My camera’s wifi turns off by itself when not paired, and if I try to pair, I cannot get the camera out of the settings view using my cell phone, so I cannot control the gopro after supposedly pairing. The camera screen still shows no pairing, and if I get it out of the settings screen using the camera, I lose the wifi connection.
How to pair solved: use another device that has the wifi password. Let that device connect to the camera’s wifi while you try to pair with your cell phone, and it will pair.

Thank you for sharing. Great to know that you were able to pair your camera with the phone. It is odd though to be using a extra device for the pairing process as the camera and the phone alone should be enough for connectivity to be established.

Absolutely nothing worked but what I posted, and I really have no reason to mess with my camera again and try something else. What I did already worked twice for me. My only reason for posting was for other people with my same issue to know how to make the pairing
