Your account protection is our priority

We take account security and protection very seriously. From innovative encryption technology to multi-step authentication, we take extra precautions to ensure your assets are safe and your account is secure.

Secure login system

In addition to creating a unique username and password, all Zacks Trade clients must use a security code device or mobile application for multi-factor authentication.

Zacks Trade recommends clients request a secure login card when they fund their account. Otherwise, new clients will automatically receive a card by mail the month after the account is opened.

Using our secure login system adds an essential extra layer of security to your account to keep your information and your assets secure.

Additional security features

   SSL encryption

Zacks Trade uses 128-bit SSL encryption to secure the connection between your computer and our platforms. (Using SSL may impact performance on some PCs.)

   Automatic account timeout

You will be logged out of your account automatically after a specified period of inactivity.

      Failed login attempts

Zacks Trade restricts account access after a set number of failed login attempts.

Account insurance protection

Zacks Trade is a member of SIPC, which protects securities customers of its members up to $500,000 (including $250,000 for claims for cash). Explanatory brochure available upon request or at Protection is available only for securities and for cash held in connection with the purchase or sale of securities, in equities and equities options accounts. The SIPC does not provide protection for commodities or related contracts or futures contracts or any warrant or right to subscribe to, purchase or sell any of the same, other than futures contracts or options on futures contracts received, acquired, or held in a portfolio margining account carried as a securities account pursuant to a portfolio margining program approved by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

As with all securities firms, SIPC coverage provides protection against failure of a broker-dealer, not against loss of market value of securities.2 Please note that SIPC Insurance Protection does not protect accounts that are compromised or when fraudulent activity occurs. Please visit the SIPC website here to learn more.

1 For the purpose of determining a Zacks Trade customer account, accounts with like names and titles (e.g. John and Jane Smith and Jane and John Smith) are combined, but accounts with different titles are not (e.g. Individual/John Smith and IRA/John Smith).

2 SIPC is a non-profit, membership corporation funded by broker-dealers that are members of SIPC. For more information about SIPC and answers to frequently asked questions (such as how SIPC works, what is protected, how to file a claim, etc.), please refer to the following websites:
