Of course. While there may be some concern over using unofficial content, HipStore is entirely safe to use. It has SSL encryption that secures your data, and regular updates ensure that nothing nasty can make its way onto your device – provided you install every update released. You can cover your own back easily – use reputable anti-virus software and a VPN on your device
Struggling to download it?
Unable To Install HipStore Error Fix:
The “Unable to Download” error message has been reported by some users; it is a very common error, and it’s because the installer isn’t official. Apple doesn’t recognize the developer, and that means they don’t trust them. You can do that by following these steps:
- Go into your iOS settings app and open the General section
- Tap Profiles and look for the HipStore profile
- Tap it and tap the Trust button
- Close Settings and try installing HipStore again – you shouldn’t have any trouble now

Frequently Asked Questions:
Then we’ll do our best to answer them
What is HipStore?
It is an unofficial third-party installer, an alternative app store if you like. Filled with loads of apps and games, tweaks, and lots of 3rd-party content, everything is free to use.

- Go to Settings > General > Profiles
- Tap on the profile for the app and then tap Trust
- Close Settings; you won’t get that error again
We’re not done yet
How Do I trust Enterprise Apps?
This is easy to do:
- Go to Settings > General
- Tap Profiles and then go to Enterprise Apps
- Tap on the name of the distributor
- Tap Trust and then go out of Settings app
- eThe Enterprise app will work
HipStore Will Not Verify or Download:
This is because it is unofficial and runs on expired enterprise apps. Apple will revoke these, but the developers keep them updated – likely, you are trying to download while they are updating the certificates. Remove HipStore and wait a while. Try again, and the certificates should have been updated. Also, you may get a similar thing if you don’t delete a stock app before trying to download its unofficial version. If you download unofficial apps, always revoke the official stock version first.
And we’re done
