Updated: 2/03/2016 | Article ID: GEN85862

Learn about Quicken's Intuit ID.

The Intuit ID is a universal access ID for Quicken online services and product registration. You can choose to use this same Intuit ID with other Intuit products, such as TurboTax and QuickBooks, reducing the number of passwords you need to manage. With an Intuit ID in Quicken, you can choose to

  • Download transactions from your bank into Quicken
  • Use Quicken on your phone or tablet
  • Snap and store receipts on your phone and sync to Quicken desktop
  • Pay your bills online direct from Quicken*
  • Receive email and text alerts
  • Get notified in product when a free update is available
  • Use Quicken on your phone or tablet
  • Receive email and text alerts
  • Access Quicken Support & Quicken Community

*Available through the Quicken Bill Pay service or if your bank uses Direct Connect and supports bill pay.

Am I required to setup an Intuit ID?

Quicken 2014 (R9) and newer require the use of Intuit ID. If you do not already have an Intuit ID, created when you purchased any Intuit product directly from our websites or when using other Intuit-provided services, then you will be required to create one.

If you would like to take advantage of Quicken's online services, such as downloading transactions, free updates, or mobile sync, registering Quicken with an Intuit ID is required.

I already have a Quicken.com, TurboTax, Quicken Mobile ID, or investing.quicken.com ID. Can I use that?

Absolutely! If you use other Intuit products, or you purchased a product from the Quicken.com online store, your existing login information will work as your Intuit ID.

How do I know if I already have an Intuit ID?

During the registration process, we'll look for existing IDs. If one exists, we'll let you know.

Do I need to pay to setup an Intuit ID?

No. Intuit does not charge its customers for using Quicken to download online transactions or to pay bills online through your financial institution. However, some financial institutions may charge for some of these actions. If you have any questions about these fees, please contact your financial institution.

Is the Intuit ID and/or my data stored to the cloud?

Your Intuit ID and password are not stored in the cloud. It is always your choice whether or not to use the cloud (using the Quicken Mobile App, for example).

Where is my Intuit ID saved?

Your Intuit ID can be saved as part of your data file in your Password Vault.  Although it will reduce the number of steps required to download transaction, saving the Intuit ID in your password vault is not required.

Do I have to setup an Intuit ID to update my Quicken software?

An Intuit ID is required to obtain free updates to your Quicken software.

Do I have to create a separate Intuit ID for each data file I use?

If you plan on using Quicken's online services, you'll need to create a new Intuit ID for each unique Quicken data file.

What if I forget my Intuit ID username or password?

If you forget your Intuit ID username or password, no problem -- we'll help you out.

  1. Under Edit > Preferences, select Intuit ID, Mobile & Alerts on the left.
  2. On the right pane, your Intuit ID will be listed at the top. If you need your password reset, select Change Intuit Password.

If you no longer have access to the email address you used to register your Intuit ID, the easiest thing to do is create a new Intuit ID with your current email address. If you prefer to reset your existing ID, go here.

Make sure that your computer is set to English as your default language to prevent any unwanted error.
