How to Connect and Use Ledger Nano X, S and S+ with Pera Web Wallet

Pera Web Wallet supports accounts backed by a Ledger Nano hardware wallet. Pera Web supports all models of the Ledger Nano:
Ledger Nano X can be connected via USB or Bluetooth (on Bluetooth-supported browsers)
Ledger Nano S and S+ can be connected via USB
Ledger devices can only be connected via chromium browsers such as Google Chrome, Brave, Edge, etc. Currently, Firefox and Safari are not supported.

Before you can use Ledger Nano with Pera, you need to set up your Ledger Nano following the instructions you received with the device. Then, download Ledger Live and install the Algorand App.

If this is your first time using Pera Web, you’ll see the following options:

Select Import from Nano Ledger. You’ll be asked to set a passcode - this encrypts your accounts locally on the current device and browser, and is used to lock and unlock your wallet. You can then proceed through the Connect to Ledger flow.

If you already have a Pera Web Wallet, select Add Account and then Connect Nano Ledger:

You can then proceed through the Connect Ledger flow.
