Provide additional authentication requested by my financial institution

36 people found this helpful


Your participating financial institution may request additional identity verification when you go online to update your transactions and balances in Quicken. Fill in the requested information (the type of information you need to provide will differ depending on your financial institution).

Why am I being asked for this information?

As a defense against phishing attacks and other online scams, the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) has released guidelines that required financial institutions to strengthen their customer authentication measures for Internet banking transactions. As a result, many financial institutions are requiring identity verification beyond a customer ID and password when customers request online account access. This additional information is sometimes called multi-factor authentication, of MFA.

When you update your transactions and balances in Quicken, your participating financial institution may request similar identity verification.

For security purposes, financial institutions change the type of authentication they request from time to time (for example, a bank might request you to enter your postal code instead of the year in which you were born). When these changes occur, Quicken will prompt you to enter the new information.
