MetaTrader 5 iPhone/iPad Help

Account Connection

Connecting to an Account

To connect to an account, you need a login and password of a previously opened account. Two types of account access are available in the MetaTrader 5 app for iPhone: 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 operations. The investor access is a convenient tool for demonstrating the trading process on the account.

If extended authentication mode is used for an account, specifying login (account number) and password is not enough for access. The security certificate for that account should be additionally installed in MetaTrader 5 iPhone. More information can be found in "Extended authentication".

New Account

To connect to an account, tap New Account on the account management page. Select "Login with existing account".

Select a server

At this stage, you select a server (a brokerage firm), on which your account was opened. By default, the list does not display all available servers.

In order to find the server of your broker, start typing its name into the search bar.

  • Search results are displayed after you type three characters.
  • Contact your broker to know the server name.

To select a found server, tap on its line.


Specify the following connection parameters on this stage:

  • Login – the number of the account used for connection.
  • Password – the master of investor password for the account.
  • Server – the name of the server for connection.

If you enable the "Save password" option, the next time you will be authorized automatically without having to enter the password. If you disable it, every time you will need to type your password.

To log in, tap "Sign in" at the top of the screen.
