    Looks like the moderators deleted my question about Quicken Connect. Here goes again: in Direct Connect my financial transactions are between me and USAA. In Quicken Connect, Quicken Inc is ‘helping’ by downloading them for me.

    What access does Quicken Inc have to my transaction data?

    What are the privacy guarantees here?

    To be clear, I will grant Quicken Inc zero access to any of my transaction data.

    Hello @Andrew B,

    Thank you for reaching out to the Community. The article provides the answer to your question. To summarize, some access is required for Online Banking functions (also known as One Step Update) to work. That information is used exclusively for Online Banking functionality. The article provides information about the safeguards in place as well as providing links for additional information.

    Thank you.
