Live Trading Credentials

Hi,
I just learn about QantConnect and I really liked the approach of QantConnect. However I have one concern that I am not able to gain any confidence on it is that I have to type my username and password on QantConnect web site to perform live trading. I do understand earlier response that username and password are on only temporarily stored in RAM, but I don't consider that safe. Will there be alternative login login methods in the future ? What are my options ?

1) Can I run lean from my PC and connect it Via brokerage API while getting tick data "live feed" (live trading) and "historical feed" (for back testing may algorithm) from QantConnect ? Basically very similar to what web interface provides only difference is my PC is used to log into my brokerage API software (I use IB).

2) ??

Welcome Desi, I understand your concerns and was as shocked as you. Unfortunately its out of our control -- it is simply the API design of Interactive Brokers and they don't provide other methods. For Tradier Brokerage we use oAuth 2.0 which also makes it much more robust and avoids you needing to login again for each deployment.

Your other options are --
1) Tradier - oAuth v2, $1 Trades, $2k minimum deposit.
2) Run lean locally, but this will require some setup. Its not quite streamlined for local live trading yet and it won't have a UI.
