What Is a Hardware Wallet?

Your private keys are stored in a hardware wallet, which allows you to sign transactions. Because they are not connected to the internet, they are highly secure and not susceptible to hacking.

To use a hardware wallet, you must connect it to your computer or mobile device. This is a quick guide on connecting a hardware wallet with Metamask Mobile.

1. Metamask Mobile is compatible with your hardware wallet. Currently, only Ledger Nano S or Ledger Nano X can be supported.

2. Get the Metamask Mobile App for your phone and create an account.

3. Connect your Ledger Nano S and NanoX to your device with the included USB connection.

4. Open Metamask Mobile and click on the “Settings” tab.

5. Scroll down to select “Hardware Wallet.”

6. Select “Ledger Nano S” or “Ledger Nano X.”

7. To finish the connecting procedure, follow the on-screen instructions.

That’s it!

What Is Metamask?

Metamask, a browser extension for Firefox that is free and open-source, allows you to store and send Ethereum. You can also connect to decentralized apps (dApps) on the Ethereum network. Metamask can be used with Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Brave browsers.

You must first create an account to use Metamask. This can be done by visiting the Metamask website, clicking on “Create A Wallet,” and following the instructions.

A phrase will be given to you, which you must keep secure. After creating an account, you can add accounts by either importing your seed phrase to your Ethereum node or connecting to it.

After you have created an account and added accounts, you will be able to use Metamask to interact dApps. You will need to change your Metamask account from the wrong network.

If you wish to use the main Ethereum network, your Metamask account must be switched to the “Main Network.”

You will need to change your Metamask account if you wish to use a Rinkeby-only dApp.
