Hi Justus,

The Account ID is a sensitive information as it can be used to login into your account and is one point of security IG check when interacting with our clients. If someone collects your Account ID, Name and email address they might be able to access your account.
For security purposes we hide clients Account ID on the Community and on IG statements.

I hope that it helps.

All the best - Arvin

Yes, this is a serious security risk. If someone gains access to your account number and name, they will be able to access your account and your trading data. This could lead to your money being stolen or your information being used to commit fraud or other illegal activities.

Here are some tips to protect your information when you post trading analytics on social media:

Cover up or edit any sensitive data from your screenshot. This includes your account number, name, email address, phone number and other personal information.
Use video editing software to retouch or remove sensitive data from your video.
Use a hardware token for two-factor authentication (2FA). This will add an extra layer of security to your account, even if someone else gets your password.

I personally use hardware token Protectimus from protectimus.com for 2FA on all my important accounts. Protectimus is a very secure and popular token that supports many different 2FA protocols.

    • It's exciting to think about the possibilities of copy-trading. But it's like a double-edged sword: it can make you an easy profit, but it can also lead to the loss of all your money. Consequently, in order to make profits  and avoid losses, you must select the appropriate elite trader to follow. And DYOR is, in my view, the most effective technique to accomplish this.

    • Naturally after the debut of ERC 404, it was only natural that developers would begin to take advantage of its ability to bridges the gap between fungible (ERC-20) and non-fungible (ERC-721) tokens. One such project is the Dancing Beans ($BEANS) which allows fractional ownership of hilarious meme-inspired creatures NFTs on the blockchain. About a week ago I wrote about the exponential rise of Pandora to 20,000% plus in just five days setting the bar high for competition! I also spoke about other NFT projects like CryptoPunks and Bored Ape Yacht Club but Dancing Beans brings a fresh twist with. While Focusing on fun and interactivity and community-driven approaches the Dancing Beans team is constantly listening to their fans and creating new experiences based on their feedback... For me though, the question is if Beans can follow the successful dancesteps of Pandora and make players, NFT collectors and investors dance about the figures in their wallets. With my fingers crossed, I'm inclined to hold the Beans I bought on Bitget after the recent listing and it has already gone up by 24%... What are your thoughts guys? Pandora style or nah?
