Trust Wallet DApp Browser is a Web3 browser from Trust Wallet, a popular non-custodial wallet for storing non-fungible cryptocurrencies and tokens (NFTs). The browser allows users to interact with all decentralized applications (DApps) across various networks without interruption.

In this article, we will teach you how to enable DApp Trust Wallet browser easily, just follow the steps below. First, however, we need to understand some basic concepts.

What is a DApp browser?

Decentralized Application Browsers (DApps) (also known as web browsers3), as the name suggests, are essentially a bridge for users who want to interact with different DApps, such as Uniswap and PancakeSwap, on their devices. A popular Web3 browser is Trust DApp Browser

DApp browsers are available for Android and iOS devices, but it may be difficult to access DApps from your phone, particularly for iPhone users due to Apple’s App Store guidelines.

Now that we understand these fundamentals, let’s see how to enable Trust DApp Browser on your mobile device.

How to enable the DApp Trust Wallet browser on Android devices

Assuming you have already downloaded Trust Wallet to your phone and have already connected to your addresses or created a new address, you simply need to tap the Trust Wallet icon to open the app. Here’s how to proceed:

  1. Once the app is loaded, go to Settingslocated in the navigation bar at the bottom.
  2. Click on Preferences and then enable the DApp Browser option by tapping the “enable” button.
  3. Once enabled, you will see the DApp browser in the Trust Wallet dashboard.

Here’s how simple it is. This simplicity doesn’t apply to iOS users, unfortunately, but there are a few ways to turn things around.

As mentioned, Trust Wallet was forced to remove the DApp browser due to App Store guidelines. First, you’ll need to use a browser – it can be Chrome or Safari, whichever you prefer.

trust: // browser_enable

  1. A pop-up window will appear with “Open this page in” Trust “?” Click “Open”.
  2. This will redirect you to the Trust Wallet app and enable the DApp browser.

However, if that doesn’t work, try updating your Trust Wallet app.

Closing thoughts

FAQ

I am receiving an “Unsupported Deep Link Message” – what should I do?

If you get this message while trying to enable the browser with the URL, it is very likely that you are using an older version of Trust Wallet. Please update the app and try again.

Why is it harder to enable Trust Browser on iOS?

Trust Wallet removed the DApp Browser option from its iOS version of the app due to a clash with Apple’s App Store guidelines. The only way to enable the browser option on the app is to use Safari and type the URL we mentioned earlier. Only works for iOS – Android users just need to go to Settings and enable the Browser DApp option.

Is Trust Wallet safe?

Trust Wallet is a secure cryptocurrency app and wallet overall. It implements a wide range of security methods and allows users to enable 2FA, facial recognition, passwords, and more. It is also non-custodial, which means that the private keys of your encryption belong to you and not to the app.

What is a decentralized exchange?

A decentralized exchange (DEX) is a type of DeFi (decentralized finance) platform that allows users to buy, sell, trade, trade, stake and grow cryptocurrencies and many other options.

They are a popular alternative to centralized exchanges (CEX) as they use a different pricing model; CEXs use orders and DEXs use Automated Market Makers (AMMs).

DEXs also offer users a wide range of liquidity pools, which are essentially smart contracts where users deposit a couple of tokens hoping to maximize returns.
