IQ Option Has Blocked My Trading Account – How To Unblock It?

On some forums, I’ve read traders’ statements saying that IQ Option had blocked their trading account. Since this broker belongs to my favorite brokers for binary options trading and also it belongs among the favorite brokers of our readers too, I decided to clarify this issue. I directly contacted the manager of IQ Option and we discussed the whole thing.

I asked him: is true that you are blocking accounts? He told me: ‘Yes, it can happen that we block someone’s account, but it is very rare and only happens after violating our terms and conditions.’ So let’s have a look. Do you know what might be the reason, that your trading account has been blocked?

Reasons, why IQ Option might block your account

  • If you deposit or withdraw money from your trading account using the information of another person. It is extremely important that you use your own credit cards and e-wallets to prevent money laundering. You can never deposit money to your trading account from your brother’s/wife’s/friend’s credit card or bank account.
  • Another issue is when the broker discovers that you have multiple accounts. Please be aware that according to the Article 4.2.7 of their Term and Conditions, the trader is only allowed to register 1 (one) valid account. The broker keeps the right to get the accounts blocked for the violation of their policy.
  • If you deliberately provide invalid personal information. For example, minors who provide a different date of birth.
  • When the trader refuses to provide his/her identity card to verify the account and the identity.
  • When the trader is a citizen or a resident of countries that prohibit binary options trading (USA, Australia, Belgium, Israel, Sudan, Syria, North Korea or Japan).

What to do when you cannot log in to your account:

  1. Make sure that you are entering a valid username and password combination.
  2. Check your inbox and spam trash of the e-mail linked to your trading account (you can find an e-mail with the information, why your account has been blocked).
  3. If you didn’t receive any e-mail from IQ Option, contact their customer support, which is available 24/7
    1. A) via e-mail [email protected]
    2. B) on a phone number (see below) to get the fast and qualified assistance you need.

Important info:

  • No account can be blocked without a serious reason. IQ Option is a regulated company that can’t just block somebody’s money.
  • You have to submit your identification documents (see Identity verification below) within 7 days of registration, otherwise your account might get blocked.
  • The account holder is always informed by e-mail and warned about the intention to block the account. IQOption always explains the reasons and suggests the steps that need to be taken to get the account unblocked.
  • Once IQ Option receives the information or the documents proving that the actions of the trader were legal, they unblock the account immediately.
  • If your account is blocked and after have deposited money into your account, the money will be sent back to you automatically within a few days. However, banks might take a long time to process the refund. Especially in India, Brazil and South Africa, refunds may take up to a few weeks.

Blocking accounts without any reason is ILLEGAL and would get our platform suspended. So far the number of accounts in our system has grown to more than 15 millions. After the launch of a new, more professional and exciting products we expect a further rapid growth of new users.

Whenever you want to know detailed information on any topic, you can contact their customer support service. It often happens that people make misleading and not objective comments which are influenced by their emotional state or by other factors.

Identity verification

All brokers require some type of identity verification prior to the funds withdrawal. For example, HighLow requires a proof of identity even before initial funds are deposited. Other brokers require the proof before first withdrawal of funds. This proof consists of:

  • Identity verification (a scan of national ID, a passport or a driver’s license)
  • Proof of residence (a scan of energy bill, a bank statement or a credit card statement)
  • Credit card verification (a scan of you card, if a deposit is made with a credit card – you can hide the middle 8 numbers, of course)

You might ask yourselves what is the point of above procedure. Basically, if broker wants to be regulated, they need to have verified clients. Regulatory bodies such as CySEC require verifications to prevent money laundering or credit card thefts.

  2. Hello
    Thank you for the information… We are two roommates living together but have a single PC for the time being. What would happen if we both use same laptop but separate IQ and bank accounts ? Is it possible

    1. Dera Farooq, that should be alright. I don’t see a reason why this should be banned. As long as you both use separate accounds and separate funding methods.

  3. after deposit in my account i send my id card for verification ,next day without sending me any email my acount is blocked . its really worst that such a big broker do such acts without giving any reasons . i contact there support but no response yet .

    1. Hello,

      binary options are not a game, so you are not playing it. It’s trading with a high risk. Before you will start trading be sure, that you have the proper knowledge.

      Read our articles about trading to get into it. And before you start trading with real money, try a demo account.

      All information about trading with IQ Option in Pakistan, you will find here –

      Btw: You need to be 18 years old to start trading.

      We wish you a good luck!

The next document you need is a bank statement/energy bill/phone bill. Check out our IQ Option review – you will find there more information about the verification process.

      Have a nice day.

    1. Hello Muhammad, you seem to like that you are really interested in trading with IQ Option broker 😀 😀 Documents you need to verify your trading account are still the same.

