cloud-free version of Quicken & Quicken Mobile (local sync option) (10 Legacy Votes)

I would like to see an option to synch Quicken/Windows or Mac with Quicken/Mobile for IOS or Android, directly by wifi, without storing any of my financial data in the cloud. I am certain that the Quicken people are being diligent about providing the best possible security for cloud-stored customer data, but in the last year we have seen many smart, diligent people fall victim to highly motivated and well financed attackers. I would just feel more comfortable with my financial data stored somewhere where I can be responsible for the security. Some of my favorite apps (MyLifeOrganized, SplashID) offer a cloud-based synch with a direct phone-to-computer wifi synch available as an alternative. There is generally some loss of functionality but nothing too too critical.

I see many comments from people who want it to all be on the cloud. That's fine, best of luck to you. Buit I'll bet you that a tool like Quicken attracts more than its share of users who would appreciate, use and even pay for a more secure alternative. I have friends who use WhatsApp for a secure conversation about where to get pizza and then put all of their financial data out on Quicken cloud without knowing anything at all about just how hackproof the Quicken Cloud might be.

    I add my voice. I'm not buying the product as long as it's syncing over the internet and a 3rd party cloud environment.
    I want direct and only direct connection between mobile devices via local Wifi and/or USB.

    Back when I was using iBank (it has since changed its name), this feature was available, and we loved it.  One of my big complaints with Quicken (and confirmed with their tech support) is that it is impossible to sync my mobile devices and desktop WITHOUT syncing to all of my online financial institutions.  Additionally, the sync goes out to the institutions before compiling all of my manually entered data.  I want a way to compile all of the information my wife and I have entered on multiple devices and review it prior to syncing to my financial institutions.  Additionally, I'd love to be able to keep my financial information out of the cloud.

    I would like the option for Quicken Mobile to NOT log into my financial institutions, download my transaction and auto match them. This only works correctly half of the time. I'd like to leave that function to my desktop software and just use Quicken Mobile as a mobile entry tool.

    Make the Quicken mobile a FULL FUNCTION APP like the PC version - remove the "Have to be on-line" to use it - NOT EVERYONE has constant cloud access.

    @jbm3238 that is a different IDEA than this thread. Meanwhile, you can add your VOTE to stand-alone mobile app for Android and/or to Full Quicken for IOS.

    First, click on each underlined link above to go there, then click the little grey triangle under the VOTE count at the top of page 1 in the blue banner, so your vote will count for THAT feature and increase its visibility to the developers by seeking to have the features you need or desire end up in the latest version (it may take a moment for your vote to register).
    (If the triangle is solid black, your vote has been registered.)

    Your VOTES matter!

    Most definitely still desired for privacy and security reasons to start.  Do not want my data in a centralized location online simply to sync to a mobile device. Also helps with syncing when internet is not accessible for whatever reason.

    Quicken used to have such a solution. Would be nice to see this back.

    Personally I don't trust Quicken's sync process enough to allow it be used with my real data file no matter if it is syncing from the Internet or locally.
    (I'm using the latest Quicken subscription version)
