What can you do with it?

Mobile Level 3 allows convenient and secure authentication for the following actions:

Login to your trading platform
Login to your Swissquote app
Trading operations
Payments & transfers
Making changes to your profile


Are there other alternatives?

To ensure the security of your account, Swissquote always requires two-factor authentication to verify your login and transactions.

We highly recommend Mobile Level 3 as your authentication method, as it is the fastest and most secure option.

If for some reason Mobile Level 3 is not an option for you, the Level 3 Card, which you are prompted to download on your first login after opening your account, can be used as an alternative for all operations except payments. If you lose the card, you can contact our Customer Care Centre to obtain a new one.


How to confirm an action with Mobile Level 3

The authentication window pops up when performing an important operation.
With Mobile Level 3 activated, you will receive a notification on your smartphone. Tap it, then authenticate with PIN or biometrics to proceed.
Verify that the confirmation code in the authentication window matches the code on your smartphone.
Tap “Confirm” to validate the operation.


Mobile Level 3 is available to all clients with a Swissquote account. It can only be activated on a single device.

The Swissquote app must be installed on a compatible device:

iPhone or iPad – check the app description on the App Store to see supported iOS versions

Android smartphone or tablet – check the app description on Google Play or the Huawei AppGallery to see supported Android versions

Keep your app updated!

For security reasons, some Mobile Level 3 functionalities may be unavailable if you have an outdated version of the Swissquote app installed on your device.
