MetaQuotes announces two-factor authentication and password change in MT5 Web platform

Forex trading platform developer MetaQuotes has just announced that 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, clients must launch the MetaTrader 5 mobile application. Then log in and choose the One-time password (OTP) generator option in the Settings window. The OTP generator can bind all clients’ trading accounts and automatically generate a unique one-time six-digit password for each account. This password must be entered when logging in to the web platform.

Another new option allows changing the master and investor passwords. This opportunity can be taken to create an easy-to-remember personal ID.

The updated web platform can also automatically generate demo accounts. Clients can now launch the MetaTrader 5 Web platform from any browser and start trading Forex, Stocks, Futures or CFDs financial instruments immediately.
