Connectivity troubleshooting in Quicken




Quicken connectivity errors with internet mainly occur when your system has a security program and the settings of your firewall are not configured in a proper way. In order to access online services, Quicken uses internet connectivity.

Here, we are going to discuss how to handle Quicken connectivity problems or connectivity troubleshooting. You can also call our Quicken support team to get instant help and save your time and effort. So without delaying more, let’s begin;

Here the system setting or certain conditions will prevent Quicken from successfully connecting to these online services.

Following are the two main problems that can prevent Quicken from accessing the Internet:

You’ll encounter that your web browser cannot establish a secure connection. 

  • As you know that your computer has security and privacy programs, such as firewalls and pop-up blockers that are not configured correctly.
  •  It gives a slow and unstable internet connection.

Check your connection speed

  • For this, you need to conduct an internet connection speed test through Google.

  • And the download speed of Quicken should be at least 25Mbps to run it properly.

Configuring security and privacy programs

Just make sure you are able to establish a secure connection

Initially, you need to verify that you can connect to secure websites. And you can perform this easily by visiting the financial institution’s website and logging in. In case you are unable to access the website then there may be a temporary issue with the website or some system settings are blocking access to secure sites.

Firewalls

The best thing about the firewall is that it enables the users to control which of the programs on your computer can access the internet and what content you can view online. Firewalls are one of the essential security tools. But in case if they are not configured correctly then they can prevent Quicken from accessing the Internet.

Pop-up blocker

You will find that pop-up blockers can interfere with online account services in Quicken. Though several error messages are possible “User Canceled Session” or “Action Canceled” are the two most common ones. In case you find a pop-up blocker that is installed on your system then try turning it off,  and after that try downloading transactions again. And if you can download transactions then Quicken recommends that you configure your pop-up blocker to allow pop-up windows on our financial institution’s website. You can refer to the manufacturer’s instructions for the pop-up blocker software.

Point to remember: In case you are unable to use connected services and receive a message stating it is due to folder access, just follow the steps and make sure the Controlled folder access is set to off.

Adware and spyware can interfere with online account services

Information about adware and spyware protection.

Adware programs give you the facility to track your internet usage and provide pop-up ads based on the things you look at on the Internet. Adware is only installed on your system and that too with your consent.

Spyware programs keep track on your Internet usage, but this is without your consent. There might be chances that Spyware would attempt to capture your personal information and send it to a third party without your proper consent or knowledge. And, if you want to remove Adware and Spyware programs from your system then there are many third-party programs that are available to help you to identify and remove them.

Internet browser privacy and security settings

Moreover, many financial institutions use cookies during online banking sessions.

Well, there might be many reasons you have trouble with online account services, it can be changing your privacy settings to handle cookies differently or changing your security settings to block cookies. Keep trying to restore the default settings recommended by Microsoft.

To restore default privacy settings:
  • At first, click the Start button and select the Control Panel. However, in Windows, the control panel is present in the Windows System folder in the Start menu.
  • Next, you need to select Network and Internet the Internet Options.
  • After that on the Security tab, click on the Internet icon at the top.
  • Again click Default Level. Keep the default setting as the medium. The Default Level button is unavailable if the Medium is already selected.
  • And finally, click OK to apply the changes and close the window.

But if in case you don’t want to restore the default settings then you can contact your financial institution regarding your minimum security and privacy settings. In order to online account services with Quicken, manually change the settings in order to meet their requirements. One thing you should keep in mind that different financial institutions have different requirements for security and privacy settings.

Note: Keep in mind that privacy or cookie management programs can override Internet settings.
