Password set "not authorized"

evaanna Member
Using Quicken subscription on Windows 10, after making a year-end copy of my data file, I want to set a password, but get message "You are not authorized to take this action. Please check your credentials or try a different action." This happens whether I am logged in as User or Administrator; All my earlier year files have passwords. What to do???

    Resolved by Quicken support. He had me log out and back into my Quicken Cloud account. To log out, go to Edit - Preferences - Quicken ID and Cloud Accounts. Log out, then log back in.
