Ledger, the company which provides popular hardware cryptocurrency wallets like the Nano S and the Nano X, has stated that hacked youtube accounts are the source of origin behind the phishing attacks on its users. The company pleads to its users to be cautious and avoid sharing their 24-word seed phrases.

Ledger is pinning several videos under its channel ‘Ledger’ and ‘Ledger Nano’, to tackle the issue and spread awareness amongst its users. It is warning them against signing up for compromised web wallets, who are making fake promises of free funds.

Hardware wallets are usually as safe as it gets for storing funds and are a mainstay for anyone holding cryptocurrencies. The pretext behind this is that these wallets require physical keypresses to complete any transactions on the device. However, the hackers have the unflinching determination, and they don’t stop trying on investors with their guard down.
