Registering at Pocket Option
Registering at Pocket Option is a quick and a simple process that should take no more than a few minutes of your time. Let’s have a look at how it is done.
Start in one click
After opening the main homepage of the broker, you can immediately start your registration on the platform through the “Start in One Click” button.
Once you click the button, there are several options available on the pop-out window, opening a Demo and a real account. A Demo account allows you to learn how to trade different financial markets before risking your capital.
Clicking the “Continue Demo Trading” button will take you to a Demo account, with $10,000 dollars available for practicing your trading. If you feel prepared enough to start with a real account, press “Registration” on the bottom left corner of the page to create a real account.
Registration on the platform is possible using your email address, but also Facebook or Google accounts. Choose the method which is most comfortable for you.
Instead of going throught the One Click option and the Demo account, you can also proceed with registration on the main page of the platform, like shown below.
Registration with email
In order to create an account using an email, you need to enter a valid email address, create a strong password, read and accept the agreement with the terms of the platform and press “Sign Up”. You can change the password later under the “Security” section of your profile if necessary.
Pocket Option will then send you a confirmation email to the address you have indicated with an activation link in it. You need to access the link in order to complete registration and make your account active, like shown on the image below.
Once your email is verified, you can check this by looking at your profile on the account under the “Identity info”.
If for some reason you have not received the verification email, you can complete the verification manually by going on your profile and clicking on the “Resend” button under the “Identity info” section. You should then receive another email with a link in your email box. If that doesn’t work still, you can always contact the support on the platform and the email can be confirmed manually by them.
You can also create an account using your Facebook profile, after allowing access to your name, profile picture and email address, or through your Google account, by entering your phone number or email, and then the password of your account.
In order to start the real trading process you need to deposit at least the minimum amount on your account ($10).
You can always alternate between your real and Demo account on the platform. To do so, click on the Demo account button on the top right corner of the screen, click “Live account” and then “Trading” on the left top corner of the platform interface to switch between the trading modes.
For the safety of the broker and its users, there is also an identity verification procedure at place. Pocket Option is regulated by IFMRRC and tries to take all the necessary steps to prevent money laundering and ensure the safety of its users. Hence, the company may request its user’s identification documentation to get their account verified and unlock all of the trading features under the “Profile section”.
After filling in the basic information on your name and date of birth you need to upload a proof of an identification document. A scan or a photo of your ID (both sides), passport or drivers license (both sides) is accepted. You can drop this as an attached file after selecting the document type and filling in the document number. Colored documents are accepted with all of the edges visible (not cropped) and all of the information on them should be fully visible. You then can track the process of document verification and once it is complete, you will receive a notification.
You may also verify your address by submitting a proof of address, a document containing both the name of the person holding the account and the address; this document may be a bank letter/statement, utility bill or any other letter from an official organization that has been issued no longer than 3 month before submission. This document also cannot be cropped, should be in color and contain all of the visible information.
Hopefully now you can register your account on Pocket Option and enjoy the trading process. Best of luck!
