Before you start, make sure your devices are ready. Here are some key points to check:
- You have the latest version of Yoroi. In principle, browser extensions are updated automatically but you can also update them manually in your browser's settings.
- You have connected your device in Ledger Live and downloaded the Cardano app.
- Your Ledger is up to date. To upgrade, you should update your firmware through Ledger Live first, then update the Cardano app.
At this point, close Ledger Live and make sure to keep it closed at all times when using Yoroi as it can conflict with Yoroi and result in having issues using your Ledger to manage your ADA.
Now, open Yoroi and go to Connect to hardware wallet > Cardano > Ledger Hardware wallet > Standard wallet. Then you'll see prerequisites to successfully connect your Ledger. After following them, click Next > Connect and choose your device. If you get a popup with "emurgo.github.io wants to connect to an HID device", please click on your device on this popup to highlight it and then click Connect. Follow the instructions in Yoroi. Lastly, give a name to your wallet and click Save.
Your Cardano wallet should now appear in the Dashboard.
What's next? You can receive, store and send ADA and Cardano native tokens. You can also delegate your ADA to support the network and earn rewards.
You will need to connect your Ledger to confirm all transactions (excl. receiving funds).
