You become the key to your wallet
Your private key serves as the starting point for creating a backup of your Secret Recovery Phrase. Here’s how:
STEP 1: When setting up your Ledger Recover login, you’ll first need to verify your identity using your ID card.
STEP 2: You’ll be asked to connect your Ledger Nano X and give approval to the creation of the backup to your Secret Recovery Phrase. Once approved, your Ledger Nano X will duplicate, encrypt and fragment your private key into three parts within the Secure Element chip. These fragments become the backup of your Secret Recovery Phrase.
STEP 3: These encrypted fragments are securely sent to three independent providers – Ledger, Coincover, and EscrowTech that will store them in Hardware Security Modules (HSMs). Each encrypted fragment is useless on its own. When you request access to your wallet, two of the three encrypted fragments will be sent back to your Ledger device, reassembling them to build your private key.
STEP 4: The backup for your Secret Recovery Phrase is linked to your verified identity from Step 1 so only you have access to it.
STEP 1: Create your Ledger Recover login using your email and a password.
STEP 2: Add your payment details.
STEP 3: Onfido, the ID verification provider, will guide you in verifying your identity.
STEP 4: Connect your Ledger Nano X. It will generate and secure the backup for your Secret Recovery Phrase.
STEP 1: Log in to Ledger Recover.
STEP 2: Connect your Ledger Nano X and confirm your personal details.
STEP 3: Onfido and Electronic IDentification, the ID verification providers, will guide you in verifying your identity.
STEP 4: The backup for your Secret Recovery Phrase is restored on your Ledger Nano X.
