I can't connect to Wells Fargo accounts after updating user ID

Wells Fargo forced me to update both my user id and my password. In quicken i was able to update my password in the vault but I didn't see anyway to update my user id. When I tried one step update it said user id or password incorrect but didn't give any way to update it there. I tried going in to the account edit and update the userid manually in my accounts but I still get an error when I try to download and no options except it it hasn't been previously registered but it has and works fine when I try to login to Wells Fargo online

    ok, thank you. I really hate when Wells Fargo does this. I have 18 accounts to deactiavate/reactivate now. Don't suppose you know a quicker way to do all of them at once? At least the deactivate part.
  • Hello @karen m, 

    Thank you for your response. There is not a way to disconnect multiple accounts at once in Quicken for Windows, unfortunately. I know it is a tedious process but please let us know if you come across any errors.
