Hello All!

Starting tonight (1/21), the Quicken Community will be moving to a Single Sign On system!  This will make it easier and more secure for you to sign in to the community.  Because of the additional security of the system, we'll also be able to enable more advanced features for newer users, like adding links and images!

What does Single Sign On mean?

This means you can connect your Quicken ID to your community account for a more seamless sign-on experience.

How does it work?

Your experience with Single Sign On will vary slightly, based on whether you have a Quicken ID or Community account.  Follow the instructions below based on your situation:

If you're brand new to Community:

If you’re new to the community, first you’ll choose to Sign In/Create an account:


When you do this, you’ll be prompted to sign in with your Quicken ID and password (if you don’t have a Quicken ID, you’ll create one).  If your email is not yet verified, you’ll receive a notification, and an email with a link to verify your email:



After verifying your email, return to the community and sign in with your Quicken ID and password; after you sign in, you’ll select your community username (public-facing) and complete your profile. 

 

If you're an Existing Community User:

If you have an existing community account, you'll connect your Community account to your Quicken ID.

Option 1: If your Quicken ID email address is different than your community email address:

When you sign in to the community, you’ll be prompted to sign in with your Quicken ID and password.  If your email is not yet verified, you’ll receive a notification, and an email with a link to verify your email:



After verifying your email, return to the community and sign in; you’ll see a box to choose a username—enter your existing community username.  Then, select the radio button next to your username and connect you’ll then enter your community password, and your accounts are now connected:

 

NOTE: your community account email address will not change--you have simply connected the two accounts.

Option 2: If your Quicken ID email address is the same as your community email address:

When you sign in to the community, you’ll be prompted to sign in with your Quicken ID and password.  If your email is not yet verified, you’ll receive a notification, and an email with a link to verify your email:



After verifying your email, return to the community and sign in, and your accounts are now connected.
