How can I backup my Ledger wallet?

You don't have to make any added manipulation to backup your wallets: you already have an operational backup as soon as you initialized your device.

The 24 words you copied on your Recovery sheet when you first handled your device is your backup. These 24 words are your "seed", which is like a passphrase that generates all your public and private addresses.

When you need to import your accounts in another compatible wallet, you must enter these 24 words in the new wallet, it will automatically synchronize all your transactions from the blockchain and shows your correct balance.
