According the the IB website:

"Seamless Authentication simplifies the process of logging in with IB Key Security via IBKR Mobile. When you log in to Account Management, a notification is sent to your mobile device. Simply confirm the notification on your device and Account Management will respond immediately and log you in."

Can anyone explain how exactly this works when Quantconnect longs into IB? If you are supposed to "confirm the notification" then how can Quantconnect automatically reconnect?

The only way I was able to connect was to go to IB Account Management and select "login" via IBKR Mobile. Then, somehow, Quantconnect managed to connect to my IB trading account.

Can anyone tell me how this is Supposed to work?
