How to perform a complete update of your Ledger setup

This article describes how to correctly update Ledger Live, your Ledger device and apps.

 Keeping your Ledger setup up to date helps prevent most sync/connection issues and ensures you're always enjoying optimal security and the latest features.

How to update your Ledger setup

  1. Go to to download and install the latest version of Ledger Live.
  2. Connect your Ledger device to your computer and unlock it with the PIN code.
  3. Open Ledger Live and connect your Ledger device to My Ledger.

     Did you know? A blue dot displayed next to My Ledger means that updates are available.

  4. If prompted, update your Ledger firmware to the latest version.

     Important note about firmware updates

    • Updating firmware carries a very small chance that your Ledger device will reset. If that happens you'll need to restore your private keys and accounts with your 24-word recovery phrase.
    • Not sure whether your 24-word recovery phrase is correctly backed up? Do a recovery check before updating firmware.
    • Lost access to your 24-word recovery phrase or failed the recovery check?  Don't update firmware, instead follow these steps.

    If all looks good, click Update firmware to continue with the update.

  5. If prompted, update your apps.


    You're done! Your Ledger setup is now up to date.
