    Since 10am this morning on 3/5/2022 I tried to purchase Home and Business, it took me 7 hours to finally be able to purchase by getting another email address. I could not create an account. I could not pay for it. And I could not use my other two email addresses either. I pressed that I forgot one of them and it went no ware. I installed it on the computer of my choice and now I can’t get into it with my new user account. The quality of Quicken has deteriorated greatly and your so called security is not warranted at all. I should be able to put it on any computer I want too and still be able to use the new email and new password, but I can’t and I am pissed. I am going to try to find something else that is not as encumber some as your software is. If you are going to make a software, and I have done this, they you should me done really well. easy to purchase and only use one sign in on any computer, plus have an easier get in touch with customer service at any time. Or at least quickly at a reasonable time frame. If this does by tomorrow with my user name and password with which I purchased today, I want a full refund. I should be able to use this on any of the 20 computer that we have here to work on. Truly I am thoroughly pissed after having to wait this long to just get it installed on one computer. They to find I can’t get into my account. That sucks Quicken. Really. You are losing customers. Pia

    Hi Pia,

    This sounds really frustrating! Unfortunately, it is unlikely that Quicken will read through our blog comments and respond to your concerns. Your best bet will be to contact them directly. Best of luck with this Pia!!

      We know that Quicken is a widely-used personal accounting and budgeting software that offers a home and personal business accounting tool. The official line on Quicken Home & Business is that it’s “suitable for all business sizes,” but the features work best for small personal businesses and secondary income from rental properties.

      Bought Home, Business & Rental property in 2019. I specifically looked for an accounting system that could be run offline for 2 reasons. 1. Security. As we can see that is becoming and extreme issue and even more important now to keep our personal and business information secure. 2. Expense. I don’t need or want any additional monthly expenses. Again, becoming even more important. The software has great features that are very useful for my company/business. I like the software, the interface, and the features. I’ve never used any of the automatic downloading features as I see that as too much of a security vulnerability. Generating reports is easy enough and very helpful.My problem with this software is that the renew reminder initially was just a warning bar across the top of the screen. Ok, fair enough. Paid my $100 and was happy. Later a larger section of the right side came up and shrunk the working area. (Just enough to not be able to see balances etc.) I was even able to tolerate that but started looking alternative software. The annoyance doesn’t end there though. Now, it is constantly popping up reminders on other items that haven’t been an issue. The most recent and worst is the Bills & Income tab pops up with the subscription reminder. Even trying to change any parameters under this tab pops up the reminder. This kind of software behavior used to be considered a “Time Bomb” was illegal. I’ve also seen many others getting away from Quicken. I’ve backed up my data and will export it and get rid of this software asap. Never liked Intuit (30yrs as an IT Professional) and was disappointed when they bought Quicken and ruined it too.
