Haven't used your Ledger device in a while?

So you’ve seen the markets and decided to use your Ledger device after a while? To quickly get you up to speed, please have a look at the latest changes below.

Update to the very latest version of Ledger Live

We publish new versions of Ledger Live very frequently (every 2 weeks to a month). This is meant not only to provide additional features, but also to fix potential bugs and more importantly to update key parameters allowing to synchronize your accounts and portfolio to the different blockchains.

To be sure all of your transactions will be showing in your wallet, you can either update Ledger Live directly from the app itself (orange notification showing at the top) or by downloading it here.

Update the firmware for optimal security

The functionality and security of Ledger devices are continuously improved with new firmware versions. You can update your Ledger device using My Ledger in Ledger Live. Please use our firmware update guide for Ledger Nano S, Nano S Plus, and Nano X during the update. Our troubleshooting article is useful in case you get stuck. 

Install apps and add accounts

The apps for your Ledger device are available to install and uninstall in "My Ledger" in Ledger Live. After installing an app, you can add your accounts for the crypto assets supported in Ledger Live. You can check which crypto assets are supported in our list of supported crypto assets.

Besides crypto assets added by Ledger, there are crypto assets developed and supported by third parties. You cannot (yet) add accounts for these in Ledger Live, so you must use third-party (web) apps for them. The crypto assets section in our support center provides information on how to manage any crypto asset supported on your Ledger device.
