What to do when you are locked out of your account

SOLVEDby QuickBooks3Updated January 31, 2023

Have you been locked out of your account after failed login attempts? If so, correcting the issue is quick and easy.

When you're locked out of your QuickBooks Online account, you'll see the following message: You have tried to sign in more than 5 times. After you see this message, you can continue to sign in by entering the special code below the message.

Note: The code that appears below the message is made up of characters that are a CAPTCHA code. A CAPTCHA code is used to secure your account from unauthorised access from automated bots.
  1. Type the letters and/or numbers that appear squashed or distorted.
  2. Enter the correct user ID and password on the sign-in page.
Tip: If you're having trouble remembering your user ID or password, see Reset your password or recover your user ID.

Now you have secure access to your account.
