Hi @thornoughton

 

Your camera uses Wi-Fi connection when paired with the GoPro app.

When the connection is active, your phone will switch to the camera's information.

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks!

So please note that Wifi is a communication protocal.

 

Your GoPro Hero 8 uses Wifi to communicate with the GoPro App for Android or the GoPro App for iOS and that's it.

 

You should follow the on screen instructions within the app for connecting your GoPro to your phone or tablet.

I would love to know why my camera seems to keep switching my phones home wifi off when it 'tries' to connect, most of the time unsuccessfully??!
Its very annoying. Is this a common thing for Gopros?? ( Im a new Gopro user/buyer who just got the Hero8 Black)
