Forex trading involves risk. Losses can exceed deposits

How do I set up two-factor authentication?

To set up two-factor authentication you’ll need to download the IG Authentication app onto your iPhone, iPad, or Android device from the relevant app store. Then log in to My IG on your desktop and go to the ‘settings’ tab. Click on ‘two-factor authentication’ in the list on the left, and follow the instructions.

Two-factor authentication (2FA) is an optional security enhancement for your IG account that improves protection against unauthorised access. If you decide to activate two-factor authentication, you'll need to enter a verification code as well as your password every time you log in. It is not currently compatible with MT4.
