Renaming your Ledger Nano X

Your Nano X comes with a default name, such as “Nano X 158B”. The last part of the default name is generated randomly and is different for every device.

We recommend changing the name of your device to easily identify your Nano X if you use multiple devices and to increase your privacy since the device name is visible when you connect to other devices via Bluetooth.

Viewing the device name

You can view the name of your device from the Ledger Live mobile app or directly from your Nano X.
