How do hardware wallet scams work?

Did you know that Ledger Wallets have been running a Bug Bounty program since 2014? Ledger awards cash prizes to anyone who can find a security related bugs in their products. The result of this is a seriously safe hardware wallet.

Ledger wallets are the only wallets to have a security certification. In 2019 Ledger was honoured with the CES Innovation Honoree Award for their state of the art hardware wallet Ledger Nano X in the cybersecurity and personal safety category.

So how do hardware wallet scams work? There are a few ways:

1. If you purchase a hardware wallet from an unauthorised scrupulous reseller, they can pre-configure the device with a pin code and generate a 24 word Recovery Phrase. They will then send the pin code in a 'scratch out' type card with the 24 words. This would mean that someone else has access to the pin code and 24 words which gives them access to that crypto account. Remember the crypto is not in your Ledger, it's on the Blockchain. So they don't need the hardware wallet to access the crypto if they have access to your private account Recovery Phrase.

2. There are many fake Ledger Live applications out there. If you download and install one of these, typically they will ask you for the 24 word Recovery Phrase. Then when you transfer funds to the wallet they will disappear. Always download the original Ledger Live app from the Ledger France website or follow the link on our site to Ledger France website.

3. Fake Ledger websites, emails, Ledger Live apps that ask for your pin code and 24 word Recovery Phrase. You will never get an email from Ledger or Crypto Wallets Australia asking for your pin code and 24 words. Never part with this information for any reason.

What are the key things I need know when using a hardware wallet?

Pin Code and Recovery Phrase

When the device is first set up, it will require the customer to generate a unique Pin Code. In addition, the wallet will generate a unique combination of 24 words which will be the wallet Recovery Phrase. These two need to be kept secure as they provide access to your crypto account.

If the Pin Code and Recovery Phrase are lost or incorrectly written down, the customer will no longer be able to access the wallet and therefore the account. Or if someone else has access to these two pieces of information, they can access your account regardless of whether they have your hardware wallet or not. It is therefore best to do the set up and configuration of the device yourself.

Ledger Live download

Ledger Live is the user interface app for Ledger Nano X, Ledger Nano S Plus and Ledger Nano S. Use the hardware wallets paired with Ledger Live on the desktop or smartphone. There are many fake Ledger Live apps on the market on iTunes and Chrome. Download only from the Ledger manufacture's website or follow our download links for ease of mind.

What happens if I lose my Ledger hardware wallet or it gets damaged?

As long as you have the Pin Code and Recovery Phrase all is well. You can simply purchase another hardware wallet and reinstate your crypto account.
