The Algorand Wallet Just Got More Secure with Ledger Nano X Integration

By: Algorand

As part of Algorand’s commitment to ensure the highest standard of crypto security, we are proud to announce that the Algorand Wallet has just added one of the first wallet bluetooth integrations with the Ledger Nano X.

The Algorand Wallet is Algorand’s official mobile wallet that allows users to hold, transact, and request Algos or one of the hundreds of assets built on the Algorand blockchain. 

Within Algorand Wallet, you can access your various accounts along with their respective public and private keys. While all transactions are signed on the phone itself with private keys that never leave the device.

Our Ledger Nano X integration will add even more security to protect your assets:

  1. Authenticating and authorizing transactions
  2. Providing a cold storage option for creating and storing private keys offline

By using the Ledger Nano X hardware wallet to store your private key and sign transactions, your private key never even touches your phone - ensuring your Algos, or any other asset built on the Algorand blockchain, will stay safe, wherever you go. The signing process is simple and secure, made even easier with the Ledger Nano X’s bluetooth capabilities.
