functionality and video quality may suffer as a result. With a reduced upstream bandwidth, the video quality is more likely to be pixelated and indistinct. You may also see a delay while launching a live stream.
