Why am I prompted to create a new Quicken ID and password?
As part of Quicken's separation from Intuit, we're changing from Intuit's authentication platform (Intuit ID) to a secure Quicken platform (Quicken ID), so you'll no longer need to use your Intuit ID with Quicken.
This transition to the Quicken ID has been completed in all currently supported products (Quicken 2015, 2016, and 2017). All you need to do is update your version of Quicken when prompted in the product.
- If you haven't seen the screens below yet, please view this article and select the corresponding link for your version of Quicken to download the update manually.
- If you receive an error that your Quicken ID already exists, click here to resolve the issue.
After your product is updated, when opening Quicken, you'll be prompted with a screen to create your Quicken ID:
This is the new ID you'll use to access all Quicken applications, including Quicken for Windows, Quicken for Mac, Quicken Mobile, and Quicken.com. Even if you don't use online banking in Quicken, you will need to connect once to create the Quicken ID. After that, you will only need to enter the Quicken ID and password once.
Don't worry, creating this new Quicken ID doesn't impact or change the data in your Quicken file, and, as always, your data is secure. If you have any bank account logins or passwords, or a password vault stored in Quicken, those will remain stored locally on your computer.
You can continue to use your old Intuit ID as a completely separate login for Intuit products, such as TurboTax or Quickbooks, but from now on you'll only need your new Quicken ID for Quicken applications.
To create your new Quicken ID:
All you need to do is fill out your email, phone number, and a new password to complete the process. Make sure that your contact information is accurate, as we'll use this if you ever need to update or verify your account information, or change your password. Adding both your email address and phone number adds an extra layer of security to your Quicken ID.
After you fill in the form and click "Continue" the process will be complete, and you'll no longer need your Intuit ID to access Quicken.
