How To Update Vault Passwords

while fighting through download issues after changing a pswd to a bank acct i download transactions from......i tried to update my vault to reflect the new pswd.....and was unable to do this via usual previous updates. Can we no longer update our own pswd vaults? One of the prompts received while trying to troubleshoot/resolve my above issue downloading was 'do you want to update your vault'....(or something close to that). Any knowledge on this issue with OUR pswd vault? thx

    1. Click Change.


    Note: Changing your password here changes only the password stored in the Vault. It does not change your password at your bank.

    What is the connection type of the bank account?

    Direct Connect is the only connection type still using the Password Vault for storing passwords.

    For Express Web Connect the passwords are only stored on Intuit’s servers (Intuit is Quicken Inc’s aggregator). And the password is changed by going into the One Step Update setting and clicking on the gold key icon for the account.

    Express Web Connect + doesn’t use passwords.  Instead you authorize Intuit use rotating security tokens to access the account(s) on your financial institution’s website.

    thx for the info./steps on updating vault passwords........however, i'd tried that on not only the the acct. i was having 'issues' with but several others. when i clicked on ANY of my accts. the 'change password' button was basically inoperative. tried clicking on it several times with each acct...and nothing. This was NOT the case in the past when i was able to change the pswds the way you suggested. So, i guess i'm still stuck with the dilemma.
