It’s that simple. This simplicity unfortunately does not apply to iOS users, but there are ways to turn things around.
How to Enable Trust Wallet DApp Browser on iPhone Devices
As we 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, depending on your preference.
- Once the browser is open, go to the URL bar and type:
- A pop-up window will appear with “Open this page in “Trust”?” Click “Open”.

There, click on New connection and scan the QR code of the DApp. Once done, you should officially have a connection to the DApp.
