Security of Quicken Data file update.

I find that the new release has significantly reduced computer security. Once on the computer anyone can access the bank files through Quicken. The bank - quicken has a very secure unbreakable security but the Quicken program no longer asks for the VAULT password. Big mistake!

    It doesn't need to for Express Web Connect connected accounts, since you provided that password to the Quicken aggregation server to collect that information overnight for later download to your computer when you set it up for download.
    See this thread about this new change: EWC->QCS No Pwd
    See this thread for how EWC downloads work: Connection Methods
    In reality, Q didn't need to ask in the past, they just eliminated the asking with the latest change.
