Password for file open removed by last update

I had a password set on my quicken file. I would have to enter the password each time I launched Quicken in order to open my current data file. The password has been removed with the last update so anyone can open my file. I'm afraid to add the password back in case this is a bug and a future patch will correct the issue.


  • Hello @padcarroll,

    Thank you for reaching out to the Community to report this issue, though I apologize that you are experiencing this.

    If you do not wish to add the password back to your current file, then the alternate option we would recommend is to restore a recent pre-update backup to see if your backups still have your data file password saved. You can do so by navigating to "File > Restore a Backup File...". 

    Once restored, you should be prompted to enter your data file password.

    I hope this helps!
