We prove an asymptotic formula for the sum $\sum _{n\leq N}d(n^{2}-1)$, where $d(n)$ denotes the number of divisors of $n$. During the course of our proof, we also furnish an asymptotic formula for the sum $\sum _{d\leq N}g(d)$, where $g(d)$ denotes the number of solutions $x$ in $\mathbb{Z}_{d}$ to the equation $x^{2}\equiv 1~(\text{mod}~d)$.
