IBKRモバイル認証(IB Key)を新しいスマートフォンへ移行する方法

IBKRモバイルアプリを同時に幾つかのデバイスにインストールしていても認証モジュール(IB Key)はひとつのスマートフォンが一括して行います。このためその他のデバイスで必要となる二段階認証もすべてこのスマートフォンで行います。

しかしながら複数のスマートフォンをお持ちの場合や、紛失によって別のスマートフォンに替える場合には、弊社のクライアントサービスにご連絡いただかずにIB Keyを移行することができます。IB Keyの移行を行うと、ひとつめ/古いスマートフォンの二段階承認機能を削除して、ふたつめ/新しいスマートフォンに移動することができます。
 
この作業はご利用のスマートフォンを紛失された場合や新しいものに交換する場合、または出張や休暇の際にアクセスがない場合などに行うことができます。
 
    動作環境: 
    - 以下の手順はふたつめ/新しいスマートフォンにで行ってください。作業にあたってひとつめ/古いスマートフォン(IB Keyが現在有効になっているもの)は必要ありません
    - フィジカルセキュリティデバイスをご自身のユーザー用にお持ちでない限り、移行作業にあたってテキストメッセージ(SMS)を携帯電話に送信する必要があるため、IB Keyの有効化に使用した元の携帯電話番号へのアクセスが必要になります。

二段階認証プロセスを使用するIBKRモバイル認証

概観: 

IBでは二段階認証プロセスを使用して、お客様の資産と口座を不正なアクセスより保護するために努めております。二段階の認証保護を使用することにより、口座へのアクセスには「お客様のご存知のこと」(ユーザー名とパスワードの組合せです)、ならびに「お客様がお持ちのもの」(ユーザー名とパスワードに続いて入力するランダムなコードを作成するツールです)が必要になります。 この保護システムはオンラインハッカー(マルウェアやソーシャルエンジニアリングを利用して個人のパスワードを入手する人物)によるお客様の口座へのアクセスするリスクの軽減を目的としています。

弊社では幾つかの二段階認証のオプションをご用意しておりますが、IBKRモバイルは通常その中でもアクセスと操作において一番使いやすいものとしてご利用いただいています。以下はこちらのアプリの利用しやすい点をまとめたものになります。

 

1. いつでも使える: 
いつでもお持ちのスマートフォンとツールで、IB口座に安全にアクセスできます。

2. 便利に使える:
トラッキングや確認が必要なデバイスを別に持つ必要がありません。携帯電話の紛失や変更の際には弊社のクライアントサービスが、即座にアプリのバックアップのサポートを致します。

3. 素早く有効化:
アプリのダウンロードからほんの数分で口座認証に使えるようになります。

4. 郵送や返却の必要なし:
配達の遅れやバッテリーの劣化によるデバイスの返却はありません。ダウンロードするだけで使えます。

5. 安全で素早いログイン:
取引プラットフォームやアカウント・マネジメントにログインする際に必要になるのはユーザー名とパスワードだけです - IBKRより通知を送信致しますので、ご自身で設定されている指紋かPINで認証を完了させてください。

6. ひとつのアプリで複数ユーザーを認証:
お持ちの個人口座やビジネス口座、また配偶者の方とのジョイント口座すべてに同じセキュリティデバイスをご利用の方は、これらすべてに同じアプリを有効化して使うことができます。

7. すべてのスマートフォンで、どこからでも:
iPhoneをご利用の場合には、Apple AppストアからIBKRモバイルのダウンロードができます。アンドロイドをご利用の場合には、Google Playストアよりダウンロードしてください。中国在住のお客様はBaiduおよび360.cnストアの両方からダウンロードできます。

8. オフラインでも利用可能:
IBKRモバイルは携帯電話がオフラインになっていても(休暇中や、シグナルを受信できない場合など)使うことができます。認証機能にアクセスができなくても、口座へのアクセスと取引に必要なコードをアプリが作成します。

9. 安全にパスワードをリセット:
IBKRモバイルをインストールの上、IB Key認証が有効化されますと、弊社クライアントサービスよりお客様の携帯電話に安全な方法で一時的なパスワードが送信されます。テキストメッセージなどの通信方法で情報が見えてしまうことはありません。

10. フットプリントは小さく:
IBKRモバイルはデータの容量がどんなに少なくてもインストールできます。アプリのサイズはセキュリティを妥協することなく、必要最低限にとどめられています。

How to migrate IBKR Mobile Authentication (IB Key) to a new smartphone

You may have the IBKR Mobile app installed simultaneously on multiple devices but the integrated authentication module (IB Key) can only be active on a single smartphone, on which you will complete the Two-Factor authentication tasks triggered from any other device.

Nevertheless, if you possess multiple smartphones or if you lost/replaced your smartphone, you have the possibility to migrate the IB Key activation, without the need of contacting IB Client Services. The IB Key migration allows you to carry on the Two-Factor authentication tasks on your secondary/new smartphone, while removing this capability from your primary/old device.
 
This procedure can be used in case you lost/replaced your device or in preparation for a business trip or for a holiday period, during which you will not have access to it.
 
