    Same problem, Quicken for Mac says:

    Error Code: 16503

    I have the same problem on Quicken for Mac, with 2FA enabled for E*Trade. Maybe this is related to the recent changes to E*Trade by the Morgan Stanley acquisition?

    I am selecting E*Trade Bank ( and do not have 2-factor enabled. I get an error:

    Care Code: FDP-107

    Timeout. User Needs to Select FI E*Trade for accessing Investment Accounts


    What's the issue and how do I fix it?

    I just (November 13 2023 6:45pm PST) did a download and E*Trade worked fine for the first time in a number of days. Maybe it's intermittent and I got lucky this time, or someone fixed something. (Quicken Classic Deluxe 7.3.2 (Build 703.50456.100), macOS 12.7.1)

    I just tried again after seeing @blmatthews comment. The download worked for me as well. Hopefully issue has been fixed. Thank You @blmatthews.

    If you're trying to access Investment accounts at E*Trade, the usual financial institution name is (or has always been in Quicken for Windows) "Quicken E*Trade".

    Due to a recent change, be sure to select "Web Connect" (may also be called Express Web Connect) as the connection method. The original "Direct Connect" connection method appears to no longer be supported.
