Adding Acorns Account in Mac or Windows

Has anyone successfully added their Acorns investment account to Quicken for Mac? I would like to add my account but I don't know WHAT kind of an account it is, nor can I find Acorns or Acorns Securities in the search menu?

    A quick look as a Mac user doesn't show "Acorn" listed for either checking accounts or brokerage accounts. And I did a little Googling and found a few others asking the same question but no success. Bottom line: it's up to the financial institution to support Quicken, and it appears Acorns does not. All Acorns customers can do is lobby Acorns to provide a way to download to Quicken. (That may sound impossible, but I've seen cases from small banks to large institutions like Apple's new credit card where lobbying/pestering/complaining from customers have brought about change.)

    You might want to create a manual account in Quicken to track your Acorns holdings, just updating it monthly or periodically to reflect money you've put in and the change in the value of your investments.

    I just looked on the Windows side of supported financial institutions -
    and I don't see anything listed for "Acorns" -
    so... would guess that the MAC side also has nothing supported ?
