My Branch universal link which is posted on Facebook : https://testapplink.test-app.link/BnEYOV0ipD  Clicking it opens the App store instead of the installed app. I am using branch.io.

It seems to be an issue with the Universal Link setup. Please use our Universal Links validator here: branch.io/resources/universal-links/

Also, our guide on troubleshooting Universal Links should come in handy: https://dev.branch.io/getting-started/universal-app-links/support/ios/#troubleshooting-universal-links

If you still face issues in getting this work, please reach out to our integrations team here.

Wierd, in my case I got the app opened once, that it stopped working and started opening the App Store app again. One extra detail, the app is being installed via XCode or Testflight on device.
