Prerequisites

⚠️ Please make sure you have the latest firmware for the Ledger Nano device installed and the of the latest version of the Ledger Cosmos app installed before proceeding. 

Importing or Connecting Your Ledger Account

  1. If you are setting up Keplr for the first time: In the initial pop-up window, choose [Import Ledger]

  2. Set the account name for the Ledger account, then press next.

  3. Connect and unlock your Ledger hardware wallet, then open the Cosmos app. When you see ‘Cosmos ready’ on the screen, press ‘Next’ on the popup. Your browser may ask you to grant permission to access the hardware, so please make sure you approve.

  4. And that’s it. You can now start using your Ledger hardware wallet with any of the blockchains that Keplr supports.

What if I have multiple accounts from the same mnemonic?

If you have more than one accounts associated with the mnemonic, you can set your custom HD wallet derivation path by pressing the ‘Advanced’ button during step 4. Typically, accounts start from 0 then 1 then 2, and so on.

  1. Make sure you have imported the account with the correct derivation path. If you are interested in knowing more about the HD wallet derivation path, you can find more in the Keplr FAQ, section [Account & Security].

  2. If you have just downloaded Keplr extension, it’s time to set your password! Choose carefully, if possible prefer a password you’re not using in any other application, and then click [Confirm]. If you have used Keplr before, this step will be skipped as you have already set your password when creating/importing your first account.

  3. Select [Done].
