A Step-by-Step Guide to Enabling the Trust Wallet DApp Browser

As a crypto entrepreneur who uses Trust Wallet daily, the in-app DApp browser provides me easy access to essential decentralized apps for my business. I rely on it for everything from swapping tokens on Uniswap to checking NFTs on OpenSea.

But getting the DApp browser running can be confusing, especially on iOS.

In this article, I‘ll provide a step-by-step guide to enabling the Trust Wallet DApp browser with visuals and tips. I‘ll also highlight the benefits of using DApps and share some of my favorite examples.

Overview of Trust Wallet

For context, Trust Wallet is a mobile crypto wallet launched in 2017 that supports major cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, BNB, and more. It‘s owned by Binance and has over 5 million users worldwide.

I prefer Trust Wallet as an entrepreneur because:

  • It offers a clean, user-friendly interface.
  • The mobile app provides easy access to my crypto on-the-go.
  • It has robust security features like 2FA, pin codes, and biometric login.
  • It supports Web3 DApps seamlessly via WalletConnect.

The DApp browser integration is one of Trust Wallet‘s key features, but it needs to be manually enabled first.

Step-by-Step: How to Enable the DApp Browser

Enabling the browser differs between iOS and Android. Let‘s go through each process.

On Android

Enabling the DApp browser on Trust Wallet for Android takes just a few taps:

  1. Open the Trust Wallet app.
  2. Tap the Settings icon in the bottom right.
  3. Go to Preferences.
  4. Tap on DApp Browser.
  5. Toggle the switch on to enable it.

Here‘s how it looks:

Once enabled, you‘ll see the new Browser icon in your bottom menu.

On iOS

iOS is trickier because Apple restricts use of embedded browsers. You have two options:

Method 1: Using trust://browser_enable

  1. Open the Safari app on your iPhone.
  2. Type trust://browser_enable into the address bar and hit Go.
  3. When prompted, tap Open to open the link in Trust Wallet.
  4. This will enable the in-app browser.

Method 2: Connecting Via WalletConnect

  1. On Safari, navigate to a DApp site like Uniswap.
  2. Choose WalletConnect when connecting your wallet.
  3. A QR code will appear.
  4. In Trust Wallet, go to WalletConnect and scan the QR code.
  5. Approve the connection request.

I recommend method 1 as it‘s faster to enable the browser directly.
