How can I use my Ledger device with the Hiro Wallet?

What is Ledger?

Founded in 2014, Ledger allows users to buy, exchange and grow their crypto securely with a Ledger hardware wallet, combined with the Ledger Live app. It’s never been easier to keep crypto safe and accessible.

How can I use my Ledger device with the Hiro Wallet?

The Stacks app for Ledger empowers users to connect their Ledger devices to the Hiro Wallet (MacOS, Windows and Linux) for securely managing their Stacks (STX) holdings and participating in Stacking.

The Stacks app is available in Ledger Live. You'll need to install it there before proceeding to connect your Ledger Nano S or X device to the Hiro Wallet for authentication.

  1. Download and open Ledger Live
  2. Connect your Ledger device
  3. Upgrade your firmware for Ledger Nano S to version 2.1.0 or Nano X to version 2.0.2 or greater.
  4. Go to "Manager" on the left-hand side of Ledger Live
  5. Connect and enter your PIN on your Ledger device
  6. Confirm "Allow Ledger manager" on device
  7. Search "Stacks" and select "Install" - NOTE: please ensure your Ledger device has sufficient space to download the Stacks app.
  8. Close Ledger Live App
  9. Return to Hiro Wallet and proceed with authentication

Important: 

  • Ledger Blue is not supported by the Hiro Wallet. You'll need to transfer your recovery phrase to a separate Nano S or X device.
