Keychain Issues Again

Trying to update my online accounts and am prompted every time for my Quicken ID and password. It also asks me for passwords on selected accounts. I’ve deleted the affected logins from my keychain and reset connections on the affected accounts but the issue persists.

This isn’t the first time this has happened and I don’t know why the connection between Quicken and the keychain keeps breaking. I shouldn’t have to reset my accounts every few months.

    This is a long shot, but do you store your Quicken file on a cloud service (eg Dropbox) or in a folder synced with iCloud Drive? If so, it could be permissions problems cropping up via that unsupported file storage location.

    No, everything is stored locally - no cloud, no network.

    Oh well. It was a long shot. I'm out of ideas.

    This happened earlier in the year and there was no explanation for why it suddenly wanted my Quicken login credentials and why only certain accounts asked for my password. It’s the same accounts as last time asking for my password.

    It's possible that it's that certain banks require periodic reauthorization. I know that with one of my credit cards, it occasionally makes me to the 2 factor questions, although not very often.

    I don’t think this is the issue. If it were just FI’s requiring re-authorization, I wouldn’t be asked to log in to my Quicken account every time I want to download and it wouldn’t be the same random bunch of FI’s. Also, if that were the case reconnecting the affected accounts would fix the issue. I tried this procedure: https://www.quicken.com/support/error-when-updating-accounts-103-or-101 which worked last time but I’m still running into the same issue.
