How can I access Bloomberg Anywhere on a mobile device or iPad?
Please visit the mobile download site from your mobile device’s browser to download and install the latest Bloomberg Anywhere App. You will be able to download the App directly or get re-directed to the respective application store for your device.
What kind of functionality is available for my mobile device or iPad?
For a full list of functionality on mobile devices, please run MOBI function on the Bloomberg Professional terminal and select your device platform.
If I log into Bloomberg Anywhere on my mobile device, will it log me out from the terminal?
No, however once you log into Bloomberg Professional service on a mobile device, the Bloomberg Professional terminal will lock. You may return to your restored Bloomberg session by reconfirming your password on the lock screen.
Important: Logging into the Terminal Mode on Bloomberg Anywhere for iPad will log off your Bloomberg Professional terminal session.
What is a token code and how do I obtain it?
A token code is a six-digit number that will allow you to log into your Bloomberg Anywhere application on your mobile device.
For older B-Units (B-Unit or B-Unit 2): Press and hold the power button on your B-Unit until ‘Token Mode’ is displayed and release the power button immediately or the B-Unit will go into reset mode. Place your finger and type the six-digit code provided into your mobile device.
For B-Unit 3: Press the power button shortly to turn on the device and swipe your finger across the sensor when asked to “Swipe to verify”. After successful authentication, the token code will be displayed on the screen above the progress bar. Type the six-digit code provided into your mobile device.
Alternatively, you can visit MOBI on the Bloomberg Professional terminal, select Option 30 and click on “Generate a B-Unit token” at the bottom right hand side to generate a token to login on your mobile device. The token needs to be used once to login within 24 hours but is valid like a token from the B-Unit once it is successfully used to login.
Will I always need my B-Unit when logging into to Bloomberg on my mobile device or iPad?
The B-Unit is required for mobile devices when additional security is needed. The most common scenarios are if you update your mobile software, another Bloomberg Anywhere user logs into your mobile device, or you are logging into a same type of mobile device. However, in order to access “Terminal Mode” on your iPad, you will always need your B-Unit.
How can I get the TERMINAL VIEW of Bloomberg Anywhere on my iPad?
In order to get to the Terminal view of Bloomberg Anywhere on your iPad, you can select the double screen terminal icon from the Bloomberg menu at the lower right within the app. You will need your B-Unit to access Terminal Mode. Please see our functionality guide by running IPAD function on the Bloomberg Professional terminal for further instructions.
