Ledger Wallets Complete Guide

Ledger Wallets, also known as hardware wallets, are physical devices that provide the ultimate in cryptocurrency security.

Ledger Bitcoin wallets are now shipping worldwide and can be ordered online from both Amazon and Ledger directly. They come in different sizes (starting from a micro-sized “Mini Ledger Nano S” to the massive “Leafy Bigger.”)

This is all for two reasons. First, because Ledger can reliably manufacture their own equipment to make sure they do everything right. Second, because they do not accept orders of any size above a certain limit. If you order a size up, you won’t be able to get that size, until the next available year. Also, the minimum order is $199, so if you order a top-of-the-line Ledger wallet, you may get it in 6-8 weeks.

Getting Started with the Ledger Wallet

In order to create a new wallet, follow the steps below.

Install Ledger Wallet on your computer. If you already have a Ledger Nano S, install it from the Ledger app. Otherwise, download the Ledger Nano S and Ubuntu Desktop App from the Ledger website. Once installed, you will have access to the Ledger Wallet from your Ubuntu Desktop App. Now plug in your Ledger Nano S device into your computer. It will automatically recognize it and load up the Ledger Wallet App. (Note: if you have not installed the Ledger Wallet app, you’ll need to do this.) Run the Ledger Wallet app. You should be greeted by the message “This Ledger device is registered and connected.” Select your Ledger Nano S device from the list on the left. Click the “Backup” button. This will backup your wallet to your computer and the Ledger server. Select your phone number from the list of people or devices who can access the wallet. Send a text message to this number. It is now ready to use.

Now that your wallet is backed up, you’ll be able to use the Ledger Wallet app. Once installed, it will automatically recognize your Ledger Nano S device and load up the Ledger Wallet App.

For advanced features, you can access Ledger’s iOS app (Apple only), and Ledger’s web app.

2. Secure your Ledger Wallet

Using your Ledger Wallets will give you total access to your funds. However, there are steps you can take to make sure your wallet is as safe as possible.

Your first step is to protect your device. While Ledger Wallet can’t stop you from making your own mistakes, it will help you recover from them if you make a mistake.

To protect your device, you will want to put a PIN number into the Ledger Wallet App. This PIN is required in order to open the Ledger Wallet and make any changes.

Your Ledger Nano S device will also need some kind of password, so you can unlock it if your device is stolen.

If your device has already been lost, stolen, or if it is at risk of being lost or stolen, you can reset the PIN and password in the Ledger Wallet App.

Now, let’s see how you can set up your device.

Windows users: To use your Ledger Wallet, you will need to download the Ledger Nano S and Windows Desktop App from the Ledger website. This will allow you to access the Ledger Wallet app from your Windows Desktop App.

Linux users: Once you have the Ledger Nano S, it is a simple matter to install it and start using your wallet. Click here to learn how.

Mac users: If you’d like to set up your Ledger Wallet, download the Ledger Wallet app from the Ledger website. This will allow you to access the Ledger Wallet app from your Mac.

2.1. Add a PIN

First, let’s create a PIN. You can create the PIN by pressing the button on your Ledger Nano S twice. You will need to enter the PIN four times, but you can enter as many times as you would like. The PIN will be saved on your device.

Now, let’s create a PIN. To do this, click on the Ledger icon in the menu bar at the top of the Ledger Wallet app. From there, click “Personal info” at the top left and click the “+” button. From there, click “Edit PIN” in the top right. On the following page, enter the PIN that you just created. Click “Ok” to finish.

When you create a PIN, you’ll be asked to confirm the PIN. If you’d like to generate a new PIN, you can click the “Generate new PIN” button. Enter the new PIN and confirm the change.

Note: If you change your PIN, you may have to wait 5-10 minutes for the Ledger Wallet app to sync with the Ledger server.

2.2. Set a password

Every device you use, be it your PC, your phone, or your Ledger Wallet, needs a password to open it. This will prevent anyone from accessing your account without your permission. The password is typically a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols.

To create a password, click on the Ledger icon in the menu bar at the top of the Ledger Wallet app. From there, click “Personal info” at the top left and click the “+” button. From there, click “Edit Password.” On the following page, enter your password. Click “Ok” to finish.

You’ll be asked to confirm the password. Click “Ok” to finish the process.

2.3. Set a strong password

When setting a password, it’s very important that you choose a password that is difficult to guess. A good password should have characters, but not special characters like % or ?. To choose a good password, try to add a symbol or symbol code. For example, \3~5~~4 (equals 33, 101, and 103) is a good combination.

You can even choose a random sequence of characters.

You can set the strength of your password by clicking on the “Change Password” button in the menu bar at the top of the Ledger Wallet app. You’ll then be given the opportunity to select your password’s strength.

When setting a strong password, use mixed characters like @. Last but not least, try to use lowercase letters as much as possible. Lowercase letters can be more difficult to guess than capital letters, so choose them wisely!

You can also choose a six-digit PIN. For example, on the Ledger app you can enter “86363390270622.”

2.4. Set up a regular (non-biometric) PIN

When you don’t want to have a biometric identifier, you can set a standard PIN that you can use for all your devices. If you need to use a biometric PIN on your phone, you can use the same regular PIN that you set up on your Ledger device. You don’t need to change any of the passwords when you do this.

To set up a regular PIN, go to the Ledger wallet app and open the menu by tapping the menu button in the top right of the screen and clicking “Wallet & Account.”

From there, click on “Personal info” at the top left. Click on “Edit Personal Info” in the bottom left of the screen.

On the following page, click “Change Password” in the bottom right of the screen. Click “Ok” to finish.

You can also set a password that has no biometric identifiers. This will allow you to keep your device protected even if someone tries to copy the Ledger Nano S to copy your credentials and use it to access your wallet.

Note: A secure PIN could prevent a malicious user from taking control of your Ledger device. To reduce the risk of someone gaining control of your device, you should have a unique pin that is different from your regular PIN. If you do decide to use a PIN, it is recommended that you set a password that is six characters long and contain at least three numbers and a symbol.

2.5. Set a PIN when the device is locked

When you first lock your Ledger wallet, it will appear as if the wallet has no screen. This is fine. When you need to access your Ledger, you need to press “On” to see your device’s screen.

To make your Ledger Wallet appear when you want to see it, you can set a PIN. To do this, go to the Ledger Wallet app and open the menu by tapping the menu button in the top right of the screen and clicking “Wallet & Account.”

From there, click “Personal info” at the top left. Click “Edit Password” in the bottom left of the screen. Click “Change Password.”

On the following page, click “Change Password” in the bottom right of the screen. Click “Ok” to finish.

You can also set a password that has no biometric identifiers. This will allow you to keep your device protected even if someone tries to copy the Ledger Nano S to copy your credentials and use it to access your wallet.
