How to connect your Ledger hardware wallet to the Songbird network

Hardware wallets are considered among the more secure options to manage crypto assets and store private keys. Your crypto assets can remain safe, even if your computer or phone is compromised, as long as you keep your recovery phrase safe and review all transaction details before confirming transactions.

To use your Ledger device with Songbird (SGB), first make sure that you have:

  1. Initialized your Ledger device with a recovery phrase

  2. Protected your Ledger device with a PIN code

  3. Ledger Live is installed, open and ready to use

  4. Installed the latest Ledger device firmware

  5. Installed the latest version of the Ledger Ethereum app

  6. Installed the latest version of Google Chrome

Install the Songbird App (Optional)

After meeting the requirements, you can install the Songbird app by following these steps:
