Read our frequently asked questions on our mobile dealing apps

How much do the apps cost?

Our apps are free to download.

What are the prices quoted on the app?

The prices quoted are delayed by 15 minutes, but if you are dealing in equities the price quoted when you place a deal is the actual price you deal at.

Can I use the apps outside the UK?

Yes you can, but you must have downloaded the app first as this can only be done within the UK.

How secure are your mobile dealing apps?

Our apps use the same high level of security as our dealing site with all information sent and received securely with a 256-bit encryption. The apps will also time out after 15 minutes of inactivity.

When you login you will be offered the option of having the apps remember your username, and if you choose this then a ‘key’ is created that represents your device and is stored on your mobile device in an encrypted form. We have the functionality to decrypt this key to allow you to login again securely, so even if your device is lost there is no way that the information can be accessed from it.

Do I need new log in details to use the apps?

No, you can simply use your existing username and password.

What are the terms and conditions of the apps?

When you use the apps you are bound by our iPhone and iPad or Android terms and conditions.
