Any ideas as to how to recover a long-forgotten quicken 98 password?

Desperation rather than expectation!

    Hello @purrplex,

    Thank you for reaching out to the Community to tell us about your issue, though we apologize for any trouble experienced so far.

    We will need some additional information to gain clarity and be able to better assist you further.

    Could you please specify the type of password? Are you referring to a data file password? Also, are you trying to upgrade to the latest Quicken version using a Quicken 98 data file?

    Check back and let us know! Thank you.

    Thank you for confirming those questions.

    If you do not remember the data file password and wish to have the password removed, you will need to contact Quicken Support directly for further assistance. Our support agents will need to proceed by collecting your data file to have our escalation team go in and remove the password from the data file (also known as Quicken Assisted Password Removal Service) and have it sent back to you once the data file password has been removed.

    To learn more about Quicken Assisted Password Removal Service, please refer to this support article regarding this topic.

    I hope this helps!
