MetaTrader 5 Web Platform: Two-factor authentication and password change

What's new in MetaTrader 5

2 December 2016

  • We have added the two-factor authentication option using one-time passwords, which improves protection of accounts against unauthorized access. In order to enable the two-factor authentication, launch the MetaTrader 5 mobile application. Log in and choose the One-time password (OTP) generator option in the Settings window. The OTP generator can bind all your trading accounts and automatically generate a unique one-time six-digit password for each account. Enter this password when logging in to the web platform.

  • Another new option allows changing the master and investor passwords. Take this opportunity to create an easy-to-remember personal ID.
  • Also, the updated web platform can automatically generate demo accounts. Now, you can launch the MetaTrader 5 Web platform from any browser and start trading Forex, Stocks or Futures financial instruments immediately.
