Hello, @livelyoasi18721. What exactly does the message on the app tell? Do you have a screenshot of it? 

 

When pairing the camera with the app, only the camera Wi-Fi is needed. Make sure that the Wi-Fi is enabled on the camera. To do this, go to Preferences, then Connections, then Wireless Connections. Set this to On. The app detects this Wi-Fi network and connects to it. 

 

You may also try manually connecting to the camera's WiFi network from your phone’s WiFi settings. You can find the password by putting the camera in pairing mode, then hitting the Info button on the camera. If applicable, change the Wi-Fi Band on your camera to 2.4GHz.
