Chase cannot unlock accounts until 06/02/21 - Direct Connect setup fails

Since Tuesday, 05/25/2021, I have had to call Chase each day to unlock my accounts because Quicken evidently attempts to sign in with wrong credentials. Each time Chase unlocked them , I could login to chase.com, but Quicken would not work and locked the accounts again. On 05/28/2021, I deactivated and reactivated my accounts in Quicken and they downloaded then. When I signed in to Quicken 05/29/2021, it once again locked the accounts. When I called Chase to unlock them, the customer representative said "There is a problem in the system and we cannot unlock them until 06/02/2021". I specifically asked if it was just my accounts or everyone and she replied "It is multiple accounts, if they are still locked on 06/02/2021, you will have to call back". Just thought I would give everyone a head's up.

    Hello @batstang2000

    Thank you for reaching out to the Community regarding your issue, although I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing issues with your account getting locked out. I'm wondering what exactly still caused the issue her as it's something we could ideally prevent. Did support go through any additional information on how to prevent the issue while you were in contact with them?  Another user from BoA recently had a similar problem and was able to fix the issue by deactivating and reactivating the account by adding them as new account then relinking. I can leave steps below you may be able to use in the future.

    First we'll try deactivating all of the accounts for the affected FI. You can do so by following the article listed down below.

    https://www.quicken.com/support/deactivate-online-banking-services-quicken-account

    Once all the accounts are deactivated go ahead and follow the article here on reconnecting the accounts.

    Let us know if you're able to get everything working properly once you get the chance!

    Thanks,

    Quicken Francisco

    That is exactly what I did on 05/28/2021 and transactions were downloaded. When I attempted the update today (05/29/2021), it locked the accounts again. My problem now is that I cannot reconnect the accounts because they are locked and Chase says they cannot unlock them until 06/02/2021. When I was able to download the transactions on 05/28/2021 it created another huge problem. All of my payments to 3 different Chase accounts since March 1st which were in Quicken as Transfers from various checking accounts held at other institutions were deleted and automatically changed in Quicken to "Web Payment Made" in the register. That meant I spent two hours researching, finding and correcting all of those transfers.

    What is the connection method used (You can see it at the top of the account register)
    I'm you are guessing using Express Web Connect.

    If that is true my suggestion would be to switch to Direct Connect which will have far fewer problems.
    Note you might have to go into the Advanced Options when reactivating accounts.
    You might also be able to select a link "Improve Connection" on the Online Services tab in the account details.

    I will definitely use Direct Connect whenever Chase unlocks my accounts.

    Called again today and the CS I talked to was able to unlock the accounts. Deactivated accounts in Quicken. Relinked accounts and downloads were successful. Direct Connect set up was not successful, but I will just leave it as is as for now as long as it works. Evidently, the first Chase CS I talked to simply did not want to deal with it?

    After my failed attempt to "Direct Connect", Chase sent a secured message via the Chase online website. After confirming my identity and following the steps they provided, Direct Connect is now operational.

    I'm glad you got it all setup, hopefully this will be a lot more trouble free for you now that you are using Direct Connect.

    It use to be that you could go into their website and tell them to turn on Direct Connect, to avoid the fail, but when I went looking for the current menu items to do that and give them to you I found that they were no longer there.  It was:

    - go to the person icon in the top right corner

    - choose "Profile and settings"

    - from the left side menu, choose "AccountSafeSM" and "Desktop apps"

    - choose "Continue" and "Set it up" to connect the software

    So I figured that Chase has changed the procedures, and it looks like that is the case.  I thought it would be "seamless" now.  I remember years ago the procedure was you would setup Direct Connect and it would pass, but Chase would send you a message like you got that you had a few days to confirm it.  It seems that now it is "fail" and then confirm unless someone else can find a different way.

    OK after some more digging, I did find it, they moved the setting once again (this is a one time thing you don't need to do this again, this is just for any other user that hits this, or the others answering questions about this).
    New path, select the menu:


    Security & privacy -> (scroll down, and under Resources) Desktop Software/Learn More
    And if you haven't set it up, then it should be choose "Continue" and "Set it up" to connect the software.
