Your finances are serious business. Passwords aren't as secure as they used to be and if someone gets your password, they can access your account and make unauthorized changes. That’s why we require periodic multi-factor authentication and will ask you to enter a text or emailed code. We just want to make sure it's really you and keep the bad guys out.
We do recommend turning on the additional Two-Step Verification that will opt you in for a verification code on every login.
How do I turn on or off additional two-step verification?
Two-step verification is an optional security function you can turn on or off that will require Multi-Factor Authentication every time you sign in. This setting does not control the automatic Multi-Factor Authentication that triggers when you are signing in from a new device or if your cached sign in has expired.
- Sign in to accounts.intuit.com using your user name and password.
- Under the Sign In & Security select Manage sign in & security.
- Next to Two-step verification select Turn On.
- Choose your verification method and select the Turn On button.
- Confirm your choice:
- For text message confirm your password and select Turn on text message verification.

To disable two-step verification choose Turn Off on Step 3.
