Interactive Brokers Secure Login System with txt message authentication

For my IB account I have two authorizaed users (main user A and my wife's username B). I used to just use user B for my QC algo while keep my user A account in TWS to monitor the trades or test with some algos. It was working fine for the past year. Recently, IB required me to add a mobile verification for user B otherwise I would not be able to place any trade either through QC or TWS. I have added the mobile verification for user B but I could not deploy algo through user B on QC any more. IB was sending me the SMS verification each time when I tried to deploy and QC would just simply timeout. Is there a way to get around this issue? THX.

Sorry Jiaqi, we don't support 2FA with Interactive Brokers. It's on our radar though and we'll get to the feature soon.

Got it and thanks. BTW, I think with the verification card you can disable the 2FA so I can use my account A on QC w/o any problem. I have not figured out a way to disable the MSM verification in my IB account management. Does anyone know whether it is possible to disable this type of 2FA? Thanks.

We only require partial opt-out to trade via API; you can keep the account management section covered by 2FA.
