It's easy to securely log into your IB application, such as TWS, Account Management, using your Security Code Card. Simply find and enter the correct values from your card into the PassCode Authentication Box on the IB website.
Secure Login with the Security Code Card
- Start by logging into your IB application as always, using your IB username and password.
The PassCode Card Authentication box pops up.
- Locate the first Index number in the authentication box.
In our example below, the first Index number is "100."
- Using your Security Code Card, locate that Index number, and look immediately to the right to find its corresponding card value.
In our example the Index number "100" has a corresponding card value of A3D.
- Type that value in the entry field of the PassCode Card Authentication box on the website.
- Follow steps 2 and 3 above for the next Index number.
In our example, the second Index number is "50" and its corresponding card value is Z3V.
