Getting "Quicken's online service is unavailable at this time" for about 4 hours now. Just me?

I've been trying one-step update and getting "Quicken's online service is unavailable at this time" for about 4 hours now. Is it just me?

    I'm having the problem of being asked for Quicken ID and password on a file, and it won't take the login no matter what I have tried. Everything has been verfied, but when pening Quicken (Windows), I get a whole lot of "Oops! Something went wrong" - and the "let us know" link takes me nowhere closer to resolving this.

    Check if Windows Defender feature Ransomware protection is enabled.
    If so, configure it to add Quicken as an "allowed app" without turning off Ransomware protection. Perform the last step in:


    Are you getting "Oops, something went wrong"?
    Have you recently enabled a VPN? If so, this might be the problem. Try turning the VPN off and see if that helps.

    Is there a corporate or otherwise external firewall getting in the way? Contact the IT people maintaining the firewall and ask for permission. Quicken needs to be able to establish outbound internet connections for the program to work.

    This issue occurred within a week of the latest update and my annual subscription renewal. The error message remained from before the weekend through today, Tuesday.
    I followed these instructions, and I'm back in business.

    I have been getting this for weeks now, and have tried to sign off and back on. When I try to add an account, I cannot access online. When I go to the Edit->Preferences->Quicken ID & Cloud accounts, I get "We could not retrieve your profile information." I have rebooted multiple times, too. Help!

    Hello roger,

    Thank you for taking the time to visit the Community to report this issue, although I apologize that you have not received a response.

    I would next check for a firewall or anything that could possibly be blocking a connection. Such as a VPN or any 3rd party antivirus.

    Please let me know what you find!

    Anja's suggestion worked for me.
    My suggestion for Quicken is to craft better error messages since this message implies it is something Quicken will fix shortly when it is not.
