How to pair and connect your Ledger Nano X to MetaMask mobile app

This tutorial describes how to connect your Ledger Nano X to the MetaMask mobile app on Android or iOS and import your Ledger account.

 Please note that connecting your Ledger device to MetaMask mobile requires Bluetooth and cannot be done via USB cable. As such, this feature is not available to Ledger Nano S Plus users. Also, please note that, currently, you can only sync a single Ledger account with the MetaMask mobile app.

Before you start

  • Update Ledger Live to the latest version.
  • Connect your Ledger Nano X to Ledger Live and ensure it has the latest OS (firmware) version.
  • Make sure to update the Metamask app on your iPhone to v7.17.0 or above. This might require a manual update through the AppStore.
  • Make sure that your Bluetooth is enabled. To check if Bluetooth is enabled on your Ledger Nano X:
    • Turn on and unlock your Ledger Nano X.
    • Hold both buttons to access the Control Center.
    • Navigate to the Bluetooth symbol using the right or left button.
    • Check if the Bluetooth status displays enabled.