    Requirements: 
    - This procedure will be entirely performed on your secondary/new smartphone. You do not need to be in possession of your primary/old smartphone (where IB Key is currently active)
    - Unless you have a physical security device active for your user, you need to have access to the mobile phone number you originally used to activate the IB Key, since we will send a text message (SMS) to that mobile number as a part of the migration procedure.
     

    Once you have reviewed the above requirements, please click one of the below links, according to the operating system of your secondary smartphone

How do I enable the Notifications for the IBKR Mobile app

概観: 

What is a notification?

A push notification is a brief message which is sent ("pushed") from a back-end server to your device over the Internet. Apps developers use those attention-grabbing messages to quickly and effectively reach the recipients, even if they are not currently engaging with their application. Notifications can deliver information to users or advise them of a specific action they are invited or required to perform.

Background: 

Why does the IBKR Mobile app use notifications?

The IBKR Mobile application uses notifications for informational purposes, as well as two-factor authentication. In the latter case, the user is invited to tap on the notification, which will automatically open the IBKR Mobile app and begin the authentication process.

This procedure explains how to manually enable notifications for the IBKR Mobile app. Please click the link below that matches your smartphone's operating system.

Apple iOS

1. On your home screen, tap Settings (Figure 1), then Notifications (Figure 2) and finally IBKR (Figure 3)
 Figure 1                                                 Figure 2                                                   Figure 3                                 
2. In the IBKR app settings, you will see a number of different options. We recommend to set them in the following way (Figure 4):
  • Allow Notifications: enabled
  • Lock Screen, Notification Center, Banners: selected
  • Banner style: Persistent
  • Badges: enabled
  • Show Previews: Always
 Figure 4

 

Android

1. Go the Settings of your phone, then tap Apps & notifications1 (Figure 1) then IBKR Mobile (Figure 2) and finally App notifications (Figure 3)
 Figure 1                                                    Figure 2                                                     Figure 3                           
 
2.  Ensure that notifications for this app are globally On and the switches Allow notification dots, Allow interruptions, On the lock screen are all enabled (Figure 4). According to your personal preference, you may want to enable as well the switch Override Do Not Disturb
 Figure 4

Please note that menu items labels and positions may vary according to your device vendor and software version.
 

Notes

1. The Apps & notifications item may be called Sound & notification on certain devices

I am not receiving IBKR Mobile notifications

概観: 

What is a notification?

A push notification is a brief message which is sent ("pushed") from a back-end server to your device over the Internet. Apps developers use those attention-grabbing messages to quickly and effectively reach the recipients, even if they are not currently engaging with their application. Notifications can deliver information to users or advise them of a specific action they are invited or required to perform.

Background: 

Does the IBKR Mobile app use notifications?

The IBKR Mobile application uses notifications to deliver alerts and other information, as well as for the needs of the 2-Factor authentication. In this last case, the user is invited to tap on the notification - this will automatically call the IBKR Mobile app, through which the authentication process needs to be completed.

 

What are the prerequisites for receiving IBKR Mobile notifications?

In order to receive the IBKR Mobile notifications the following requirements have to be met:

  • The IBKR Mobile app must be installed on your device
  • Your device must be connected to the Internet (through WiFi or through a mobile data connection, such as EDGE / 3G / 4G / LTE). If you are located in China, please check additionaly Note a. on this topic
  • If you are aiming to receive the Seamless Login notifications, the authentication module of the IBKR Mobile app has to be active. For details please see KB2260

 

I do not receive IBKR Mobile notifications. What can I do?

If you met the prerequisites listed above but you still have troubles receiving IBKR Mobile push notifications, please perform the additional checks listed below.

 
1. Ensure you are not actually just missing or overlooking the notifications
Certain device configurations may cause the notifications to hide quickly or not to be shown when the device screen is locked. Please bear in mind that you can, at any time, access your unread notifications history, usually by swiping your finger down from the top edge of your screen.
 
2. Ensure your phone is not currently in "Airplane", "Flight" or "Do not disturb" mode
The "Airplane"(also called "Flight") mode cuts off all the device connections, preventing the device from interfering with plane instruments during a flight. Usually, when this mode is active, a small airplane icon is displayed in the top bar of your device's screen.
The "Do not disturb" mode is used to cut off calls, alerts and notifications when the device owner does not want to be disturbed. Usually, when this mode is active, a half moon or a stop icon is displayed in the top bar of your screen.
The easiest way is to disable those modes is from the quick settings panel, which can be opened by swiping the finger up from the bottom of your screen on Apple iOS devices (Figure 1) or by swiping your finger down from the top of your screen on Android devices (Figure 2)
Figure 1                                                                            Figure 2
    
Note: On Android devices, the position and name of the items may vary according to the device vendor and software version.
 
3. Make sure the notifications are enabled for the IBKR Mobile app
When you installed the IBKR Mobile app on your device, the system prompted you to allow the notifications for the app itself. If at that time you denied that access, you would now need to manually enable the notifications from your smartphone settings. Should you need additional guidance for this procedure, please see KB3236.
 
