Build a WebView

Once you have a Portal instance and you have generated a wallet, you can now create a WebView to interact with dApps using the Portal wallet.

In the example below, we have an Activity that creates an instance of the PortalWebView Fragment and adds it to the view.

class PortalWebViewActivity() : AppCompatActivity() {
  private lateinit var portal: Portal
  private lateinit var webView: PortalWebView

  override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {

    portal = (application as PortalApplication).getPortal()
    val url = ""
    webView = portal.createWebView(url) // This returns an instance of PortalWebView

    // Add the PortalWebView Fragment to the view
    val transaction = supportFragmentManager.beginTransaction()
    transaction.replace(, webView)
  fun goBack() {
    if (webView.canGoBack()) {
      webView.goBack() // Navigates the WebView to the previous page
  fun goForward() {
    if (webView.canGoForward()) {
      webView.goForward() // Navigates the WebView to the next page
  fun reload() {

And thats it! Remember that you will need a portal instance to start the web view and you will also need to initialize Portal with autoApprove: true if you want the web view to auto-approve transactions.

Next, let's explore how to use Portal's Swaps integration to perform swaps directly within your Android app.
