The Plus500 platform can be used on both desktop and mobile devices, and with all operating systems. In addition to Windows, you can also access it from iOS (for Apple devices), Android (for devices with this operating system, including Samsung and Huawei devices), and even via Linux-based systems. In addition to being able to access the platform quickly via any internet browser, you can also access it via download or app.
In this first lesson in the complete Plus500 trading tutorial we will learn how to access the platform from all types of devices.
Using Plus500 on a Browser
Let’s start from the fastest way to access the platform: via an internet browser. The Plus500 platform can be accessed from this page whether you use Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, or any other browser.
All you have to do, to access to the Plus500 trading platform, is to click on it and proceed as follows.
In case you’re not yet registered:
- click here
- Choose the demo mode or the real mode
- Follow the instructions (you just need to give an email address and set a password)
You can also start from the homepage, click on “start trading now” and then in the next page click on the link saying “don’t have an account? Create one now”.
If you’ve already registered in the platform:
- Click on “Start trading now” in the homepage
- Log in with your credentials (which you had set up when you registered).
The Plus500 App
The Plus500 platform is always with you, thanks to its portability on mobile devices. As you well know, these days it’s really easy to download an application, or app, by accessing a virtual store. The main stores are the App Store (Apple) and Google Play (by Google, which works on both iOS and Android and on the Web).
Regardless of the type of mobile device you own, be it a smartphone or a tablet, the procedure detailed below is virtually identical for all.
In our example, we downloaded and installed Plus500 onto an Apple smartphone, the iPhone. The platform also works with older versions of the iPhone, so don’t worry about compatibility.
The first thing we did was to launch the Store and search for “Plus500”. Instead of the “cloud with the arrow” you will see “install” instead. All you have to do is click on “install” and wait about 1 minute. Once the installation is finished, you can click “Open”.
Upon making your choice, you will be taken to the registration page. To use demo mode on the other hand, simply provide an email and set your password.
After entering your credentials and clicking “Create account”, you will enter the Plus500 app. You’ll get $40,000 instantly.
After you click on “OK”, you’ll be in the Plus500 trading app.
Always Be Ready to Trade
Always ready to trade
The following is at the same time a feature of Plus500 and a tip: both wired and mobile devices can be used at the same time. When you trade with CFDs, in fact, you have the opportunity to perform operations quickly, so if at any given time you need to trade, there is no need to go home or to the office to access the platform; just open the app from your mobile device, such as a smartphone or a tablet.
Once you have created an account, you will be able to access it from any device using the same credentials you chose when you signed up.
Sometimes an opportunity may present itself that you don’t want to miss out on, or a position needs to be closed earlier than expected. As for the latter hypothesis, on Plus500 there are tools to automatically close any position incurring losses (according to parameters set by you, the user) but sometimes you can also decide to close them or change them manually. Whatever your needs, and in those instances when your favourite device is not at hand, you can access the platform from any other device: via mobile app, through desktop software, or via browser.