4. Check whether the power saving mode of the phone is not preventing notifications
Conservative power mode settings usually lower battery consumption by limiting or disabling background app communication and refresh. This often prevents as well notifications from being delivered to your device. You can check the power scheme currently in use on your smartphone as follows, according to your device Operating System:

Click here if you want to skip those instructions and jump directly to the next item - point 5.

 

Apple iOS

If the Power Saving Mode is on, the battery indicator on the top right of your Desktop will show the charge level in yellow
 Figure 3
You can switch off the Power Saving by swiping the finger up from the bottom of your screen and tap the battery icon in the Control Center (Figure 4)
Figure 4
 
 
If the battery icon is not present there, you can toggle the switch Low Power Mode from the Settings of your phone, section Battery (Figure 5, 6, 7)
  Figure 5                                             Figure 6                                     Figure 7
  

 

Android

If Battery Saver is on, the top and bottom bars of your device Desktop will have an orange background and the battery icon will contain a "+" sign.
 Figure 8
 
The easiest way to disable the function is from the Quick Settings panel, which you can open by swiping your finger down from the top of your screen. You can then tap the battery icon (Figure 9)
 Figure 9
 
If the battery icon is not present within the Quick Settings panel, you can tap the Settings icon from the screen and tap on Battery. There you can toggle the Battery saver switch (Figures 10, 11, 12)
 Figure 10                                     Figure 11                                                 Figure 12
  

Note: The position and name of the items may vary according to the device vendor and software version.

5. Check whether your mobile Internet connection has enough speed and stability 
Look at the top bar of your device's screen and check whether the Wi-Fi or the carrier data (EDGE / 3G / 4G / LTE) signal reception is enough strong and stable for receiving data. You can perform a quick test by opening a website through the phone web browser and perform a web search or visit ibkr.com
 
6. Ensure your device is not jailbroken/rooted
A jailbroken / rooted device allows the installation of apps and tweaks not authorized by the software and/or hardware vendor. This is achieved by obtaining a complete (root) access to the device's Operating System and removing the security measures and restriction originally built-in. This operation invalidate the device warranty, can compromise or make completely unusable certain functionalities and severely lowers the overall security of the device.
For those reasons, on a jailbroken / rooted device we can not guarantee the IBKR Mobile app will remain in a fully operational state. The whole app or some of its features (especially the authentication module and related notifications) may not function as expected.
 
7. Force a sync between the IBKR Mobile app and the back-end systems
If you went through all the above steps and still do not receive the IBKR Mobile notifications on your device, we recommend that you perform a one time login to the Account Management using the manual challenge/response authentication method. This operation will re-align the app parameters with our back-end systems and should trigger the seamless authentication method to be reinstated for the future login attempts. Please proceed as follows:

a. On www.ibkr.com click on Log in --> Account Management

b. Enter your credentials and click on Login

c. Should you have multiple SLS devices active, select "IB Key" from the device drop-down

d. If you see a note stating that a message has been sent to your phone, click the link "Click here if you did not receive the message" and the system will show you a 6 digits Challenge number

e. On your mobile device, open the IBKR Mobile app, then tap Authenticate  (should you not see the button Authenticate, tap first on the link Services on the top left of the screen)

f. Enter the Challenge number you obtained at point d. in the Challenge field and tap Generate Response. Once you have provided your security element (PIN, FaceID, Passcode) you will receive a 8 digits Response String

g. On the Account Management login screen, enter now the Response String you obtained at point f.

h. If the code has been accepted, you will be logged in to the Account Management.

i. Logout from the Account Management and try to log in again. This time you should receive the notification on your mobile device.
 

If you still do not receive the IBKR Mobile notifications after having checked all the above points from 1. to 7. please contact IB Client Services at your earliest convenience for further troubleshooting.

 

Notes
a. The access to Google services is blocked within China. Because of this restriction, notifications are usually not delivered on Android devices used within that Country. IB has no possibility of intervention or control over this limitation.

Regulations Mandating Two-Factor Protection

概観: 

Regulators in certain jurisdictions have imposed requirements that brokerage clients use Two-Factor Authentication when accessing their account. These requirements currently impact residents of Hong Kong and India with details provided below.

Hong Kong-based accounts

On 27 Oct 2017, the Securities & Futures Commission of Hong Kong (SFC) issued revised guidelines aimed at reducing the information security risks associated with internet trading.  All registered and licensed persons engaged in internet trading are required to comply. The Hong Kong Monteary Authority (HKMA) simultaneously issued a circular on the same day requiring all registered institutions to implement the requirements listed in the guidelines.

Per article 1.1 of the SFC guidelines, all clients are required to be enrolled in Two-Factor Authentication. As a result, we are no longer able to provide Hong Kong accounts with the ability to opt out of the Secure Login System.

 

India-based accounts

On March 25, 2014 the National Stock Exchange of India (NSEI) issued a circular with new requirements for stock brokers that operate in India. Per regulation 3b, all brokers must implement Two-Factor Authentication for Indian clients. As a result, we are no longer able to provide India accounts with the ability to opt out of the Secure Login System.
