Stealth (XST)

  Stealth (XST) is no longer supported in Ledger Live

You are no longer able to add Stealth accounts in Ledger Live. For now, there is no compatible third-party wallet to manage Stealth with Ledger devices. As a result, installing Stealth (XST) app to your device from My Ledger will not be possible. 

The Stealth team is adding support of Ledger hardware wallets with their desktop application: StealthSend Desktop. Once this support will be available, you will be able to install Stealth app and manage your XST accounts with Ledger devices using StealthSend Desktop.

Install the Stealth app on your Ledger device to manage XST with Ledger Live. The Stealth app is developed and supported by Ledger.

Before you start


Install the Stealth app
  1. Open My Ledger in Ledger Live.
  2. Connect and unlock your device.
  3. If asked, allow My Ledger to access your device.
  4. Find Stealth in the app catalog.
  5. Click the Install button of the app.
    • An installation window appears.
    • Your device will display Processing... 
    • The app installation is confirmed.
Configure public key exports

The Stealth app can export your extended public key (xpub) to web apps in a U2F compatible web browser (Chrome, Opera, or Firefox). The xpub is privacy-sensitive information, as all public addresses can be generated from it.

Public key exports by default require manual approval on the device to prevent inadvertent sharing of your public addresses. This setting can be configured as follows:

  1. Open the Stealth app.
  2. Navigate to Settings > Public key export approval.
  3. Choose one of two options:
    • Manual approval (default): public key exports require a confirmation on the device.
    • Auto approval: public key exports are automatically approved.
Stealth address formats

Stealth addresses start with an S. This is Stealth's only address format. 

  Address privacy

Stealth transactions are public information. Do not re-use your addresses for optimal privacy. Ledger Live automatically generates new addresses and keeps track of your previous ones. Previous addresses do remain valid, but they don't offer an optimal level of privacy.
