MetaTrader passwords invalid after Windows update


MetaQuotes, the MetaTrader software developer, warns OS Windows users: the October update may lead to problems with logging into the terminal. MetaQuotes recommend to save all the passwords from your trading accounts in a reliable place before starting the update.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update, available to its users from the 10th of October, involves updates of configuration and encryption keys, as with a new OS. This is why all of the passwords that MetaTrader attaches to the OS and the computer hardware will become invalid after the update.

We strongly recommend you to save your passwords in a special file before starting the update process to save the access to your trading accounts.

Also, some of the activated apps from your Market will become unavailable, wince these products are also attached to the Operational System. MetaQuotes have added activation for every product sold, so Market clients will not lose their purchased products. However, demo versions users will have to download them from the Market again.
