Firthermore, if you don’t know about it, then this pair error is something that pops when you’re playing streams from various Kodi add-ons such as Toda, Exodus Redux, etc.

However, there are just a few sources that trouble you with this error, but it is pretty frustrating. Completing the pairing process is something you might not be familiar with.

We’re providing a guide, through which you can get rid of this particular error. This guide will teach to safely, and the steps that we will mention are all easily understandable.

So, let’s overcome now!

How To Fix Pair Error on Kodi – OLPAIR

Further down, I will explain what are the basic reasons due to which this pair error occurs. Before that, let me get you out of this by mentioning the steps. I haven’t relied upon just one method. I have provided a variety of them. So, feel free to adopt whichever method you like.

Solution #1: Pair Your IP Address

If you want to fix the pair error without missing out the standard links from various servers, then you should adopt this method. Most importantly, it’s the simplest method and preferred the max. On the website, you just need to pair up your IP address and popping up of this error will stop in all the devices which are connected to this particular network.

First of all, a VPN is what I recommend you before pairing because when you pair, your original IP address exposes to the content provider, which can further invite issues. For keeping your streaming activities safe, I would recommend ExpressVPN, as it’s the most trusted VPN on the market right now.

Now, you’re using VPN, let’s move further!

If you have Kodi on your smartphone and PC/Laptop connected to a particular network, whose IP add. you’ree pairing, then you’ll overcome the pair error in Kodi simultaneously for both the devices. One needs to pair up after every 4 hours, as that’s the validity limit of the pairing. If you’re unfamiliar with pairing your IP address, then follow the steps!

1.) First of all, let’s recognize the error message (that pops-up when a streaming source asks for pairing).  Following is the pic.

2.) The message will provide you a link. Select the desired browser on your smartphone/PC/laptop, and follow that link. In this guide, I’ll take the OpenLoad Stream Authorization in this guide as an example so that the thing gets more clear.

3.) The open I know some of you might be using Kodi on Fire TV, FireStick,  Fire TV Cube, or other such remote-controlled devices. Now, if your device is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as those remote-controlled devices, then you need to follow the method mentioned below.

4.) You see an “I am not a robot” checkbox several times during various recovery situations, and much more. Here also, you’ll see the same thing. Just tap there on the box. That will take you to a verification process, in which you’ll be given a particular task of choosing the right boxes, or images.

5.) This verification is pretty simple to pass. Once you clear this step, you’ll see a green check mark in the box, on which you tapped before entering this verification process ( the box before “I am not a robot” text.)

6.) Once your IP is paired, the “Pairing successful” message will pop-up. That indicates that the process is complete.

7.) Now onward, you’re IP is going to stay paired for next 4 hours, and after that, you’re supposed to follow the same steps. You’re free to return to Kodi and enjoy streaming.

Whatever you read above was all about dealing with Olpair a.ka. OpenLoad Stream Authorization (which I took as an example of explaining the steps). Below I’m providing you some links in contrast to their names of pairing issues (if you are facing any) that you need to visit and follow the very same method that I mentioned. In short, you just need to change the link as per the name of the pairing issue. Stream Authorization:

Solution #2: Disable The Option “Hosters With Captchas”

The pairing process was undoubtedly pretty simple. Still, if you feel that process was a hassle, then I’ve got another method to cure the same issue.

Here, you need to disable the “Hosters with captchas” option. The negative here is that the user misses out a few of the quality streams from the servers. For e.g. – OpenLoad. Disabling Hosters with all addons’ captchas is simply not possible. Such a setting doesn’t exist.

One needs to deal with each addon one by one. As an example, we’ve considered Exodus addon (one of the most adopted addons). Well, this one works for OpenLoad supporting addons or other servers that ask for pairing. Let’s proceed towards the method now.

1.) Open the addons after visiting Kodi home screen from Add-ons > Video addons.

2.) You’ll see “TOOLS” in the list. Tap on it.

Click on tools

3.) Then tap on the “SETTINGS: Playback” option there and you’re supposed to select it on the left.

SETTINGS – playback

4.) You’ll see a File Hosting Filters section there. Switch its toggle and disable the Hosters with captchas.

5.) Then you’ll see Hosters with captchas disabled. In the next image, you’ll find that all of the OpenLoad streams are gone which were all enabled in our previous pic.

The process is complete now, and you’re free to return to the videos that you were desiring to watch. Any sources which were asking for pairing have all disappeared.

If you’re streaming with Kodi Addons/Builds, then your streaming isn’t hidden from Government and ISP. It means that if you’re involved in streaming illegal stuff (copyright content), you might be dragged by the cops, and even thrown behind bars. If you’re in favor of protecting yourself, then do use VPN. It will not just protect you by bypassing GOVT Surveillance but also ISP throttling a geo-restrictions.

Differentiating between legal and illegal sources is pretty difficult sometimes, and many people fall into streaming of illegal stuff unintentionally. So, it’s better to have a complete knowledge rather than streaming blindly.

Solution #3: Use Real-Debrid To Overcome Kodi Pair Error

Some experts say that integrating real-debris is the easiest way of solving the pair error issue. Avoid using any streaming app before activating this service. There are many out there, but Cinema APK stands the tallest. You can pair it with rear debrid as well as for TV shows/movies. You can easily escape buffering issues by enabling this unrestricted downloader.

