How to Enable DApp Browser on Trust Wallet

This guide will explain how to enable DApp browser on Trust Wallet. Unfortunately, Trust Wallet removed its DApp browser feature from Apple iOS devices to comply with the new Apple app store guidelines. This change only impacted iOS users who installed the Apple update after June 22nd, 2020, and Android users were unaffected.

So, let’s dive into this guide, where we will help you to reconnect your Trust wallet with DApps such as PancakeSwap and UniSwap.

Connect DApp Browser to Trust Wallet

How to Enable DApp Browser on Trust Wallet

Depending on your device, you’ll have a different user experience when connecting to DApps. This will depend if you’re connecting to the Trust Wallet DApp browser via iOS or Android devices.

In June 2021, Trust Wallet completely removed its DApp browser feature from Apple iOS devices to comply with the new Apple app store guidelines. Fortunately, this change did not affect Android users, and enabling DApps on Android devices is pretty simple. We will provide a guide on how to do this below.

However, Apple iOS is a bit different since Apple banned removing the Trust Wallet DApp browser feature. Fortunately, there are some pretty straightforward options, but it may take time to get used to them.

Trust has now created a new Discover feature for iOS users that is very easy to use. Another option you may already have used with other wallets is WalletConnect. Either way, connecting to DApps on Trust Wallet remains simple and easy.

Option 2: Connect Trust Wallet to DApps with Discover

Due to Trust Wallets’ dispute with Apple and not allowing iOS users to use the DApp browser, Trust released its “Discover” feature. Trust Wallet states the Discover feature should make navigating the world of crypto easier and help users stay on top of the crypto markets.

Our video tutorial above explains how to access and connect to DApps with the Discover tab. Trust Wallet Discover will allow you to view staking options within Trust. You can also view lending/borrowing, Binance Smart Chain tokens, and connect to decentralised apps (DApps) such as Sushiswap and UniSwap from within the wallet.

How to connect to DApps with Trust Wallet using Discover.

  1. Go to your Trust Wallet
  2. At the bottom of the screen, select “Discover.”
  3. Choose the DApp you would like to interact with. If you can’t see the DApp, select “See All” or go back to Option 1 and use WalletConnect.

Option 3: How to Enable DApp Browser on Trust Wallet

Since Trust Wallet removed its DApp Browser from iOS devices, lots of users have been looking for other options. We have mentioned two options already that should work fine. However, there is a way to enable the browser by using the URL trust://browser_enable.

This option will not work if you have updated the software on your mobile device, so you might have to skip this and go back to either WalletConnect or Discover feature.

  1. Open your browser on your Apple iOS device
  2. Paste URL: trust://browser_enable
  3. Trust Wallet DApp browser will now be enabled

  1. Hello,
    Thank you for the tutorial on adding the browser to TrustWallet for iOS users. I was successfully able to complete the steps you outlined and have the browser in the app. However, there are no DApp items listed in the browser. It’s literally blank. I don’t see what was displayed on the mobile in your demo video. What can I do to correct this? Is there a setting in TrustWallet that I need to correct or perhaps another step I need to take?


    1. Thats great you were able to add the DApp browser to Trust wallet, but im not sure why its blank. Is your Trust wallet up to date? Are you able to search the likes of PancakeSwap

    2. As of July 7th, this work around no longer works. After it says open this page in “trust” I just get a browser removal notification saying the in-app browser was removed.

  2. So I tried this and I found the same link and advice elsewhere… but this is no longer working. After you hit open it opens the trust wallet and it says basically it will no longer allow DApp blah blah: so ifs there a new cheat to get around this? Thank you!
