How to Connect Uniswap to Trust Wallet

On Uniswap, you can swap Ethereum for another token.

But before you can do so, you need to connect a wallet to Uniswap first.

Then, you’ll be able to use your wallet’s Ethereum to swap for another token.

Uniswap allows you to connect to several wallets including “MetaMask” and “WalletConnect”.

However, you might have noticed that there isn’t a “Trust Wallet” option.

Moreover, in June 2021, Trust Wallet has removed the DApp browser.

This is in compliance with Apple’s App Store Guidelines.

Hence, you won’t be able to use the DApp browser on Trust Wallet.

Instead, you need to use Uniswap on a browser like Safari or Chrome.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to connect Uniswap to Trust Wallet on a mobile browser like Safari or Chrome.

How to connect Uniswap to Trust Wallet

To connect Uniswap to Trust Wallet, open Uniswap on a mobile browser and tap on “Connect Wallet”.

Then, you can use WalletConnect to connect to Trust Wallet.

After you’ve connected Uniswap to Trust Wallet, you’ll be able to swap Ethereum for another token.

However, you need to have some Ethereum on Trust Wallet first.

If you don’t, you can buy it from Binance and withdraw it to your Ethereum wallet on Trust Wallet.

Since the removal of the DApp browser on Trust Wallet in June 2021, you won’t be able to use Uniswap on Trust Wallet.

Hence, you need to use Uniswap on a browser instead.

If you’re using a mobile device, you can visit Uniswap on Safari or Chrome.

On the Uniswap exchange, you can connect to Trust Wallet by using WalletConnect.

Here’s how to connect Uniswap to Trust Wallet:

  1. Open Uniswap & connect to “WalletConnect”
  2. Connect to “Trust”
  3. Connect Trust Wallet to Uniswap

1. Open Uniswap & connect to “WalletConnect”

Connect wallet to Uniswap

The first step is to open Uniswap and connect to “WalletConnect”.

Firstly, open a mobile browser like Safari or Chrome.

In this guide, we’ll use the Safari browser.

If you’re using an Android device, you can open Chrome instead.

Once you’re on a mobile browser, go to the Uniswap website.

On the swapping page, you’ll see a “Connect Wallet” button.

Tap on the “Connect Wallet” button.

You can also tap on the “Connect to a wallet” button at the bottom of the page.

After you’ve tapped on “Connect Wallet” or “Connect to a wallet”, a navigation drawer will open.

On the navigation drawer, you’ll be able to connect to three different wallets.

The wallets include “WalletConnect”, “Open in Coinbase Wallet”, and “Fortmatic”.

You might have noticed that there isn’t a “Trust Wallet” option.

Hence, you need to use WalletConnect to connect Uniswap to Trust Wallet.

Tap on “WalletConnect” to open WalletConnect.

2. Connect to “Trust”

This includes “Rainbow”, “Trust”, “Argent”, and others.

Tap on “Trust” to connect to Trust Wallet.

If you’re using Uniswap on a desktop browser, a QR code will appear.

You need to scan the QR code using the QR code scanner on Trust Wallet.

You can find it by navigating to Trust Wallet > Settings > WalletConnect.

After you’ve scanned the QR Code, tap on “Connect” to connect Trust Wallet to Uniswap.

After you’ve tapped on “Trust”, a pop-up message will open.

Here’s the pop-up message, “Open in “Trust”?”.

The pop-up message prompts you to open the page on Trust Wallet.

Tap on “Open” to open the page on Trust Wallet.

After you’ve tapped on “Open”, Trust Wallet will open.

On Trust Wallet, you’ll be prompted to connect to the Uniswap Interface.

Tap on “Connect” to connect to the Uniswap interface.

If you don’t see the “Connect” button, it means that you’re experiencing a loading issue.

To fix this, force close the Trust Wallet app and repeat the second step.

Force closing the Trust Wallet app will fix most loading issues.

Uniswap and Trust Wallet

After you’ve tapped on “Connect”, go back to Uniswap on your mobile browser.

If the connection is successful, you’ll see your Trust Wallet address at the bottom of the page.

In other words, the “Connect to a wallet” button needs to be replaced with your Trust Wallet address.

If the connection is not successful, you’ll still see the “Connect to a wallet” button.

If that’s the case, you need to repeat the steps again.

Now that you’ve connected Trust Wallet to Uniswap, you’ll be able to swap tokens!

Keep in mind that you need to have a sufficient Ethereum balance to swap for another token.

If you don’t have Ethereum, you need to buy it from a cryptocurrency exchange like Binance and transfer it to Trust Wallet first.

Conclusion

Uniswap allows you to connect to several cryptocurrency wallets.

The exchange does not have a “Trust Wallet” option, but you can use “WalletConnect” to connect to Trust Wallet.

Ever since the removal of the DApp browser on Trust Wallet for iOS devices, you can only use Uniswap on a browser.

Alternatively, you can use another cryptocurrency wallet like MetaMask to connect it to Uniswap.
