  • Download and install the latest version of Ledger Live via this link.
  • Follow this guide to make sure that your Ledger setup is completely up to date.

Install the VeChain recovery app

  1. Connect your Ledger device to your computer and unlock it.
  2. Open Ledger Live, go to Settings > Experimental features and activate Developer mode.
  3. Go to My Ledger > App catalog.
  4. Type “VeChain” in the search bar, select the VeChain Recovery app and click Install.

Connect your Ledger to the Sync Recovery app

  1. Close Ledger Live
  2. Go to https://github.com/LedgerHQ/thor-sync.electron-ldg-recovery/releases/tag/v1.3.2-ldg-recovery-6
  3. Download the installation package for your OS and install the app on your computer.
    If prompted with a security pop-up on Windows, select More info > Run anyway.
  4. Open Sync and select Create Now.
  5. On your Ledger device, navigate to the VeChain Recovery app and press both buttons simultaneously to open the app.

  1. The Ledger subreddit is continuously targeted by scammers. Ledger Support will never send you private messages. Never share your 24-word recovery phrase with anyone, never enter it on any website or software, even if it looks like it’s from Ledger. Only keep the recovery phrase as a physical paper or metal backup, never create a digital copy in text or photo form.
