Is it possible to log on and update accounts with a single password entry?

In the past this was possible with intuit.

    Thanks.  I have run into the secondary authorizations also.
    I was referring brief period just prior to Intuit selling quicken when a single login also allowed for immediate ability to download data from institutions.  I enjoyed that short-lived convenience. :)

    Thanks.
    I am I the only one who remembers the feature that when you logged on with your onestep password into the quicken file that you didn't have to enter the master password again update accounts?

    It is certainly not how I remember it.

    In all the years I have used Quicken with online updates, which is since 1996, the master password has been required.

    I did use Quicken for a few years starting in 1992, but dropped it because at the time I had to enter everything manually, so this wouldn't have applied then.

    Mind you there was a time (a few years) for the people that have a password on their data file to only enter that password, and not that password and the Password Vault password.

    And mind you it was an ill-fated option, that ran into problems, and they dropped the idea.  But even there, the user always had to put in one password.

    Several users asked to allow for no password at all, but Quicken Inc/Intuit have never caved to that bad practice.

    On a side note.  I haven't entered my Password Vault password in many years.  I use RoboForm, and it will fill it in for me and press the Update button automatically with a single click.  And I can open RoboForm with Windows Hello (face).  :smile:

    As I recall, there was a single-sign in option when the Intuit ID was introduced.  I never used it.

    I use KeePass and enter most passwords using a keyboard shortcut.

    Thanks.  Entering passwords for each account would take forever.  The password vault is much better alternative.
