Please assist. Having issues connecting my hard wallet to the Yoroi application

Hello,
I am not sure that I am in the correct place to get help. I am just trying to receive my ADA from an exchange. My Ledger Nano X needs the Yorio application to make this happen. When I try to connect the two and follow the steps. I keep getting a pop window that says “WIndows security. Making sure it’s you. Please sign in to emurgo.github.io. The request comes from Chrome, published by Google LLC. Touch your security key”. I have no idea what to do. If any one can help or direct me to where I can get help it would be much appreciated.

Thanks for the reply. I just tried adalite and get the same pop pu Windows security. It won’t let me use these applications. How do I turn this off?

Try with mozilla firefox
Also u can install yoroi on mobile and connect ledger via BT

Cheers,

Hello,

Thanks for your continued help. What do you mean by “BT” I can’t see how I would connect my Ledger device to my iphone?

BT=Bluetooth

Hi @alt161 . Try to follow what @Alexd1985 said above. Another option that you can take is to use official Daedalus wallet + paired to your Ledger Nano X.

Download the official desktop app for Daedalus (no mobile app at the moment → it’s a scam mobile app)

Then pair your Ledger Nano X. And move your ADA from the exchange to Daedalus wallet. After that you can also see your wallet in Yoroi also (web/mobile).

Hope it helps. I use Ledger Nano S with Daedalus wallet. And I see my ADA in my mobile using Yoroi.

In adalite you have the possibility to select either “Unlock with ledger” or “Connect with WebUSB”. It is possible that it works with the second alternative.

Thank-you. I will try this. I am not very technical. But I have to get my ADA off the exchange into my ledger. Will I be able to see my ADA in the Daedalus Wallet and not bother with Yoroi?

Al

Sure, do these steps:

  • Download Daedalus desktop app
  • Update your Ledger Live and install Cardano app in your Ledger hardware
  • In Daedalus, pair your Ledger, so you will have Daedalus Wallet paired with your Ledger
  • Transfer your ADA from exchange to your Daedalus wallet
  • That’s it

This is just a pop up that appears on windows when your ledger try’s to export your public keys. Connect your ledger then open up the cardano app on your ledger first before opening up Yoroi or Adalite. Once you’ve done this open up Yoroi or adalite and try to connect when you’ve done the first step. You will get the pop up but just ignore it and on your ledger device you will see export public key. Approve this on your ledger and it should work. If not you might need to update the drivers

Hello,

I followed all your steps and got to the point that I exported the public key to the Daedalus application then nothing happens. I can obtain the address to recieve my ADA from the exchange but I was waiting for that address to appear on my Ledger Device so that I can verify that the address is correct. That is the way the Ledger Live application works and what I have read I should always do is compare the address on the desktop application to the one showing on my ledger device - no address shows up on the device.

Please advise.

Hello Andreassosilo,
First of all thanks so much for your assistance. This whole process has been rather nerve wracking and stressful. I didn’t realize there was so much technical requirements to own cryptocurrency!

I just successfully transferred a test receive to my Daedalus wallet and it arrived!! I am partly relieved. At this point before I transfer larger amounts I really want to make sure that this transaction is safe on my ledger device even though I see it on my desktop in the wallet window as I had some issues exporting my public key from my device when I was asked.
So my questions are:

  1. If I can see the ADA which I received in the Daedalus window does that mean that it is secure on my Ledger Device?
  2. What happens if my computer dies and I have to reload the Daedalus program, once I reconnect my Ledger will I be able to see my ADA balance - no passwords or other keys needed?
  3. On the Youtube video it describes how to confirm that the Daedalus progam I downloaded is legit. Is there a way for me to determine that at this point?

U can test it by connect ur ledger on adalite.io or on yoroi chrome extension; if u see the funds then u succesfully sent them to ledger and now u can move all funds to ledger

What happens if my computer dies and I have to reload the Daedalus program, once I reconnect my Ledger will I be able to see my ADA balance - no passwords or other keys needed?

Exactly, no password needs or seed words for restoring the wallet; also u can connect the ledger with yoroi chrome extension or on adalite.io everytime when u have issues with daedalus

To connect ledger to daedalus:

  • choose PAIR

To connect ledger to yoroi:

  • add wallet (shelley era) - connect ledger

On the Youtube video it describes how to confirm that the Daedalus progam I downloaded is legit. Is there a way for me to determine that at this point?

Download only from official sources like

Anyway… using a hw wallet u always need to confirm the transaction on ledger device… so ur funds are 100% secure! But always check the transactions before to submit them

Now it’s time to delegate; choose a pool and watch how ur balance receive rewards :wink:

It will be a 5-6% return on long term (1year)

Happy delegation!

Hi again @alt161 ,

First, congrats on your successful transaction from exchange to your Ledger.

I think @Alexd1985 already explained & answered the whole thing. But let me answer question no.2 → "You just need to install Daedalus again in your new PC. And then paired your Ledger Nano S again. Your ADA will still be there."

Don’t forget to delegate/stake your ADA, to get 5-5,5% reward. See this article below:

Staking and delegating for beginners

And if you want, you could check the tutorial/beginner guide that I posted below

If you have any further question, do not hesitate to ask. Wish you a nice day! :sun_behind_small_cloud:

Thanks for the reply. However I am not able to use neither Yoroi nor Adalite. My windows security won’t allow it. I’ve tried many approaches. Is there another way to make sure that the test 1.0 ADA I sent today is infact securely connected to my ledger device?

Hello Andreas,

For my question # 1: I cannot use neither adalite nor Yoroi as my windows security will not let me. Is there another way to ensure that the 1.0 ADA which I recieved today is secured on my ledger?

Do you have your Transaction ID where you send 1 ADA from exchange to Daedalus? You can check the transaction using Cardano Explorer, and verify if it’s going to your wallet address → https://explorer.cardano.org/en

Could you try again using Yoroi, by using Google Chrome as web browser, and install Yoroi as extensions? And just connect your Ledger Nano S in Yoroi. You should be able to see your 1 ADA in Yoroi also. Any screenshot, why windows security doesn’t allow Yoroi?
