You have been waiting, we have been working on this and here we are proud to announce that our accounts are EVEN SAFER now!

I will remind you that we use the HTTPS connection to ensure that all data gets encrypted. HTTPS is a protocol for secure communication over a computer network.

We have now added the Two- Step Authentication.

What is Two Step Authentication?

Two- step authentication is a method of securing accounts requiring that you not only know something (a password) to log in but also that you possess something (your mobile device). The benefit of this approach to security is that even if someone guesses your password, they need to have also stolen your phone in order to break into your account.

At IQ Option, we offer two- step authentication via the mobile device. We first verify your mobile device by sending a code when you register an account with us. Once you’ve verified your device, any time you log in with your password, we send a new code to your device, which you must input before logging in.

It adds a small extra step to the login process but makes your account much more secure.

To switch the option please go to the SETTINGS, here is how:

Security

You will get the code to your phone number within seconds, you will need to enter it to confirm the command.

Then once you log in next time, we will send you a new code, if have you ever used the online banking apps/websites- it works the same way here.

If you do not feel like being bothered with extra security measures, you are free to disable the feature in the same Settings tab of your personal cabinet.

For now, the feature is only available for the web users but we will be implementing it on the mobile version soon too.

Try the feature and tell us what you think!
