I received two unsolicited verification code text this evening. I did not ask for these codes.

Should I be worried? Support is closed.

    In that case I would do like @UKR suggested an contact your financial institution about it.  I agree with the Quicken Support people it probably isn't any kind of hack.

    Do the text messages indicate which bank these verification codes came from?
    If yes, contact the bank.

    EDITED (changed Express Web Connect to Quicken Connect since this is a Mac question)

    I don't use any financial institution with Quicken Connect that requires multiple authentication through a text message, but there certainly are some that do.  So I wonder if you were doing an update in Quicken at the time?

    I was in bed. Not using quicken... very weird. However, my bank did do an upgrade, so I’m thinking it may have been them updating the system over the weekend when it’s closed and slowest... maybe. Make sense? Quicken support told me today that those don’t come from them... which I thought was strange. He didn’t feel it was a hack. No need to change passwords. THANKS for reaching out!
