One of the best features of Trust Wallet is the ability to use decentralized applications on it.
However, some users are unable to do this due to an error.
Do you also get an alert when you try to enable the DApp browser on Trust Wallet?
Here is the full error message, “Deep Link is not supported”.
The error message only occurs on iOS devices after a Trust Wallet update.
Android devices are not affected by the update.
Direct links allow you to access other applications on Trust Wallet such as PancakeSwap.
So, the error message suggests that direct links are not available, why is this so?
Why am I getting the error “Deep Link is not supported” on Trust Wallet?
You get the error “Deep Link is not supported” on Trust Wallet because the DApp browser is no longer supported on iOS devices.
In May 2021, Trust Wallet removed the DApp browser on iOS devices to comply with the new App Store guidelines.
Trust Wallet must comply with the App Store guidelines to stay on it.
Apple reviewed that Trust Wallet violated the App Store Review Guideline 4.7 5.5k.
So, the DApp browser has been removed from the iOS version of Trust Wallet.
A quick solution for this is to use Trust Wallet on an Android device.
If you don’t have an Android device, you can follow the guide below to ignore the “Deep Link is not supported” error.
How to Fix ‘Deep Link Is Not Supported’ on Trust Wallet
To fix “Deep Link is not supported” on Trust Wallet, you need to switch to the decentralized exchange you want to use (e.g. PancakeSwap) on a browser.
Then, you need to link Trust Wallet to the decentralized exchange.
After connecting Trust Wallet, you will be able to use the decentralized exchange to exchange tokens!
Since the DApp browser is removed in the iOS version of Trust Wallet, it is no longer possible to enable it.
So, you can only use decentralized exchanges on a browser (which is more of a workaround than a fix).
Here’s how to fix “Deep Link is not supported” on Trust Wallet:
1. Go to the exchange you want to use and link your wallet
The first step is to switch to the decentralized exchange you want to use and connect Trust Wallet to it.
PancakeSwap is one of the most popular decentralized exchanges, so we will use it as an example.
Although you can’t use decentralized exchanges on Trust Wallet (since deep linking is no longer supported), you can still connect to them.
To do this, you need to open a browser such as Safari or Chrome.
Then, go to the decentralized exchange you want to use (e.g. PancakeSwap).
Once you are on the exchange, you need to connect Trust Wallet to it.
For example, if you’re using PancakeSwap, tap “Connect Wallet.”
If you are using Uniswap, you must also tap on “Connect Wallet”.
2. Tap “WalletConnect”
After tapping “Connect Wallet”, a pop-up will open.
The pop-up contains a grid list of wallets that you can connect to.
This includes “MetaMask”, “WalletConnect”, “Trust Wallet” and “Other”.
Do not touch “Trust Wallet” as there are some problems with it.
Instead, tap on “WalletConnect”.
WalletConnect is used to connect blockchain wallets (such as Trust Wallet) to decentralized applications.
3. Tap “Trust”
After tapping on “WalletConnect”, you will see another list of grid wallets that you can connect to.
This includes “Rainbow”, “Trust”, “Argent” and many others.
WalletConnect supports more than 75 wallets.
Since you are using Trust Wallet, tap “Trust” to connect to it.
4. Open in “Trust”
After tapping on “Trust”, a pop-up message will appear.
Here’s what it says, “Open in “Trust”?”.
There are a couple of options including “Cancel” and “Open”.
Tap “Open” to open the page on Trust Wallet.
5. Tap “Connect”
After tapping “Open”, Trust Wallet will open.
Now you need to allow PancakeSwap to connect to your wallet.
This is necessary for PancakeSwap to view your wallet balance and activity.
Tap “Connect” to allow PancakeSwap to connect to Trust Wallet.
Then, go back to the decentralized exchange on your browser.
6. Start using the exchange
After tapping “Connect”, your wallet will be successfully connected to PancakeSwap.
Now you will be able to use PancakeSwap without needing the DApp browser on Trust Wallet.
To use PancakeSwap, tap “Select a currency” and import the token you want to buy.
You can do this by copying the token address to CoinMarketCap and pasting it into the “Search name or paste address” field.
Then, you will be able to exchange BNB for the token.
Keep in mind that you must have a sufficient BNB on Trust Wallet for your transactions to be successful.
You have successfully learned an alternative solution to use decentralized applications without the DApp browser on Trust Wallet!
As mentioned in the article, the DApp browser is no longer available on iOS devices.
This is why you get the “Deep Link is not supported” alert when you try to enable it.
So, you can no longer use decentralized applications on Trust Wallet if you are using an iPhone.
Android devices are not affected as the DApp browser does not violate Google Play policies.
Plus, your funds and collectibles are safe.
If you’re using an iPhone, you can import Trust Wallet to Android to regain access to the DApp browser.
If you don’t have an Android device, you need to follow the guide above to use decentralized exchanges.
