2 Factor Authentication Please

Recommended Posts

Guest Feedback Trader

Hey everyone,

it's 2020 and I really need a IG 2FA ūüė®¬†here with apps like Authy, Lastpass or Google Authenticator to secure my IG Account. Please let users create Auth Codes for 2FA, Backupcodes and so on. Please do not implement own 2FA Apps. No one does this anymore.

The built in option is so out of date - and in the app store you never do updates! 

PLEASE Ig - implement a 2FA. Even banks¬†do have authentication. Why not the best of them - IG ‚̧ԳŹ¬†? Look at facebook, instagram, github, apple, coinbase... And if I am really lucky you will also build an option to allow us traders a login with USB Hardware Keys.

"""Two Factor Authentication gives the user and system administrator a peace of mind as it ensures that even if the users password is compromised the account cannot be accessed without also knowing not only the method used as the second factor but also having access to the second factor such as a dynamically generated one-time password (OTP) or biological token."""

If you need more Feedback on 2FA please feel free to contact me. I can give you a lot of superb examples.

 

Thank you.

Thanks for your feedback. 

We had 2FA but there were some issues for some clients, I will pass this onto our development and technical team to investigate. 

We understand your trading sites need protecting so I will let them know it's vital for some traders. 

All the best

The thought of having thousands of pounds protected only by a password makes me cringe ...

Thank you @CharlotteIG¬†I am really looking forward to this.Without 2FA I really feel uncomfortable ūüė£ and I really do need this. I find myself checking my account too many times a day. I would have fewer withdrawals and deposits if I knew my account is absolutely secure.

@dmedin

absolutely. IG does provide API Trading but no 2FA.

2FA at least via Google/MS Authenticator is a must. IG Authenticator is way too cumbersome to login with daily to glance my positions, particularly when the password is masked.

It would be WAY better if it could utilise push notification via mobile device, the way Microsoft Passport works. Clients should feel encouraged in using this without it being an obstacle.

You're right on that one.

Hey who wants to "steal" your pounds?  They can't move your monies to their bank accounts.  IG only pay to your authenticated linked bank account.  Think about it ok?  Stop worrying and trade happily.

Hey who wants to "steal" your pounds? They can't withdraw your monies into their bank accounts.  IG only pay out into your authenticated linked bank account anyway.  Stop worrying and start trading happily.

IG International doesn't even have the 2FA option, really disturbing :(

At the risk of going against the grain if you do implement this please give users the ability to either use it or not and don't make it a requirement please. I hate having to use 2FA in situations where it's not needed and my equipment is secure and not everyone is married to their phone. The current login method is fine by me and quick, no hassle. And as GTJ above pointed out, as far as I'm aware no one can steal your money, it can only go back to your cards and bank accounts.

Am perfectly fine if others require 2FA but would be livid if IG changed this and not give users the ability to use the old login method as well. I hate being treated like a child, am quite capable of ascertaining what is at risk or not without it being forced upon me.

Do you use online banking?

It doesn't matter how great you think you are, that's not the point.  If IG's internal systems get hacked, your money is gone.

I suggest you get some education on this matter before you proffer your opinion.

Everyone does but honestly I don't see the same issue¬†here as none of my money can be moved to someone else's account. If someone wants to go to the lengths of¬†hacking into my account just to look at my positions, they are welcome¬†ūüôā. My point is I just prefer the ease of quick login esp during volatile periods and when IG systems are down and only certain users can log in (which has happened a few times recently). Same when you want to add funds, if the market is moving quickly, I'd rather not have the extra 15-30secs (or longer) it may take to do it, sometimes it makes a difference. Well in my case it has anyway so its pretty important to me.¬†Without going into detail, I guess everyone's situation is different.

I don't have an issue¬†at all if IG implement 2FA, by all means go for it, keeps everyone pleased. I just don't want to be forced to use it unless I think its necessary for me and then I may think of doing it. I think everyone should have a choice as far as possible. That way everyone's happy¬†ūüėÄ

    • Thanks for clarifying. The support person clearly did not understand this at all, and the website is very vague! The 0.5% is something I'm used to from other platforms, and much easier to absorb as a cost on small positions when making a good entry
    • There was another fork the other day - Bitcoin Latinum - the world's largest "insured" digital asset. One wonders if every time another variant is created¬†it simply draws away potential investors from¬†the original version. I bet committed Bitcoiners wish these variants would all just fork off ūüėČ I saw something the other day that happened to mention that a Bitcoin was worth about 10 ounces of Gold.......then it hit me - would I¬†prefer¬†to be offered one Bitcoin out there in the ether or ten ounces of physical Gold in my¬†actual possession? 10 Bitcoin to buy a single ounce of Gold intuitively feels like the more sensible¬†way around as I'm certain that¬†Gold is safe but several times less certain that Bitcoin is - so we could be out by a factor¬†of 100! But whilst fund managers all start allocating the odd fractional percent to get exposure to Alpha for minimal portfolio downside the price will probably hold or bubble up even more. It will be interesting though¬† if national regulators later turn round and ban funds from holding cryptos - then they will all have to rush for the exit at the same time. Maybe that's the ultimate expected outcome.¬†¬†According to Wikipedia in¬†March 2018¬†0.5% of bitcoin wallets owned 87% of all bitcoins ever mined. Imagine if¬† transferring that 87% to fund managers at peak prices is the intended end-game before it all collapses?¬†It would make Bernie Madoff look like a mere pick-pocket. ¬†
