Other sign-in issues

If you encounter the following screen when trying to recover your password see the alternative instructions below:

  1. Follow this Account Recovery link.
  2. Enter your phone number, email, or user ID.
    • Try each method if one is not working as expected.
  3. When you are prompted to enter your password, select the Sign in a different way link.
  4. Select Text a code or Email a code depending on the options you have available.

  6. Once you are signed in to Intuit Account, select Sign in & Security.
  7. From here you can select either your User ID or Password to change your login information.

It can take a couple of minutes for your code to arrive. Here are a few things you can do:

  • Check your junk mail or spam folder to see if the email went there.
  • Check all email addresses you might've used to sign up for your account.
  • Unblock or add Do_not_reply@intuit.com as an approved sender in your email app.
  • You can get a new code sent to you by selecting the I didn’t get a text, I didn’t get an email, or I didn’t get a phone call link on the product sign-in page.
  • If you lost your phone, check your text messages online at your cell carrier’s website.

You may have accidentally blocked the phone number we sent a text message from. Make sure to allow or unblock our number 88811 on your iOS or Android device.

If you entered the exact code that was sent to you and it didn’t work, it’s most likely because you’ve generated multiple codes and aren’t using the most recent one.

Try these tips to verify your account:

  • If your code doesn’t work, request another code by selecting I didn’t get an email or I didn’t get a text message.
  • Delete any previous codes we sent you to make sure you use the most recent code.
  • Keep the window with the code entry form open. Closing the window invalidates your code, meaning you’ll need to start over from the sign-in page to generate a new code.
  • Check your email in a new tab or window, so you can keep the verification code page open at the same time.

If you’re signing in using a web browser, clear your cache and cookies to get rid of any pre-filled passwords. Also, clear any password managers or system settings with any stored passwords for the site. Make sure to close and reopen your browser before you sign back in to your account. If you’re using the app on your phone, close and reopen the app.

If you still can’t access your account after trying all of the troubleshooting steps in this article, contact customer service:
