What are DApps on Trust Wallet?

DApps on Trust Wallet stand for decentralized applications.

The DApp browser is a Web3 browser that allows you to use decentralized applications like PancakeSwap.

If you’re using an iPhone/iOS device, you need to manually enable it.

On PancakeSwap, you’ll be able to swap tokens like BNB for Safemoon.

The DApp browser provides a user-friendly and secure connection between you and a decentralized application.

Its interface is mobile-responsive which is easy to use.

The list of decentralized applications is limited, but Trust Wallet is gradually expanding it.

This is because their goal is to forge a community of decentralized applications that anyone can use.

Trust Wallet is working with developers to provide the best experience for users.

Is the DApp browser removed from iOS on Trust Wallet?

As of June 2021, the DApp browser is completely removed from iOS devices on Trust Wallet.

This is to comply with the App Store guidelines so that Trust Wallet can continue offering its services to you.

However, if you’ve enabled the DApp browser on your iOS device before June 2021, you’ll still be able to access it via the “History” section.

In addition, your funds and collectibles will still be accessible by you.

Unfortunately, the removal of the DApp browser is compulsory for future updates of Trust Wallet.

If you’re using an Android device, you won’t be affected by this.

However, if you’re using an iOS device, there are a couple of alternative solutions to access DApps:

  • You can use an Android device to access Trust Wallet.
  • Visit PancakeSwap on a mobile browser (e.g. Safari), tap on Connect > WalletConnect > Trust > Open > Connect > Go back to PancakeSwap on your browser.

This is because the DApp browser is still enabled for Android devices.

The second method is to use WalletConnect to connect to Trust Wallet on PancakeSwap.

Conclusion

Enabling the DApp browser on iPhone/iOS devices can be tricky because it requires you to use a browser.

On the other hand, Android devices need not enable the DApp browser via a browser as it can be enabled on the app via the “Preferences” setting.

You can navigate to the DApp browser by tapping on the “Browser” icon on the bottom navigation bar of the app.

Then, you’ll be able to use decentralized applications on Trust Wallet such as PancakeSwap and Uniswap.
