GoPro App: How to Pair the Action Camera with the Mobile Phone

Pairing GoPro with your mobile phone through GoPro App allows you to control your camera in a simpler way. Once connected, your smartphone starts to display everything the action cam lens is capturing, eliminating the use of the BacPac Touch LCD accessory on models that do not have an integrated display. The feature is available for free for Android and iPhone (iOS).

In addition, the application encompasses a number of functions, such as shifting capture and sharing of photos and videos directly with Instagram Stories. In the following walkthrough, learn how to pair GoPro with the app.

Step 6. The GoPro App will locate the Wi-Fi network and start the connection with the camera. A box for entering the password created from GoPro will appear. Enter the code and press "Continue". If you have not created a password, it will be "goprohero" on Hero2, Hero3 and 3+ models. In GoPro Hero4 (Session, Silver and Black), Hero + and Hero + LCD, you must enter the PIN displayed on the camera screen. For other versions, see the manual for the default Android password (iOS does not require a password);
