You can connect your Ledger Nano X to MetaMask and use dapps and make transactions in a much safer way. In this guide, I’ll show you how to connect MetaMask to Ledger Nano X and use MetaMask with Ledger Nano X.
There are mainly two reasons you may want to use MetaMask with your Ledger Nano X wallet. One is to manage your ERC-721 tokens, aka crypto collectibles, in MetaMask and the other reason is to use dapps and make transactions without fear of getting hacked.
To connect your Ledger Nano X wallet to MetaMask, you first need to allow contract data in transactions on your device to be able to connect your device to MetaMask. You can enable contract data by clicking on the Ethereum app on your Ledger Nano X device and then settings.
After enabling contract data on your device, log in to your MetaMask wallet in your browser and click on ”connect hardware wallet”.
First plug your Ledger Nano X device into your computer via USB, and don’t open Ledger Live app. After your device is plugged in, choose ”Ledger” and click on the ”connect” button in MetaMask.
Choose ”Ledger Live” and first address, and click on the ”unlock” button.
Now your Ledger Nano X account is successfully connected to MetaMask. You can use decentralized exchanges, DeFi apps and other dapps safely with your Ledger Nano X wallet. You can also manage your non-fungible tokens in MetaMask. To sign transactions, you always need your Nano X device to be plugged in.
