yet the SmartThings Status page says everything is operational … Anyone know what is going on ?

Same here in the US right now (6:05am EST).

Mine looked OK but I just wandered off for a few minutes and when I returned my app had been signed out automatically which as far as I knew wasn’t even a thing. Attempting to sign-in again left me on a Samsung account page that just looped back to itself whether I opted to ‘Continue’ or ‘Cancel’.

It did just sort itself out though (at about 11:26am UK time).

Canada too ( 6:21 am EST)

I had just posted in another section.

Same hear in US (6:32 AM EDST)

My app has been flaky for an hour or so in U S. My zigbee buttons still work…

Looks like it’s working again. Both the app and web browser. 6:35 am EST

Anybody else having trouble logging in to their ST account on my,

I first noticed trouble with the app on my ipad. It won’t connect. So I tried logging in to using the ipad browser. I get the 2FA code on my phone, but then I just get an error like this

I’ve tried from the browser on my ipad, my android phone, and my Windows desktop, all fail, though I get a different reference id each time.

Thankfully, my ST app on my phone which is my primary device still seems to be working.

Any ideas?

It’s a problem for everyone right now:

Thanks for confirming. I tried searching the community first befor posting, but didn’t see this message.

Of course the Smartthings status site says everything is operational.

And I emailed support, and their reply to my inquiry “is there was a problem” was to tell me to uninstall and reinstall the app.

IN Holland everything is OK. Even differtent browsers. I Use 2FA btw

Yup, working again in US.

Yeh now working again… be nice to know what it was …

The symptoms weren’t helpful. As local routines were still running, the first sign was presence not updating (although flaky at the best of times). The app just threw a message that I’d been logged out and however many times I logged in I got the same unhelpful error. The app then starting showing its initial onboarding - with no devices or routines. Luckily later on it started working by itself - but I’m not sure presence is fixed.
