    BUT, QMobile and Q on the Web are merely adjuncts to the desktop product.
    There's a LOT of things that the desktop can do that those optional, adjuncts can't do.
    SO, have you been able to create the account in your desktop product?

    Hello @biscoe916 

    Thank you for taking the time to report this error to the community, although I apologize for any frustration or inconvenience experienced.

    Just to confirm that I am understanding the situation correctly, the above error was received when attempting to create a Quicken ID account on the www.quicken.com website, is that correct?

    If so, am I correct in understanding that you were successful in creating the new Quicken ID account from directly within the Quicken for Mac product?

    Please let me know, thank you.

    I apologize, but I have one more question for you.  Do you happen to use a VPN or a Proxy Server?

    Please let us know, thank you.

    Hi Sarah, yes I was able to successfully create an account using the mac app. The above error was received when attempting to create a new account on the website.

    The error I posted was the response from the server, which I got from opening the browsers (Chrome) developer tools.
