Additional trading password per session for buying and selling on IG


Recommended Posts

Dear IG Community, 

I have noticed some crypto trading platforms that give clients the option to enter a specific trading password (different to the login password) when carrying out trades on their platform. I see this is a useful security feature (essentially a form of three-factor authentication) in the event that 2FA also gets compromised. 

What do you all think about having this choice? Despite the inconvenience (of doing it each time you log in to your account), I believe it is useful to have for additional peace of mind. The key thing here is to have something optional, rather than forcing every client to do this. 

I look forward to your feedback about this. If there is enough support, hopefully, IG will implement this additional layer of security in the near future. 

Regards,

Lorenzo

    • It has to be honest, especially my humble self & I think the price trend of BTC is gonna be promising which could prolly make me a millionaire, having invested in it.
    • OMNI could be the next big gem in the crypto market & I'm not gonna let it slide through my finger to hold long-term for a good ROI
    • Interoperability: Different blockchain networks follow distinct protocols and rules, making it challenging for them to communicate and share data/assets effortlessly. This creates isolated ecosystems that struggle to interact smoothly. For instance, if a blockchain supply chain system needs to exchange information with a finance blockchain to process payments, the lack of interoperability complicates the process significantly. Scalability: Scalability refers to a blockchain's ability to handle increasing numbers of users and transactions without performance degradation. Many popular blockchains, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, face scalability challenges. They require every node to validate each transaction, limiting their transaction processing capacity. As more users join or transaction volumes rise, the network becomes congested, leading to slower speeds and higher fees. This scalability issue hinders blockchain's use for high-traffic applications like global payment systems or decentralized apps (DApps). To address these challenges, researchers are working on solutions such as: For interoperability - developing standard protocols or "bridges" that enable seamless communication between different blockchains. Examples include Polkadot, Cosmos, and Nervos. For scalability - approaches like sharding (dividing the blockchain into smaller pieces to process transactions in parallel), off-chain scaling (conducting some transactions off the main chain), and others. The Nervos Network, a Layer 1 and 2 blockchain, aims to tackle interoperability and scalability issues using its Proof-of-Work consensus and tools like the Universal Passport for creating "Universal Applications" that can function across different chains. Overcoming these hurdles is crucial for mainstream blockchain adoption, enabling smooth integration with existing systems, high transaction volumes, and interconnected decentralized applications across multiple blockchain networks.
