Too annoying for IBKR to re-auth weekly...


Hi, does anyone use IBKR TWS for trading? I've been getting lots of "None" type returns from IBKR's API. 
Is IBKR's API still doing that thing where you have to install their client portal on your machine and you need to re-authenticate once a week? Or is there any config to remove such annoying things?

Unfortunately, they still have such requirement and there is no such config on their portal.

However, you can automate it with ALGOGENE API. (

They are connecting IBKR via CP Web API such that you don't need to re-auth every week.
