Easy accessibility is one of the main factors to consider when choosing the digital options trading platform to use. That is, how easily can I access the platform using different devices.

IQ Option is accessible in a number of ways including web browser, smartphone app and desktop computer apps. This guide will focus on the desktop apps built for the two most popular operating systems, Windows and MacOS.

Besides accessibility, IQ Option desktop apps run independent of the main site. This makes them lightweight ensuring fast trade execution.

They’re also quite secure and come inclusive of all tools and features you’ll find on the web browser version.
If you already have an IQ Option trading account, it’s synced with your desktop app.

This means all trades done on the browser or smartphone app will be visible on the desktop app.
