Re: I can log in but not on my ipad

I am having a virtually identical issue.

 

"what device are you currently on?" My Samsung moto e6

 

"What Roku Smart Home device are you using right now?" Roku Smart Home Outdoor Wired Camera SE

 

"Where are you trying to sign in?" I was trying to log into the Roku Smart Home App, but now The Roku App (Official) is doing the same thing. I can sign in to those apps on all other devices, with the same sign in information I'm providing for the apps on this phone. Changed my password several times, but still get the same prompt, that it doesn't match records. I've also tried copying the sign in info directly from the password manager, AND typing it out without using an option from the suggested sign in information that's saved.

 

This is the furthest I've gotten in the troubleshooting process, because before now, in the help/support section, I'd get as far as the article that might help, click on it, and I'd get an error screen. That screen would state that the page couldn't be view bc it might have too high of a traffic volume. The suggestion was to try back later, and if the error page persists to contact the web master. Unfortunately, the contact information was jumbled up and overlapping preventing me from seeing it legibly or even being able to copy and paste it.

 

I'd appreciate help in troubleshooting to a solution, because I've tried everything short of cancelling my subscription and returning the device. I was able to sign in at one point, I don't have any VPN, firewalls, or anything of likeness that would be preventing it from working. I hadn't changed any settings prior to the problem starting either. I can sign in to the sites on my browser with the same information too on this device, no issues. @RokuEuniceL

Re: I can log in but not on my ipad

Correction, my smart phone is a Motorola Moto e6, not Samsung. After browsing more, I did happen upon some information that it was a know issue that was being working on. I've been having trouble with it for a couple of weeks now for the smart home app, but the official Roku app started doing it today. From what I've seen, some community members replied that the problem was resolved for them this past Friday/Saturday.

Re: I can log in but not on my ipad

Hi @HornedAndWinged,

We're really sorry for the inconvenience. Could you tell us if you've tried updating the app and see if that helps? But if still no luck, we would appreciate it if you could provide with us the details below.

  • Mobile device brand, model, and OS
  • App build version.

Once we have this information, we'll be able to forward it to the appropriate Roku team.

Keep us posted!

Thanks,

Rey

Re: I can log in but not on my ipad

@RokuERey

 

Regarding your inquiry about updates, here what I've got:

 

When the problem started there were no updates available, so the apps were up to date.

 

I have limited space available so I frequently uninstall and reinstall apps to shuffle between whichever app I might need at the time, if it's not accessible through my Google chrome browser. Before the problem started, Roku smart home app was used frequently, so it hadn't uninstalled much of at all. The official Roku app usually only stays on my phone when my Roku TV remote is missing because of the universal remote, or if I need the private listen function during times when sensory deprivation takes place with my headphones.

 

Since the problem started, I have uninstalled the smart home app long enough to finish what other apps were intended for, then reinstalled it soon thereafter so I could keep checking if problem resolved itself. This means that upon every reinstall the app would be up to date. My TV remote has been missing for a while, so the official app has seldomly been uninstalled. I affirm, that when I composed this reply, 10/05, 10:11pm Central time, there were no new updates for either, so they are both up to date.

 

Regarding my smart phone's Brand, Model, to reiterate from my last comments above, it's a Motorola s6. The operating system it uses is Android 9.

 

Smart home app version 2.2.0.169

 

The Roku official app version 9.7.0.2302062

 

If the build number your required for s different than the version numbers I provided, then can you please direct me to where that number can be found.

 

I also wanted to mention that I can still use the Roku official app, while it's not signed in. It's only once I try to sign in to the official and the smart home apps where the problem is. I can sign in to the same account when accessing the chrome browser. All other devices for my house hold have no issue.

 

Look forward to hearing from you again as you have helped me the most since the problem started.o

Re: I can log in but not on my ipad

Thanks @RokuJanadeeK 

 

The turn over time for response exceeded my expectations! Approximately how long should it take to hear from someone who is handling it from here, and in which way should I expect them to make contact?

Re: I can log in but not on my ipad

After a day or two wait, attempting to log in every so often, eventually I was able to log in. Since it's an internal issue that the developers are addressing, if others have done everything specified previously, I'd recommend providing all the requested information above, so they can forward it to the appropriate personnel. I forgot to give to send a reply when it resolved.
