On the 2nd of October, Microsoft officially released a major update: Windows 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809). This update affects configurations and encryption keys in a similar way to installing a new Windows operating system. In order to protect the data of MetaTrader users, the platform binds all data to the operating system and hardware of the computer on which it is installed. This protection method ensures that even if your platform files are stolen, no one will be able to connect to the server through your accounts.
However, upon installing the Windows 10 October 2018 Update, all trading account passwords stored on your computer will be reset and will need to be reentered. We highly recommend that before installing the update, you prepare for this by storing all of your passwords in a safe place in order to be able to access your accounts afterwards.
