To update, simply restart Ledger Live or download the latest version here. If the issue persists, please contact us.

  Security tip

Always send a small amount first. Then verify that the transaction was properly received on the recipient address before proceeding to send larger amounts. If there's a doubt whether a transaction has gone through, simply check back a few minutes later.

Before you begin

  • You can only send crypto assets that are supported in Ledger Live.
  • Check that the right app is installed on your device.
    Ex: install the Bitcoin app to send Bitcoin.
