The Quicken ID is an ID you'll use to access all Quicken applications.  The Quicken ID registers your Quicken product, gives you access to your Quicken data files, Quicken Mobile, Quicken.com, and all online services like downloading transactions, updating quotes, and paying bills.

Even if you don't use online banking in Quicken, you will need to connect at least once to create the Quicken ID, as the Quicken ID is also used to register your software.  After you’ve created your Quicken ID and signed in, you can use Quicken offline if needed.

If you're having any issues with the Quicken ID, the articles below should help resolve your issue.  Just click on the issue you're experiencing.

Before you begin: Please note the Quicken ID is your email address. If you have multiple email addresses, make sure you're signing in with the one used for your Quicken ID.

  • When the code is received, it needs to be used immediately or it will expire. 
  • You can click Email me the code instead to have the code sent via email instead of text. (Shown in the picture above under the Submit button)
  • You can also click Call me with a code instead (select this if the number listed is a land line and cannot receive text messages).
