How to verify the authenticity of Ledger Live?

This article will explain how to verify the authenticity of a Ledger Live installation package using Ledger Live Download Signatures on Windows / macOS / Linux.

 Signatures Unavailable for version 2.43.1

  • We are no longer using GitHub to distribute new Ledger Live versions and have migrated to a new service.
  • As a result of the transition, we were exceptionally not able to post signatures for Ledger Live version 2.43.1.
  • The version you can download through our website is safe and the signatures will be listed back in the next Ledger Live update.
  • In the meantime, you can either:
    • Stay on Ledger Live 2.42 until we release the next update.
    • Reach out to our Support service, we will provide you with a safe link to download Ledger Live 2.43.1.
    • Download Ledger Live 2.42 via our old GitHub repo, verify its signatures and use the in-app prompt to safely update to the latest version.
  • In any case, please keep in mind that the security of your Ledger accounts ultimately hinges on your 24-word recovery phrase. For more on how to keep your phrase safe, please consult this article.
Windows macOS Linux
  1. Go to GitHub and download the latest release of OpenHashTab on your computer.

  2. Install OpenHashTab.
  3. Go to the Ledger website, scroll down to the Download Ledger Live app section and download the Windows installation package.

  4. Right-click on the installation package icon on your computer, and select Properties.
    A Ledger Live properties window appears.

  5. Go to the Hashes tab and you can see the hashes of the installation package. Now you need to compare with the hash from our website.

  6. Go to the Ledger Live Download Signatures page, ​scroll down to the Ledger Live binaries section and copy the Windows hash.

  7. Go back to the​ Ledger Live Properties window, to the Hashes tab, and paste the hash from the website in the Check against field 
    If the hash is matching, you should see the name of the installation file. If hash does not match, you will see "No match found" message.
