update passwords

Does the automatic update use the password I use to log on to my banks website?  I used to put in a 4 character pin which the bank asked me to change.  However my password for the quicken update is the same password I use to log on to the website.  So do I have to change the quicken password when I change my log on to the bank password.  Please help


What user name and password Quicken should use is up to the financial institution.  Usually it does match what you use on the web site, but it doesn't have to.

If think it would become very apparent if you do it wrong, as in when you try to download in Quicken you will get an error logging in to your financial institution (It will say the user name or password is wrong).

You can change your password in Quicken at:
Tools -> Password Vault

People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
