    Looking that this article I read it as if the person doesn't remember the transaction password, they are out of luck (other than a backup before it was set).  There is a way to recover from forgetting the data file and account passwords, but the transaction password is never mentioned.

    Quicken support might be know more/be able to remove it.

    If this is about a totally lost and forgotten transaction password (or one set due to data file damage), it appears to me that it's possible to have Quicken remove the transaction password:
    Following the links in the above document and digging down deep you eventually get to https://www.quicken.com/support/what-if-quicken-not-accepting-data-file-password where it says:
    • If you cannot complete the steps above, try using the assisted password removal service
    • Quicken offers password removal services for your Quicken data file and transaction passwords. This service is for currently supported versions of Quicken. You can find the steps to submit the request here. Using the password removal service will also be necessary if you receive an error such as "There is not enough data in your data file to validate your identity" or if the verification questions can't be answered.
    Now, will it work?
    That's another question ...

    @UKR I guess I didn't dig far enough down.
