We have received reports of users having difficulties connecting their Ambire Wallets with various dApps via WalletConnect.
The most common issue is that although the dApp shows successful connection with Ambire Wallet, when you request an approval, try to sign a transaction or initiate any other action that requires signing in the wallet, it does not appear in your Ambire account.
How to find if you are experiencing the same issue
- Connect your dApp with Ambire Wallet and make sure that you have Ambire Wallet open in just one tab. If you have multiple tabs with Ambire Wallet open, close them until you only have the one.
- Try to request the action that needs to be signed.
- If the requested action does not appear in your Ambire Wallet, go back to the dApp tab and open the "Developer tools/console". Shortcut is (Cmd ⌘ + Alt ⌥ + i) for iOS or (Ctrl + Shift + i) for Windows.
- Open the "Console" tab, paste the code below in the search field and press "Enter":
- You should see a text similar to this:
