What versions of Quicken are supported?

What if I'm not using a supported version?

Quicken will not be able to return your file in an unsupported version of the Quicken program.  Your options are to upgrade to a currently supported version, locate and restore a backup that accepts your password, or start a new data file in the version of Quicken you are using.

What password cannot be removed?

The password removal service cannot be used for your online banking password or Intuit ID password. Prior to submitting your file for password removal, review What if Quicken is not accepting the Data File Password?
