Connect Ledger device

This document will show you how to connect a Ledger device to SubWallet.

Set up Ledger device

Step 1: Connect Ledger device to your computer using the USB cable. Please make sure to enter your PIN code. Press the right button to go up, the left button to go down, and both buttons simultaneously to validate.

Here, we will take an example by choosing the Kusama network.

Connect Ledger device

Step 1: Open SubWallet's web dashboard, and click on the account name to get to the account management screen.

Step 2: Choose the "Attach account" icon in the lower right corner.

Step 3: Choose "Connect a Ledger device".

Step 4: A window will pop up as follows:

Choose the device (In the example below, our device is named Nano X) and then click "Connect".

Step 5: After your Ledger has been successfully found by SubWallet, click "Connect Ledger device".

Please remember that you have to turn on the corresponding app on the Ledger device.

Step 6: Choose the account you want to use then click "Connect Ledger device".

Step 7: Your Ledger account is ready!

If you get to the account list (repeat Step 2), you can see your Ledger account there.

If you have a Ledger account on the Substrate network (e.g., Polkadot, Acala, etc.), it is limited to handling assets within the corresponding network, such as tokens and NFTs.

For instance: If you have an account attached from Ledger with the Polkadot network, you can only manage assets within the Polkadot network using SubWallet.

On the other hand, if you have an account attached from Ledger in EVM networks (such as Moonbeam, Ethereum,...), it can active and manage all of the assets on the EVM network.

For instance: If you have an account attached from Ledger with Moonbeam network, you also can manage assets from Ethereum,... within the EVM network using SubWallet.
