A cTID is a set of credentials used for signing in across all cTrader platforms. The cTrader ID (cTID) is used to access all cTrader platforms across different brokers by using a single account.

A cTrader ID is different from a trading account and it’s important to understand the difference. A cTrader ID is a username and an associated password, because the username is linked to an email address you may use either the email address or username to sign in with the password. An account number is a seven digit number used for logging into your account with a broker, a trading account can only be used with the specific broker it belongs to.

Multiple accounts can be linked to a single cTrader ID for easy access and fast switching between them. It is simpler to use a cTrader ID because you use your own email address or username and a single password. You may have several trading accounts made up of different random numbers and with different passwords, a single cTrader ID is far more convenient.
