Can't sign into Nest app on iphone XR

Community Member

About a month ago, I lost my ability to log into the Nest App. When I try to sign in using my Google account, the Nest App sends me to the "Make sure you trust Nest" screen, to which I click "Allow". After I click on "Allow", the Nest App returns me to the "Welcome home. Sign in with Google" screen where I started.

* Have used Nest app on my iphoneXR for 3+ years. 

* iphone XR is running on iOS 16.1.2

* I've migrated my account over to Google over a year ago. Never had a problem with signing in after migration.

* Have two different homes on my Nest Account

* Use Nest for smoke detectors, thermostat, and camera's 

* When I launch Google Chrome (on both my iphone and Macbook Pro) and go to, I'm able to sign into my account and see everything on both of my homes. 

* I've deleted and reinstalled the Nest App several times

Any guidance would be very appreciated. Thank you

Hi CKemptonPackard,


I’m sorry you’re having trouble with your Nest app. No worries, we’ll sort this out — a few questions: is your iOS version up to date? Is there a pending iOS update? Also, do you have another phone to test your Nest app’s functionality?

Here are some troubleshooting steps you can try:


  • Check for software updates on your phone. Obsolete OS versions may break some app functionality.
  • Switch your connection from Wi-Fi to cellular data then try signing in again to your Nest app.
  • Restart your phone. Turn it off for 60 seconds. Then, turn it on.
  • Try another device if your Nest app works with no issues.

Let me know how it goes.
