Tutorial 10 – How To Connect A Ledger Nano Or HW.1 To Mycelium

How To Connect A Ledger Nano Or HW.1 To Mycelium

 

This Tutorial is designed to help you connect your Ledger Nano or Ledger HW.1 to your mobile phone using Mycelium Wallet.

For this Tutorial you’ll need a Ledger Nano or HW.1 and a USB on-the-go cable that works with your phone. Ledger sells a branded one with a different style for Android phones as well.

Just like my Review of Mycelium Wallet I’m going to write it as if you’re on Android. If I pick up the right equipment I may amend this Tutorial to include iOS instructions in the future. I will also assume you’ve already downloaded Mycelium Wallet from the Google Play Store and installed it, or at least know how to do so.

ledger_mycelium_1Go to the Accounts tab.

ledger_mycelium_2Click on the Key+ icon at the top.

ledger_mycelium_3Click on Advanced.

ledger_mycelium_4Click on Ledger.

ledger_mycelium_5Connect your Ledger to your phone using the USB OTG cable.

ledger_mycelium_6Tell Android to allow Mycelium wallet to use the Ledger.

ledger_mycelium_7Enter your PIN.

Select a Ledger wallet to import.

ledger_mycelium_8Type in a name for the wallet.

ledger_mycelium_9Congratulations, you’ve connected the two.

ledger_mycelium_10Now when sending you’ll have to select the Ledger wallet in the account tab.

ledger_mycelium_11Go to the Balance tab and set up the send just like you would normally and hit Send.

ledger_mycelium_12Connect your Ledger Nano or HW.1 when Mycelium tells you.

ledger_mycelium_13Put in your PIN to unlock the wallet.

ledger_mycelium_14Put in the code from your security card, just like you do on the computer.

ledger_mycelium_15And that’s all there is to it. You now have a mobile security solution for your Bitcoin.

As I said in my Review, I consider the Ledger HW.1 to be a long term storage solution I would store in a lock box or safe of some kind. Also, I don’t like having to always carry an adapter to connect to my phone. For that reason I suggest you keep the HW.1, adapter, security card, and recovery sheet in a secure location. For my next Tutorials I will show you how to set up a Ledger Unplugged and connect it to Mycelium for a better on-the-go solution.
