If you're getting invalid password errors when you update your accounts, the Password Vault may contain incorrect information. The best way to correct this is to recreate the Password Vault. In order to recreate the Password Vault, you need to print a record of the stored passwords, delete the Password Vault and then create it again.

Note: If you're seeing a password error when prompted for your Intuit ID (as pictured below), this is unrelated to your Password Vault. You can find help for this issue by clicking here.
