MetaMask now supports both Ledger and Trezor hardware wallets

MetaMask is a browser extension which also includes a secure identity vault, providing a user interface to manage a person identities on different sites and sign blockchain transactions.

Last month, MetaMask released v4.9.0, which included support for Trezor hardware wallets.

Today, September 26, MetaMask announced that v4.11.1 of MetaMask now supports Ledger hardware wallets as well.

“Connecting a hardware wallet to MetaMask makes it simple to have the security of cold storage with the convenience of a hot wallet”, – writes the MetaMask team in the announcement, adding:

“Your private keys will always stay in your Ledger. This allows any dapp that works with MetaMask to be used safely and securely with a hardware wallet.”
