In addition to usual login/password, now you are able to control authorization by IP addresses and confirm it using MetaQuotes ID. Such a system won't allow attackers to gain access to your MQL5 account, even if they know your login and password.
If you have specified MetaQuotes ID in your profile (on the
"Security" tab), you can enable the "Binding to IP address" functions.
The "Authorize from allowed static IP addresses only" option allows
you to reject authorization from new IP address without additional
confirmation. If you enable this option, every time you authorize at
MQL5.com you will need to specify not only your login/password, but also
six digit code obtained using MetaQuotes ID.
When the "Control session by IP" is enabled, website will also
constantly check IP address from which every subsequent request is sent.
If for any reason during a session your IP is changed, you will need to
authorize again by entering a verification code. Now you have complete
control over IP addresses of sessions, so that you can secure your
At the same time in order to skip receiving and entering confirmation
code every time you log in, you can specify up to three static IP
addresses as trusted ones. When authorizing from these IP addresses, you
will only need to enter login/password. But if you try to authorize
from a new IP address the website will request a verification code
again. This way, you don't need to re-enter confirmation code each time,
but attackers won't be able to access your account.
If the above mentioned options are disabled, you can just get a
notification that your account was authorized from a new IP address. If
you authorize from trusted IP addresses you won't receive such messages.
If you enable this function ("Notify about IP address changes via
MetaQuotes ID") you will almost instantly know about authorization to
your account from a new IP address. And if you get such message while
you haven't authorized on the site, then someone else have authorized
under your account.

Your hardware doesn't matter. Mobiles and laptops get and use "local" IP addresses from their router / network provider.
The IP address that is provided to websites like MQL5.com is always the "global/external" IP address of your router / network provider.
And this IP address changes as often as you are logged into another mobile network or WLAN or if your router reconnects to your internet provider.
So it's more or less useless for every user without a static IP address.
I have a problem to sign in
The system didn't accept my password, so I changed it.
But it asked me for ID, but when I enter ID, it tells me that it is not true and shows me that IP changed.
What should I do?
