Use multiple Ledger devices

The Ledger Live application can be used with multiple Ledger devices.

Add accounts from multiple devices

A Ledger device gives access to the crypto asset accounts associated with the 24-word recovery phrase it was configured with.

Devices with different recovery phrases

If you've set up multiple devices with different recovery phrases, each device controls a different set of accounts. In that case, follow these tips:

  • First, add the accounts linked to the first device, and repeat for your other device(s).
  • Name the accounts such as to know to which device it belongs, assuming that you've labeled the devices.
  • Always connect the device that controls the selected account when sending or receive

Devices with the same recovery phrase

If you've set up one device and restored the same recovery phrase on another, both devices control the same accounts. In that case, both hardware wallets can be used interchangeably with Ledger Live. You can freely add accounts, as well as verify and sign transactions with either of the two devices.
