How to download Wells Fargo account transactions when two-factor identification is turned on?
I'm using Quicken for Mac 6.1.1. I activated two factor identification for my Wells Fargo accounts a year ago. Unfortunately, this made it very difficult to download transactions into Quicken-- and now I can't get this to work at all. In the past, I would do an account update. This would give me an error message, which had a "Resolve" button. Clicking on this would intermittently get me to a log on where I could enter a two factor identification code. Now when I click on this I get a window that says "getting Wells Fargo Bank requirements.." But all it does it lock up window and I can't do anything in Quicken until I close the window. I've tried deactivating and reactivating the account. This takes me through a two-factor identification and relinks the account-- but I still can't download any transactions and have the exact same experience trying to download. I've tried searching anything on Quicken. The only thing I can find is this discussion from March 2020, now closed: https://community.quicken.com/discussion/7872505/two-factor-authentication . The instructions here suggest changing the account from Wells Fargo Bank to wellsfargononqfx.scr to allow downloads without requiring two factor identification. When I tried this, this option does not appear on the list of Wells Fargo account types. Im stumped. What can I do to fix this problem?
