Account Connection

A login and password are used for connection to a trading account. Two types of account access are available in MetaTrader 5 for Android: master and investor. Being authorized with the master password, a user can access the entire functionality of the platform. When using investor authentication, a user can view the account state and analyze prices, but has no access to performing trading operation. Investor access is a convenient tool for demonstrating the trading process on the account.

To connect to an account, tap Open an Account on the account management page.

In this window, select "Login with existing account".
