In a recent Trust Wallet tutorial, we mentioned the DApp (Decentralized Application) browser feature was no longer available for Apple iOS users. This change only impacted those on iOS that installed the update after June 22nd, 2020, and Android users were unaffected. Trust Wallet stated that they removed this DApp feature to comply with the new App Store Guidelines.
Fortunately, there is a way to add the DApp browser back into your Trust Wallet so that you can connect to your favorite Dapps via your wallet. By following these steps you will be able to add the DApp browser to the Trust Wallet.
The Trust Wallet browser is a fully functional Web3 browser that can be used to interact with any DApp. Plus it provides a simple and secure connection between you and any Binance Smart Chain, or the Ethereum based DApps. Including the likes of PancakeSwap, SushiSwap and Uniswap.
How to Add DApp Browser to Trust Wallet iOS
To get started you’ll first need to have the Trust Wallet installed. If you’re not familiar with the Trust Wallet you can check out my tutorial below. Or if you don’t already have a Binance account check out my post that could get you up to 45% off your trading fees.
This guide only applies to iOS users, and Android users should already have the DApp browser available.
Step 1: Open your Safari browser on your iOS device & type in the URL: trust://browser_enable, then select “Go”.
Step 2: When prompted to “Open this page in “Trust”?” Choose “Open“.
Step 3:Trust Wallet App will launch & the DApp browser will now be enabled.
Step 4: Go to the bottom of the App & you will now see the “Browser” feature available from the menu.
Trust Wallet Tutorial
If you’re not yet familiar with the Trust Wallet and you’d like to get started, then check out my tutorial. Which takes you through a Trust Wallet overview, then how to create a new wallet, send, receive trade, stake and hold your crypto-collectibles and NFTs.
Trust Wallet App is the official digital wallet from Binance. It’s a decentralised, secure crypto mobile wallet where you can buy, store, exchange and earn crypto.
In this tutorial, I provide a step-by-step guide on how to use the Trust Wallet App. I explain how to download and secure your crypto wallet. Then go through the process of how to send, receive and stake to earn interest on your crypto assets. I also show how to connect to DApps using the WalletConnect feature.
Trust wallet is a decentralized, secure cryptocurrency mobile wallet. The wallet allows users to buy, store, exchange, and earn crypto. It was founded in 2017 by Viktor Radchenko with a focus to ‘build a better interface for storing and accessing funds, as well as laying the infrastructure for other developers to build DApps.” It was originally built to support tokens in the Ethereum ecosystem but now supports 40 other blockchains.
Trust wallet was acquired by Binance in July 2018 to provide better services and enhance safety for its users. With this partnership, Trust Wallet now also integrates with BSC (Binance Smart Chain).
Trust Wallet App
Currently, the Trust Wallet is only available on mobile and downloadable for Android and Apple devices. With this, you are then able to use the app on your phone/tablet and access your crypto easily, on the go.
If you already have a mobile wallet, you can also use the app to move all your crypto assets over to Trust Wallet.
The Trust Wallet currently supports all the major cryptocurrencies, including Ethereum ERC20 tokens. Overall the Trust Wallet App supports more than +160K assets as well as 40 different blockchains.
You can see the current list of cryptocurrencies supported by the wallet below, which are correct at the time of this writing.
How to Buy Crypto with Trust Wallet
Trust Wallet use third-party providers such as MoonPay, which is integrated into the app. This allows users to easily buy crypto with a credit or debit card. Obviously, this option won’t be the cheapest way to buy crypto, but it is easy and convenient.
Simply enter the amount that you’d like to buy in USD and the amount of crypto you’ll receive will be shown underneath which will include the fees. You can then choose your payment provider and it’ll show you the rate for each.
You’ll need to follow the instructions on screen by the 3rd party providers. Just be aware that depending on the type of crypto you purchase, there might be a delay before you receive the crypto into your wallet.
