Things to know:
– Our mission is to become your easiest and most secure way to experience Web3. That’s why we just announced the upcoming launch of “Ledger Extension” (previously called “Ledger Connect”), our new and multi-chain browser extension for Safari that will greatly simplify your crypto life.
– “Ledger Extension” will enable you to seamlessly connect your Ledger hardware wallet to your favorite Web3 app without the need for third-parties wallet dependencies. “Ledger Extension” will also add a new security layer called “Web3 Check.” When a Web3 app will look suspicious, “Ledger Extension” will automatically warn you about potential security risks.
– At launch, “Ledger Extension” will be compatible with the Ledger Nano X and Mobile Safari. Support for the Ledger Nano S Plus and Desktop will come later. “Ledger Extension” will be compatible with both ETH and SOL at beta launch before gradually expanding to other protocols.
Seamlessly connect your Ledger to Web3
“Ledger Extension” is our upcoming crypto wallet extension that will enable you to connect to Web3 apps from anywhere with your Ledger Nano X to prevent hacks, scams, and keep your crypto and NFTs secure.
Simply put, no more third-parties wallet dependencies will be needed to securely dive into Web3 through the Ledger ecosystem. It’s the first browser extension that has been designed from the outset to work with a Ledger hardware wallet.
Besides bringing convenience, Ledger Extension will add a new security layer called “Web3 Check.” When a Web3 app will look suspicious, “Ledger Extension” will automatically warn you about the risk and potential security issues linked to past scams, hacked websites, and fraudulent smart contracts. More checks will be added in the future to make sure you enjoy the safest Web3 experience.
This will only be a preliminary security check. We will always advise you to do your own research before signing to authorize a transaction.
“Ledger Extension” will support multiple Blockchains
“Ledger Extension” is a multi-chain browser wallet extension supporting both ETH and SOL at launch. It is the only browser extension to support both blockchains and will gradually be compatible with other protocols after the launch.
“Ledger Extension” will also automatically switch to the right network when connecting to a Web3 app. For instance, if the app is working on ETH, the extension will automatically detect it and connect your ETH account. This automatic blockchain detection feature won’t be available at launch, but coming soon after.
Your new browser extension will simply ask you to press on a “Ledger Extension” button when connecting your Ledger wallet with a Web3 app.
“Ledger Extension” won’t have an asset management feature, which means that you won’t manage your funds/accounts directly from your browser extension and you will still need your Ledger Live companion app to manage your accounts. You will be able to connect to a Web3 website and “sign” transactions from your hardware wallet.
