Fix for Windows 10 security popup

The Windows 10 May edition (Windows 1903) changes how Windows interacts with Ledger devices, leading to a security popup when using web apps. Please reinstall the apps on your Ledger device if you're experiencing issues when using web wallets. 

Ledger Nano S and Ledger Nano X

Your Ledger Nano S or Ledger Nano X will continue to function if you follow the instructions below. First, make sure your Ledger Nano S runs the latest firmware and the latest app versions.


Windows will display a security popup when you use your device with web wallets such as, Yoroi wallet, and MetaMask.

  1. Move the popup to the side. Do not click on Cancel or X. Your device may freeze and will need to be reconnected.
  2. Verify the transaction details.
  3. Confirm the transaction. 


Ledger Blue

Ledger Blue users should either use Ledger Live or postpone updating Windows until a firmware update is released.
