How to delete XRP account from Ledger Nano S


Recommended Posts

I have compromised my Restore Key for my Ledger Nano S. I'm not in the space much except to keep the firmware updated on the device. Unfortunately I was taken by a phishing email and not knowing enough about how and when to restore and reset PIN. Anyway, fortunately, I only had the minimum XRP on the device and now I just want to reset it and start over. I'm reading I can delete the account and recover at least 16 XRP, but the process looks far beyond my knowlege and experience in the space. It's only 21 XRP not worth much now, but who knows 10 years from now. Just looking for some advice.

Reset with new 24 words (which creates new secret key on its secure chip). 

Buy 16 XRP (ca. 10USD). Probably easier than trying to recover it understanding you are new to this. 

If the 16 XRP on your current account becomes really valuable you can always recover it later with the 24 words you have now (assuming you do still have them).
