HandyKey


HandyKey is a two-factor security application which you install directly on your iOS mobile device, eliminating the need to carry a separate physical device for logging into your account. Download and install the app using the buttons on the left, and then activate the app in minutes. Clients who maintain multiple accounts with distinct usernames can access all of those accounts from HandyKey. HandyKey is made available to clients whose account equity is $1 million or below.
