How do I enable or disable push notifications on my Android device?

You can enable and disable push notifications at three levels: the mode level, the Arlo app level, and the Android system level.

  • To receive some Arlo notifications, but only in certain modes, edit the notification settings for each Arlo mode that isn’t sending you the desired notifications.
  • To start or stop receiving all Arlo notifications for a while, enable or disable Arlo notifications in the Arlo app.
  • If you always want to receive Arlo notifications or never want to receive Arlo notifications, enable or disable notifications at the Android system level.

To enable or disable push notifications for a mode:

  1. Launch the Arlo app on your Android device.
  2. Tap Mode.
  3. Select the device for which you want to edit notification settings.
  4. Tap the pencil icon next to the mode that you want to edit.
  5. Tap the pencil icon next to the rule that you want to edit.
  6. Select or clear the check box next to Push Notifications.
    You still receive email alerts if they are selected for that mode.

To enable or disable Arlo notifications at the Arlo app level:

  1. Launch the Arlo app on your Android device.
  2. Tap the menu icon ().
  3. Tap Settings > Notifications.
  4. Tap Notification Tone.
  5. Select None.
  6. Tap OK.
  7. Move the slider next to Vibrate to disable.
    You do not receive Arlo push notifications until you log back in to the Arlo app. You still receive email alerts if they are selected in your camera's active mode.

To enable or disable push notifications at the Android system level:

  1. On your Android device, tap Apps > Settings > MORE.
  2. Tap Application manager > DOWNLOADED.
