Signing into "Quicken on the Web" - Two Factor Authentication [Edited]

I thought I'd try "Quicken on the Web". My mac desktop is fine but I wanted to try the web version. It lets me log in w/o two factor authentication. What am I doing wrong? Surely a financial site won't let you log in w/o this.

    Quicken Web doesn't have that feature.

    Hello @kurtlook

    Thank you for reaching out to Quicken Community. I apologize for the confusion. Quicken is a financial managing software and when you log into the web version there is no need for two-factor authentication. You can simply log into Quicken.com with your Quicken ID and password. 

    Hope this provides your with clarity. Please let us know if you have any question or concerns.

    I think their question is - There IS a need, and WHY is it not implemented with Quicken on the Web ?

    I would also question the "no need" statement.  While I don't use MFA, there are MANY who do.

    The commenters understood my question completely. In 2021, it is malpractice not to support two factor authentication on a financial web site.

    BTW for the record I believe that the risk is even greater than it appears at first glance.

    Quicken went to "Single account sign on".

    As in you use the same Quicken Id/password to sign on to all of these:
    1. Quicken data file.  (and its connection to the Quicken cloud data set, which is on the Quicken servers).
    2. Quicken account (website).
    3. The online portfolio.
    4. Quicken Web.
    5. Quicken Mobile.
    6. This Quicken forum.  (personally I use a different Quicken Id here to avoid mixing my finances with a public forum).

    Hello All,

    For clarification in regards to @Quicken Paloma 's "no need" statement; what she is referring to is that 2-factor authentication is not currently a requirement in order to sign in on Quicken on the Web. However, it was not her intent to indicate that it will never be needed. Therefore, we apologize for any confusion the phrasing of her statement may have caused.

    I did also double-check to see if there is a current Idea post available for this topic and found that there currently is not. That said, I also went ahead and changed this post to an Idea post so other users who have the same or a similar request can vote on this idea by clicking the up arrow (see below).


    Ideas are also reviewed by our Development and Product teams in order to improve Quicken and implement new features requested by customers.

    Please, be sure to add your own vote as well.