      Here is it:

      – Identity verification (a scan of national ID, a passport or a driver’s license)
      – Proof of residence (a scan of the energy bill, a bank statement or a credit card statement)
      – Credit card verification (a scan of your card, if a deposit is made with a credit card – you can hide the middle 8 numbers, of course)

      Hope that it will help you. Btw: you should invest your money just in case you are ready 😉 Do not hurry.

    1. Hello, how is it even possible to provide the wrong email, I thought that you need to confirm the registration on the email? I recommend you to write to IQOption support.

    1. Hello, what happens, why do they close your account? I recommend you to contact the support and solve the problem with them, or let us know more info so we can help you.

      Have a nice day.

  13. Good day friends, I want to warn you strictly on this broker, please don’t ever invest with this broker because they are thieves and they stole my money.

    1. Hello, do you have any justified allegation? Or you just hear that this broker is a scam? There are many and many people (except me) who are trading with this broker for a couple of years and we didn’t had any problem, never.

      Maybe you are right, maybe now. Would it be possible to give us more info? Thank you so much.

  14. I need to know few things. the IQ options is completely new to me. i have visited the site and tried to understand the system i know it will take some time to get a hold on it. but before i go for the real account i need to know :

    1. does it work from Pakistan?
    2. Can we use payoneer to deposit and withdraw funds ?

    1. Hello, thank you so much for your answer.

      1) I think that the broker iqoption should works for Pakistan traders
      2) I find out that you can’t use payoneer to withdraw funds.

      Instead of payoneer try to use Skrill or any other digital wallet.
      I hope that I will help you with my answers. If you have any other questions let us know.

    1. Hi, I think it should be OK. Why do you need that? Please never try to disguise your real location because then you might get in trouble when you’re not able to confirm your address.

  15. how can one give a poof if you blocked their account already step? so to be safe we should always screenshot every log in/logout from our account to have proofs? i have heard that if you are doing good with the trading, the block your account? may i ask you sir? how do iq option profit from all of this? is it when a trader lose? or when a trader wins?

    1. Hi Faith, it would be enough for us to see email communication, screens of blocked account, proof of depositing… Anything that could help us do something. If someone really gets scammed, I am sure there are ways to prove it.

      1. At terms and conditions not even a single word about robots, does ti mean I can use robots?? But I read of of the forums theres an iq option manager there that robots violates their terms and conditions but theres no mention about robots on their official site.

  16. I somehow couldn’t log into my account, i don’t know whether someone hack it or got blocked. Please help me sir, and i already made a deposit.

  17. You can believe whatever you want about IQoption, but the truth is they are crooks. They were to close my account out after cheating me out of 10% of my account. Upon my request my account was closed ,but as I have read from others, my money was never returned. I have contacted them and have been ignored. They are nothing but crooks and I will continue to let anyone and everyone know the truth

    1. Dear John, thank you for sharing your story. But before we do anything, you have to prove what you are saying is wrong. You see, it happens often, that people try to blame the broker for their own fault. I have never seen any real proof of IQ Option being crooks. If you can prove it, please! Do it! If not, I am sorry, but I cant believe you – I have never had ANY problem with them. All deposits were fast, just as withdrawals.

    2. sorry for you but I always get my money to my sweden bank takes two days no problemas her 250 dollar, out two times works good

  18. Good Day

    My Account is blocked on the same day i sent my documents?

    I am unable to trade and my funds are still in the account, No one is replying to my emails

    Who can help me?

    1. Dear Karin, please, try to send them a message on live support. It might take some time, they must be currently overloaded with new people flooding in.

    2. Dear, my account is also locked. It was locked because some-one hack my account , close my positions and try to withdraw funds.
      As I’m aware, funds can only be withdrawn to same card which made a deposit and as I didn’t made deposit over e-wallet those withdrawal also are not possible.

      I hope IQ will reset my account , cancel all irregular withdrawals and restore my positions.

      I send all documents on support but still no answer. How long will that last?


        1. Dear Step,

          I just call them. It seams that security department need some time to process and investigate the case. As account was blocked in Sunday I hope they will finish until Friday.

          It’s not a problem for me to wait as long as they fix account and that all my positions are restored and all irregular withdrawals canceled.

        2. I did…they say that security department will investigate and replay until Thursday.
          So wait until tomorrow to see will this be solved and my account restored.

  19. I have submitted All of my documents in the form of picture so will that work?
    Picture of my passport and bank card but still then no respond.

    1. Hi Harka – you have to wait a bit. It usually takes them a few hours or even days. Currently there is thousands of new traders coming every day, it must have slowed things a bit down. Sorry for the wait!

  20. my account was blocked 4 days back on saturday. After that i uploaded all the required documents as told by the support staff.
    still my account is blocked. Please help

    1. Dear Abishek, when did you upload your documents? Sometimes it might take up to 48 hours to get it re-checked. Also, you can send them a support ticket, so they might do it earlier.

    1. Kumar, we are going to need your credientals if you want us to help you. Also, I talked to the support and they said, that they always reply to messages.
