Release Notes

Release R18.4 (US Versions, Sept 2018)

Before you take this update, we recommend you perform a One Step Update to ensure that your data is synced to the cloud and also make a backup of your data file.

Authentication

  • Fixed: A couple of issues related to Quicken ID migration.

Critical Update: Sign In and Authentication Change

  • We have replaced Intuit's login service with a new Quicken login service.
    • When you install this update you will be prompted to setup a new Quicken ID.
    • Your new Quicken ID will be used to sign in to Quicken going forward.
    • You may still use your Intuit ID for other Intuit products.
  • This is a required update. Failure to install this update and setup your Quicken ID will result in a loss of connected services.

Vault Password Change

  • Due to our switch to a Quicken login service, we have removed the ability to protect your Password Vault with an Intuit Password. You may be required to set a new Password Vault password after installing this update. (If you already used a custom Vault password no action will be required.)
