Notification API Error: 'User Not Logged In'

I’ve been trying to build a server that will send out push notifications to my expo app.

Right now, my fetch request keeps getting the following error:
{ err: ‘Not logged in.’,
_isApiError: true,

Do I need to login on my server? If so, how?


Hi @matthewjgunton, this is the response from the Expo API, or from your own server?

Have you tried looking at the Expo server SDKs?

I’m making a fetch post request to the Expo API from my server.
My request is returning that error

Can you share the request? I haven’t seen this before

Below is the function on my server

function sendNotification(token){

return new Promise((resolve, reject)=> {
reject(“invalid token”);

const PUSH_ENDPOINT = "";

  method: 'POST',
  headers: {
    Accept: 'application/json',
    'Content-Type': 'application/json',
  body: JSON.stringify({
    to: token,
    sound: 'default',
    title: 'Greetings!',
    body: 'from me!'
.then(response => response.json())
.then( (data) => {
}).catch( (e)=> {



No, I just sent a notification through my CLI without being logged in to any Expo account.

Can you try sending from your CLI rather/with the Expo PN tool and see if those work? Also, try removing the sound field from your body
