    Since October I've been getting locked out of my bank account because the login password is incorrect. If, after 3 times an incorrect password is provided, then they lock the account. This occurs 3-4 times/month every month since then. These attempted incorrect logins have not been initiated by me !!I I have spoken with the bank 5 to 6 times - they state that their records indicate that the login request is originated from my Quicken program. Quicken support states (4 to 5 times or more) that there is no program in Quicken that "automatically" will perform a login without it being initiated by me. I even allowed the "sharing" of my computer with Quicken support and had them direct me into changing or deleting of various info within my Quicken programs.

    Sorry, this is a shot in the dark. But is Quicken "sure" the login attempts came from "your Quicken".

    I have an incident with my daughter-in-laws account, fictitious name Mary - where someone else, I am sure accidently (mistyped or careless), tried to log in with a Mary ID, password failed because she was using the wrong account ID, and the account got locked.

    This went on for several month - until my daughter-in-law changed her account name to Maryz - and she has never had a problem since.

    Just a thought.
