by Intuit Updated a day ago

At Intuit, the security of our products remains one of our top priorities. We are committed to helping safeguard customer information. Starting in tax year 2016, industry-wide standards established through the IRS Security Summit process require professional tax software vendors, including Intuit, to validate each individual user's identity and enforce a strong password that requires quarterly change.

These change improved the security of your account by requiring:

  • Passwords must be changed every 90-days.
  • Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) when using a new device.
  • Email courtesy reminder to reset your password when it is within 14 days of expiring.
  • Prompt to improve the strength of existing and newly created passwords.

  3. On the Password line click the right arrow to reach the Update your password screen.
  4. Enter a New password that meets all of the requirements listed on the screen.