How Safe are,, /pair and

We’ve cured the ol.pair issue, and now let’s know more! How safe is openload pairing? It’s a common question, though. As a thumb rule, sources such as and OpenLoad that ask for pairing are entirely safe. If you are an experienced Kodi user like me, then you’ll surely prefer these sources over others.

The only reason for which they verify the user’s IP address is to make sure that only humans are accessing their server.

This is done to prevent the server overloading issue caused by bots hitting attempts. Now, when I say that they do verify your IP address, that clearly means that you’ll be very easily exposed if you are streaming illegal stuff no matter intentionally or unintentionally.

The risk is always high. There is no other use of your IP address for them, but if you host licensed/copyright content, then they’ll expose your IP address to the legal authorities for legal actions.

By routing the traffic through a different server, you can avoid such troubles as you’re assigned an entirely new IP address. VPN services maintain zero log policy and their protocols can’t be penetrated, due to which it becomes impossible to trace your online activities for anyone out there.

The VPN needs to be Kodi-supportive and a fast one. ExpressVPN is a highly reliable one. There are a few other solid VPNs available, but I recommend on the basis of my own experience.

The reasons behind Olpair,,,, Errors on Kodi

We soled the pairing errors in a couple of styles, and nothing was difficult. Still, don’t you think it’s important to know the roots of this issue properly.

How do these issues generate? What are the factors? Let’s know!

No matter you are using Kodi 17.6 Krypton or Kodi 18.3/18.2 Leia, opening the sources from streams such as tvad .me, vidup. Me, Olpair (Openload),, etc. generate an error. For accessing the playback from their streams, they ask you for a pairing process.,, and OpenLoad a.k.a Olpair are the sources from which the best add-ons fetch streaming links.

What actually are OpenLoad & OlPair?

OpenLoad is free to use. As a result, all Kodi users prefer it at some point of time for streaming movies as well as other movie content. OpenLoad is basically a host website that hosts a large variety of video content. Explaining further, Openload always experiences high traffic (because it’s free) that most often becomes difficult to cope up with for the host’s server.

So, avoids entries of fake’ Kodi users and as a result, they ask you for a verified address for regaining access. For dealing with this particular issue, Tknorris (a Kodi develop) brought Olpair into existence. Pairing your Kodi with OpenLoad via the air sites leads to the authentic user data inclusion in the analytics report of the site. A captcha solution is asked form you to make sure you’re truly a human.

After pairing, you’re able to find whatever you are looking for by quick filtering through all the content. You can earn a better experience using Olpair air, and it’s highly reliable.

What’s the job of OpenLoad Pair?

The main job is to save the site from overloading of the user traffic. The other job is to generate a bit of ad revenue for keeping the resources running the streaming service of the site. Pairing helps OpenLoad to figure out which are the fake users because, as a thumb rule, they won’t be able to prove their authenticity.

OpenLoad receives analytic data from the users’ IP info. and then registers them in their server. This also lets the host implement more features as well as services. They are also able to track the user traffic in a better way. Now, bots might freely enter in their sites, but they aren’t able to bypass the forced authentication (captcha).

Captcha troubles a lot of users also, but a barrier is important as if captcha isn’t there, then bots enter and automatically start downloading videos with existing codes and due to that, the site can’t function properly. You aren’t asked for charges for keeping the site running, as the fund comes from ads.

Is OpenLoad Pair Authorization needed for any other reasons also?

Well, besides security and better tracking, there are certain other reasons for OpenLoad Pair Authorization, and one of the major one among those is providing safety. Priding you a smoother user experience is another big reason. Crashing of streaming service is such an unexpected thing, and also a bit frustrating. This pairing cuts off the chances of site crashing also.

This pair authorization increases the bandwidth of OpenLoad in contrast to its competitors. The video content’s volume is massive in OpenLoad, and it attracts a massive number of users. Such high traffic does bring lagging issues, but on OpenLoad, there are pretty less chances of lagging, and a major factor is this pairing only.

The pairing maintains discipline also. Once you’ve paired, the host is familiar with your IP address, and then if you involve yourself in streaming copyright/restricted material, then you might face legal trouble. If legal authorities force such streaming site , then they don’t hesitate in revealing your identity to them.

How Many Times Do I Need To Pair With OpenLoad?

Now, why has OpenLoad implemented the temporary pairing service, I have already explained. However, the pairing process doesn’t consume much time. Still, the question arises, how often does the user need to pair with OpenLoad.

Let me tell you, it isn’t permanent pairing first of all. Four hours is the maximum time given to you to stay paired with the streaming service in one setting. For example, if you’ve paired at 1 PM, then the next time when you need to pair is 5 PM. It might not seem that convenient to a few as no matter small or big, interruption is an interruption.

But this is the only option in OpenLoad’s hands for providing you a better overall streaming experience. Even if you come across some other method by bypassing this pairing authentication, then I would warn you not to go with such methods, as they are most of the time unsafe and not authentic. All we could do is hope for a better solution form OverLoad.
