Do I need to keep my browser open while live trading with Robinhood?

I've been learning with Quantopian for a fews weeks and want to do some real life experiments. Anyone knows if I need to keep my browser open and internet connected while live trading with Robinhood?

Thanks.

Nope, no need to keep your browser open. Just click on the button "Live Trade this Algorithm" in the backtest window of your algorithm. Choose "Broker" and select your Robinhood account. Your algorithm will then be started in the cloud, place trades in your Robinhood account, and continue to run without any further intervention required (unless for some reason your algorithm crashes).

Good luck.

Thank you Dan! That's really in detail and I appreciate it.
