Forex trading platform developer MetaQuotes has just announced that 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.
To enable the two-factor authentication, clients must 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 their trading accounts and automatically generate a unique one-time six-digit password for each account. The generated password must be entered when logging in to the web platform. If clients follow these steps right, their trade account will be successfully secured afterwards.
Moreover, the updated MetaTrader 5 web platform allows clients to change master and investor passwords. Thus an easy-to-remember personal ID can be created.
Another important featured innovation is the auto generation of demo accounts. Clients can launch the MetaTrader 5 Web platform from any browser and start trading Forex, Stocks, Futures or CFDs financial instruments immediately.
