MetaTrader 5 iOS build 1335: account migration from MetaTrader 4 and convenient transfer of security certificates

The latest build of MetaTrader 5 iOS allows you to quickly transfer the SSL certificate from the desktop to the mobile platform. You even do not need iTunes. Simply open your desktop MetaTrader 5 and select the transfer by right-clicking the account in the Navigator window.

Specify the master password of the account in the new window and set the new password consisting of 8 digits to protect the certificate. Next, launch the mobile application and connect to your account. You will be immediately offered to import the certificate — agree to do that and enter the numeric password you have set in the desktop MetaTrader 5. The transfer is complete.


The certificate transfer via the trade server is secure: encryption is performed at the client's side, and the password you have set is not transferred or stored on the trade server.

Another important innovation is support for the migration of accounts with open orders, positions, and trading history from MetaTrader 4. If the broker moves your account from MetaTrader 4 to MetaTrader 5, you will see the migration dialog window. The system will greet you, provide you with information on the new platform features, and offer to change your password.

Update your application right now. The latest version of MetaTrader 5 with an increased security level is already available on the App Store!
