2 December 2016
Following numerous client requests, we have improved protection of accounts against unauthorized access in the MetaTrader 5 web platform. The enhanced protection includes the two-factor authentication using one-time passwords and the ability to change master and investor passwords.
In order to enable the two-factor authentication, launch the MetaTrader 5 mobile application. Log in and choose the OTP generator option in the Settings window. The One-time password (OTP) generator can bind all your trading accounts and automatically generate a unique one-time six-digit password for each account. Enter the generated password when logging in to the web platform. Congratulations! Your trade account is now secured.
Moreover, the updated MetaTrader 5 web platform allows you to change master and investor passwords. Take this opportunity to create an easy-to-remember personal ID.
Another important featured innovation is the auto generation of demo accounts. Now, you can launch the MetaTrader 5 Web platform from any browser and start trading Forex, Stocks or Futures financial instruments immediately. Launch MetaTrader 5 Web and test all the new features of the popular platform's web version!
