  • First time confirming your identity using two-step security?

    There’s an improved way to log in to this website. TD Ameritrade allows you the choice of using two-factor authentication (or multi-factor authentication), which adds another way to verify that you are the owner of your account. You can log in using your password and a text-message security code sent to your phone. All phones must have a North American phone number that can receive text messages.

    Please note that older Apple devices on iOS 12 or lower may have issues with this new login process. If you are unable to update the device software to a newer iOS version, please log in here.
