Use the Manager

Use the Manager in the Ledger Live application to install and uninstall apps on your Ledger device, or to update the device firmware.

  2. Connect and unlock your Ledger device.

  2. Click the Install button of the app.
    • An installation window appears.

  If the app could not be installed, either free up storage space by uninstalling some apps or install the Bitcoin app first to install a Bitcoin dependent app.

Uninstall an app

  2. Click the Trash button of the app.
