Schwab Download/Update returns Error 403 on all acounts

I'm using Mac Version 6.0.3 (Build 600.37136.100) on macOS 10.14.6

As of today I'm not able to download Schwab account transactions. Doing so results in 
Download Error (403)
HTTP-403 Error from Charles Schwab & Co., Inc.
Last attempt 1/7/2021 - 5:39 PM
0 new transactions downloaded

I get this for 3 accounts that I previously had no problem with, at least as of 1/7/2021 at 5:39 PM. ;-)

Please update us on when this issue will be resolved or how we can fix it if its and issue for us to resolve.

    All of sudden I can't connect to Schwab this AM. Anyone else having this issue?
  • india justindia just Mac Beta Beta
    no issue for me.  perhaps related to peak volume throttling of traffic that banks have been doing?  noticed many complaints across multiple providers here in Q logs. Also, schwab has had a peak volume for phone/messaging status alert after login for the past almost 2 weeks now.
    Long time user, mac only, brand new to beta testing.  NOOB.

    Same for me. Schwab accounts not connecting (403 error). All other accounts connect and download.
  • UKRUKR SuperUser ✭✭✭✭✭
    Have you checked to make sure that your accounts are connected using the Direct Connect method?
    I may be wrong, but based on what I've been reading here, other methods may no longer be supported by Schwab.
  • howiephowiep Member ✭✭
    All 3 of my Schwab accounts are Direct Connect. Still no service.
  • GIWaltGIWalt Member ✭✭
    I can't check at the moment (not at my computer). Will check in a couple of hours and update.
  • GIWaltGIWalt Member ✭✭
    I have 3 different Schwab accounts and all 3 are giving me the 403 error. Tried reconnecting and no impact. All are direct connect.
  • UKRUKR SuperUser ✭✭✭✭✭
    Has anyone called Schwab Support yet?
  • GIWaltGIWalt Member ✭✭
    I sent Schwab an e-mail. The wait time on the phone was too long.
  • himalayahimalaya Member ✭✭
    Same here. Doesn't work on two different sets of accounts with two different quicken files, so clearly not a single user signon issue. It's something more general. Just started today, was working at least through Jan 9.

    Still showing no connection on the Account Status page, however, all 3 Schwab accounts have been updated correctly!! A total of 7 investment items were updated that are included in the 3 accounts.
  • GIWaltGIWalt Member ✭✭
    I have sent the file to ATTN:Francisco as requested.
  • GIWaltGIWalt Member ✭✭
    I did speak with someone at Schwab tech support and they too are aware of this issue.

    Same issue here, with one exception. I have a Schwab checking account that downloaded this morning, so why the other Schwab accounts did not is even quirkier.
  • tomstadertomstader Member, Mac Beta Beta
    I just send log files. Still not working.
