How to change slippage on the Uniswap Web app

Price Slippage is the change in token price caused by the total movement of the market.


Price Slippage is shown as the difference between the price you expect to receive after swapping vs what you actually receive after the swap is complete.


The auto slippage percentage will be set to be between 0.1% and 5% depending on the network cost and swap size. The auto slippage is designed to give you the best swap outcome.


However, you can always enter your own desired slippage for a swap.


How to change the slippage in the swap settings:

  1. Select the settings icon.

  2. Select the slippage drop-down.


  3. Here you can switch between “Auto” and “Custom” slippage. Switching to Custom allows you to enter your own slippage for your swap.


How to view the slippage in the swap details:

  1. Enter your desired swap, and then select the arrow to expand the swaps details.

  2. Here you can see your swaps current slippage, it is listed as “Maximum slippage”.


Note: If your slippage is set too low, your transaction may revert or fail.


If your slippage is set too high then you may get less tokens than expected when swapping.


For example, if your slippage is set to 25% then you may receive 25% less tokens than what is shown to you in the swap preview.
