How to access your Ledger Helium (HNT) account via the Helium HNT Wallet mobile app

This tutorial describes how to access your Ledger Helium (HNT) account via the Helium HNT Wallet mobile app.
 You can learn more about the features supported by the mobile app here.

 A word of caution

  • This tutorial requires Bluetooth. As such it's only available for Nano X users.
  • The Helium (HNT) app, which you need to download on your Nano X is an experimental feature that is still pending review by the Ledger team. Using the app is safe but you might encounter some minor UI bugs.
  • Ledger Nano S/S+ users can also manage HNT but without the mobile app since it requires Bluetooth. This guide created by Helium will walk you through managing HNT with Ledger Nano S/S+ -> Ledger Hardware Wallet

Before you start

  • Make sure to update Ledger Live to the latest version via this link.
  • Open Ledger Live and connect your Ledger device to My Ledger to ensure that your device is running the latest firmware version.
  • Download the Helium HNT Wallet mobile app on your Android or iOS phone.
  • On your Nano X device, go to the Control Center and make sure that Bluetooth is Enabled.
