The process is to create another set of username and password (i.e. 2nd user) for the same IB account for users to execute trades with two logins at the same time.
Hence, for those customers who tend to execute trades manually via IB TWS even when AutoInvest is running on the same account, applying for 2nd user for the specific account is the solution.
Click here to navigate to IB's main page. Log into the "Account Management" portal with your IB username and password.
On the left menu, click "Settings" then "Account Settings". Refer to the bottom right corner after scrolling down, click to configure under "Users & Access Rights".
Click on the '+' and fill in your details accordingly after.
Then, click "CONTINUE" to save.
