Why Can't I Login To My IQ Option Account?

Login error in IQ Option

Having trouble logging in? No problem, we have you covered. Here are some of the common issues users face and their stepwise solutions.

#1. Incorrect details 

Haven't logged into your IQ Option account for a while and now can't seem to get access? There's a good chance you have been entering the wrong details. 

If you are sure about your email, the ideal thing to do would be to reset the password. 

Here's how to recover your IQ Option Password.

  • To recover your password click on the Forgot Password option in orange.
  • Enter the email/phone number you used to register and hit Submit on the Password Recovery page.
  • Once submitted, you should see this window.
  • Now login to your email. You will have an email for IQ Option with the subject line, Reset Your Password.
  • Click on the Reset Password button in the email.
  • Enter the new password in the window that opens up and click Confirm
  • After that, hit the Back to Log in Button and log in using the new password.

Note: If you registered using your Facebook account, enter the email you had on your Facebook to recover the password. 

#2. Login limit exceeded

Getting a login limit exceeded error? You have entered the wrong password too many times. Wait for some time before you try to log in again.

If you still aren't sure about the password, click on the Forgot Password button and follow the steps mentioned above.

#3. Two-step verification 

Want to double down on your account security? 2-step verification is the way to go. Here you not only need to remember your password, but will also get an OTP on your mobile number.

That means you can sleep. Rest assured your money and trades are a secret, even if your account were hacked. Here's how to set it up.

  • Once you are logged into your IQ option account, go to the settings page.
  • On the settings page, click on the Safety and Security option.
  • Click on the Confirm Phone Number option that you see below the 2-Step Authentication heading.
  • A new window will open up asking for your phone number. Enter it with the correct country code (+27 for South Africa) and click Get a Code.
  • You will receive a code on your number. Make sure the phone network is active, and you are receiving messages.
  • Enter the code into the box and click Confirm and then Continue.
  • It will ask you to enter personal data next. Enter/change the information you want to and click the Save & Continue option.

If you do not want to be bothered with messages, or find the 2-step authentication processor cumbersome at any point, you can disable it using the slider under the 2-Step Authentication heading.

#4. Account blocked

Was your IQ Option account just blocked? 

While accounts are rarely blocked, things like using someone else's payment details, refusing to provide necessary documents, having multiple accounts, etc., can get you a ban.

You should receive an email regarding the status of your account (don't forget to check the spam folder). But in case you didn't get in touch with the 24*7 customer care via support@iqoption.com.

If there's been a mistake, or once your documents have been verified, the ban can be uplifted. You can resume trading and withdrawals as usual after that. 

For further info, why your account got banned, or what steps you can take - check out the IQ Option Blocked Accounts page.
