Enable Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)
The article explains to you how to enable the Two-factor Authentication for your brokerage account.
Our brokerage platform provider and custodian, Interactive Brokers, requires that two-factor authentication (2FA) is enabled. MobileTrader is both our mobile trading platform, as well as your default 2FA security application. Install it on your iOS or Android mobile device now.
Approximately 1-2 weeks after your Euro Pacific Trader account has been activated, you will be required to enter a 2FA code upon login. The code will then be sent to your MobileTrader, which allows you to log into your trading platform. If you have multiple Euro Pacific Trader accounts with distinct usernames, you can access all of those accounts from MobileTrader.
Download and install the app by clicking the buttons below, and then activate the application within minutes.
