Quicken for Mac documents are associated with an Intuit ID. When importing a Quicken for Mac document into the latest version of Quicken, you must enter the password for the associated Intuit ID. This is necessary to maintain connectivity for any accounts that use Quicken Connect to download information from your financial institutions.

If you don’t know the password, you can see if it’s stored on your keychain in your computer:

To resolve this issue

  • Go to Applications > Utilities > Keychain Open the Keychain
  • Select Passwords on the left sidebar.
  • Double-click the item named Intuit ID (you may need to sort the list by Name and scroll to find this item.)
  • If there are multiple items named Intuit ID, double-click on each one and look for the Intuit ID in the Account field.
  • Click the Show password checkbox and enter your keychain password when prompted (typically it’s the same as your OS X login password.)
  • The password will be shown in the field next to the checkbox. Enter this password in Quicken for Mac when asked for the Intuit ID password when importing the Quicken document (you can even copy-and-paste it.)

If there isn’t a password stored on your keychain, or the password is rejected as incorrect, you can reset your password on the Intuit website here.
