You become the key to your wallet
STEP 1: Identity verification
Verify your identity using a valid ID document and a selfie recording.
STEP 2: Creating the backup
Connect your Ledger device and approve the creation of the backup for your Secret Recovery Phrase. Once approved, your Ledger device will encrypt the entropy of your Secret Recovery Phrase—a string of random 1s and 0s from which your Secret Recovery Phrase is computed. The encrypted entropy is fragmented into three pieces within the Secure Element chip. These fragments become the backup for your Secret Recovery Phrase. Ledger Recover only interacts with the fragments of the encrypted entropy, and never with your Secret Recovery Phrase in its readable format.
STEP 3: Securing the backup
The fragments are securely distributed using end-to-end encrypted and authenticated channels to the Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) of three independent companies – Ledger, Coincover, and EscrowTech. Each fragment on its own is a useless set of random numbers.
STEP 4: Linking the backup to your verified identity
Each fragment is linked to your verified identity from Step 1, so only you can request to retrieve the backup.
STEP 1: Create your Ledger Recover login using your email and a password.
STEP 2: Add your payment details.
STEP 3: Get your identity verified. Onfido, the ID verification provider, will guide you.
STEP 4: Connect your Ledger device. It will generate and secure the backup for your Secret Recovery Phrase.
Remember, Ledger Recover is an optional and opt-in service. You are required to go through the process described above to activate and subscribe to Ledger Recover.
STEP 1: Log in to Ledger Recover.
STEP 2: Connect your Ledger device and confirm your details.
STEP 3: Verify your identity twice. Onfido and Electronic IDentification (eID), the ID verification providers, will guide you through the verification process.
STEP 4: The encrypted backup for your Secret Recovery Phrase is restored on your Ledger device.
Self-custody secured by your identity
Accessing your wallet is seamless: just you, your ID, and your current Ledger device, or a new one.
No compromise to your self-custody
You alone can initiate the recovery process, which is ensured using double ID verification.
