IB FYI Notifications Now on Mobile

IB FYI notifications are now available in IB TWS for mobile. This powerful system sends you custom push notifications based on your portfolio and trading activity, and is designed to keep you informed of upcoming events that could impact your account.

  • For time critical information, receive push notifications in real-time, as they happen.
  • Configure which FYI events you’d like be notified about directly in your mobile app (please note that if you log into read-only mode, you will be asked to enter your credentials before you can make any configuration changes).
  • Round red badge on IB TWS application icon (where supported) shows the number of unread FYIs.

To disable a mobile device from receiving IB FYI notifications (e.g. in case the device is lost) log in to your desktop IB TWS and delete the device from the FYI Delivery Options page.

Longer Login Password

Currently the login password for mobileTWS is limited to eight characters. This latest release of mobileTWS accepts longer passwords of unlimited length. Please note that you must upgrade to this latest version to be able to use a password longer than eight characters.

Version 8.2 - March 6, 2015

Research Details and sDSA Integration

The Research Details feature gives you mobile access to basic company fundamentals data. Additionally, view independent analyst reports you are accustomed to seeing in your desktop application. To view, click the Research button from the Contract Details page. Note: Upgrade to premium fundamentals content with a subscription to Reuters Fundamentals. Independent Analyst Reports require per-provider subscription (choose from 10+ providers).

Additionally, customers with two-factor authentication (a security card) can now use the new smart phone digital security app, sDSA, and dispense with their security card. Once the app is activated through Account Management, logging in is almost automatic. Once you enter your username and password, the sDSA app opens automatically and reads the TWS challenge code. You enter your PIN (same PIN you currently use to activate your security card) and generate the response, which is transferred automatically to the mobileTWS login screen. Login is then complete.
