1. Security reason. Never heard before about malware for NT or MC but had a ton stories with stealing password from browser etc.
2. Privacy. My orders history can reached by broker whom I know very well, who is has the license and who is tracked by special agencies like SEC. Who can provide me guarantees my orders do not leak out like it usually done in Google or FB?
Re 1/ That seems quite alarmist The whole banking industry is built on people doing on-line banking via a browser. I am assuming Tradingview/AMP use https:// for access. Not saying fraud does not happen, but based on what you say I guess that means you do not do internet banking.
2/ Oh come on - your broker already has all your order history. What's the difference?
1. Malware steals password from browser cache. http or https doesn't matter. I'm not worry about my email or profile on site like BMT. It can be restored in a few mins. But I'm really worry about site who is linked to real account with real money. Especially online order sending ability.
2. My broker has a license and tracked by agencies. Sure he can sell the stat his clients for another company. But it will be really foolish for his business. For company like Google or FB it is a normal case. They business not related with trading and how a traders feel good. Just a conflict of interest.

I was initially skeptical of the social/community/ideas features of this software, but having watched the video I can see the potential power in it, especially if enough traders were to use the s/w. Great for sharing trade ideas and then easily seeing how those trade ideas panned out.
Right now the version of TV that AMP have got is not really up for 'proper' trading - too many features have been cut from it.
Obviously TV have had a lot of negative feedback about this as they talk in the video about re-evaluating what goes in the AMP version. They alluded to a new version in about 2 weeks, which means I guess anytime now.
We now fully support TradingView as a trading platform and have added that to our arsenal of platforms.
