This error usually occurs when your financial institution requires you to change your password. Some financial institutions require their users to change their passwords after a certain number of days or require a password change when inappropriate activity is suspected.

  2. Close/Reopen Quicken.

Note: If your financial institution charges a fee for online services in Quicken, you need to cancel the services by contacting your financial institution. Deactivating the account in Quicken will not normally stop the service fee.
