Active Trader Pro Drop Support for Windows 7 / 8

Fidelity’s Active Trader Pro will soon drop support for Windows 7 and Windows 8 users.

If you’re an avid user of the trading platform, you should’ve received an alert indicating that ATP will no longer be accessible on computers running Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1.

Why the Change?

It’s essential to understand the rationale behind this update from Fidelity. Microsoft has ceased providing critical security updates for older Windows versions.

Therefore, upgrading to a supported version of Windows is highly recommended to ensure your online trading remains secure.

The Transition Timeline

While Fidelity has yet to provide an exact update on when Active Trader Pro will stop working on Windows 7 and 8, the transition is expected to take place sometime in October. This gives customers time to make the necessary adjustments.
