Setting up IG Authentification



I have activated two step authorisation. Downloaded app to my phone including authentification app, and all ok.  I downloaded these same apps to my iPad but I can’t set up the authentification app.  It asks me to “Enter codes manually” or “Scan a QR code”. For the first option I need a serial number and an activation code.  I can get the serial number from the app on my phone but where do I get an activation code?  Or otherwise, where do I get a QR code.  Sort of wish I never activated two step authorisation now.

Once set up, 2FA drastically reduces the chance of unauthorised access to your account.

1. Download the 'IG Authentication' app


2. Activate two-factor authentication on your account

3. Enter the code with your password every time you log in

Get started
1. If you have an iPhone, iPad or Android device, download the ‘IG Authentication’ app from the relevant app store.

2. Open MyIG to the dealing platform and visit My Account > Settings > Two-factor Authentication.

3. Follow the instructions to activate 2FA on your account.

To turn two-factor authentication off:
  1. Go to your profile and tap (iPhone) or (Android) in the top right.
  2. Scroll down and tap Two-Factor Authentication.
  3. Tap Require Security Code to move to the off position.
  4. Then tap Turn Off at the bottom of the message that appears.

    • Just wondering if anybody received the dividends payments from Burford Capital. Believe the payment date was last Friday (18/06) but I still haven't had any paid into my ISA account. Thanks, Jeeve
