I keep getting logged out from the platform.

Question

I'm trading a demo account on the IG platform. Every hour or so I get logged out automatically. It's very frustrating. I've contacted IG about this and had a reply from Marcy:

"

We have had no reported issues on our side regarding accounts disconnecting. This normally occurs if you are logged into the same account on different browsers or devices as the platform is designed to be logged in on one instance only.

If you only have one instance of the platform running please also ensure it isn't your Internet connection that drops or that you make use of a VPN service that constantly change your computer's IP address as this could also lead to being logged out.
If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us. Alternatively, we've recently launched our new Help & Support site which gives you answers from our huge knowledge-base, online community, and education hub.
"

None of these apply. I have the platform up in one tab in my browser (Chrome) only. I have the IG app on my phone but I'm not typically logged into that. 

My internet connection is not dropping so far as I am aware, and I'm not using a VPN service.

Any thoughts as to how to stop this?

Thanks.

If you log in to the old platform,go into my Account and then settings.In the preference section scroll to session inactivity and adjust the timeout setting.See if that helps

Thanks. But I can't find the setting you mention. If I log in to www.ig.com and start at the Dashboard, I can try the following steps from there:

1. Click on Demo Accounts at the top. The word "settings" doesn't appear there.

2. Click on "Settings" at the top. The word "preference" only appears after that as "Communication preferences". There is nothing about a timeout setting when I go to that.

3. Go to the demo platform. There is a section called "Settings" there. But no mention of a timeout under that.

I've also tried a search for "timeout" under Help, but it gives no results.

So unfortunately I can't figure out how to do what you are suggesting. Maybe we are looking at completely different things?

I have looked in Settings and all 13 subsections thereof

  • there is not a subsection called 'Preference'
  • I could not find an item within any subsection dealing with being automatically logged out after a specific time

Please would whoever knows the answer to configuring this time be more specific in their instructions.

Thank you

    • Basically, they're letting creators mint NFTs and other digital stuff across multiple blockchains at once. Holograph isn't the only one trying to build bridges between blockchains. Projects like Omnibridge and Wormhole are also in the game, each with their own way of moving your digital assets around.  While Holograph focuses on this "native minting" thing across chains, other projects might be a better fit depending on what you need. Doing your research is key! Definitely something to consider. While Holograph recently scored a cool $11 million in funding, omnichain functionality is still pretty new. They've also got some interesting features, just landed on Bitget, and seems to be building an empire state. There could be bumps in the road, so be sure to do your own research and understand the potential risks. So, what do you think? Is Holograph the future of NFTs, or is it just a bunch of hype? Have you tried any other cross-chain solutions? Let's hear your thoughts in the comments!
    • May 22nd marks Bitcoin Pizza Day, a celebration of the first real-world transaction using Bitcoin. In 2010, Laszlo Hanyecz made history by offering 10,000 Bitcoins for two Papa John's pizzas, showcasing Bitcoin's practical potential. The cryptocurrency community commemorates this milestone with various events, including meetups, webinars, and giveaways. Bitget's Pizza Day Raffle is one such event, offering prizes in cryptocurrencies and tokens. Whether you're interested in Bitcoin's history, community, or uses, this event is worth exploring.
    • HashPack rocks. Their wallet's is easy to use, and they're everywhere in Hedera (dApps, DeFi, NFTs). The Bitget listing is gonna be insane for them.