Because Trust Wallet is private, it doesn’t save any information you provide. The 3rd party provider processes the transaction on their end and then sends the crypto to your wallet once the payment is confirmed.
Now, this is a convenient way to buy your crypto but this won’t be the cheapest. Therefore it’s not a way that I’d personally use or recommend as you’ll definitely be paying a premium here.
If you want to sell your crypto and “cash out” to a bank or a card you will need to send your crypto across to an exchange like Binance or FTX. It’s not possible to sell and withdraw from the Trust Wallet App.
DApps integration is a newer feature for the Trust Wallet. With the app, you are able to access web3 applications on Binance Smart Chain or Ethereum network. Trust works with the developers of the individual DApps to ensure the best possible user experience. Because of this, each DApp that is integrated has been vetted and optimized for the Trust wallet.
Unfortunately, Trust Wallet had to remove this feature for their iOS users to comply with the Apple App Store guidelines. However, Android users are unaffected by this.

The DApp (Decentralized Application) browser feature is no longer available for Trust Wallet users on Apple iOS users. However, there is a way around this, check out our guide on how to add the DApp browser to the Trust Wallet on Apple iOS devices.
Trust Wallet NFTs
NFTs are also supported within the Trust Wallet app. These are ‘Crypto Collectables‘ that are sometimes represented as avatars or computer-generated works of art. These collectibles are associated with a public address and are secured on the Blockchain within the wallet.
Trust Wallet provides you an easy way to store and access all your crypto-collectibles and NFTs with peace of mind and security. Over the last few years, there have been various versions of crypto-collectibles such as the likes of CryptoKitties, Decentraland, and Lordless. Plus more recently there’s been a rise in interest with NFTs.
To store your NFTs or collectibles within the Trust Wallet, simply click ´Receive´ and you’ll be prompted with a QR code and address to send across to.
Staking on the Trust Wallet
One of the reasons I personally use the Trust Wallet App is its staking feature. Where I currently stake my Binance BNB tokens and earn +20% APR. When staking BNB on Trust Wallet the APR will depend on the validator you choose and does change over time.
Staking is beneficial for earning interest in your crypto or having a say in the governance of a particular coin. Unfortunately, not every token is available to stake and earn rewards.
You can currently stake; BNB, ATOM, KAVA, ALGO, TRX, VET, TOMO, XTZ, CLO and IOTX.
If you’re interested in how to make money from the Trust wallet, you can check out their Staking Calculator. Which will provide you with an estimate on daily, monthly, and yearly earnings.
When staking with the Trust Wallet, you’ll need to choose the validator that you’d like to delegate your stake to. You can view a list of validators and their current rates and its worth doing some research into who these validators are before staking with them.
Just be aware that when you’re staking your tokens you cant remove them from the wallet or exchange them, as they’ll be locked for a set period.
Unstaking with Trust Wallet
The process of unstaking your tokens can only be done after 3 days of the last staking transaction. The unstaking of your tokens will stop the rewards from being generated. Once the unstaking is confirmed, your tokens will be transferrable.
WalletConnect is an open-source protocol for connecting decentralized applications to mobile wallets with QR code scanning or deep linking. Users can interact securely with any Dapp from their Trust Wallet, making it a safer choice compared to desktop or browser extension wallets.
By using WalletConnect you wont be asked for your private key or wallet seed words, please never share this information with anyone.
The great thing about Trust wallet is that it is open-sourced, so anyone can view the code. They are also audited by Stateful, a security firm whose report on the wallet you can find here.
Metamask vs Trust Wallet
MetaMask is similar to Trust wallet in the fact that it also supports DApps which is why it is compared. It can also be connected to the Binance Smart Chain much like the Trust Wallet. Although they are both Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain blockchain compatible wallets, they do have some differentiators.
Metamask is available as a browser and on mobile, whilst the Trust wallet is mobile-only. As we know, the Trust Wallet supports more than just Ethereum and you are able to earn interest by staking, hold NFTs and swap/exchange. This is not yet available on Metamask.
