Use a Passcode or Touch ID to sign into the QuickBooks Online app (iOS only)

Learn how to set up a Passcode or Touch ID for your iPhone or iPad.

Save time signing into the QuickBooks Online app by using a Passcode or Touch ID instead of entering your username and password each time you log in. iPhone and iPad users can set this up by following the steps below.

  1. Go to your device's Settings, then select Passcode.
  2. Slide the Passcode button to turn it on.
  3. Select and confirm the code you'll use to open the QuickBooks Online app.

Things to know:

  • You can turn Passcode functionality on and off as well as change your Passcode.
  • If you forget your Passcode, simply sign in with your username and password, and reset your Passcode in Settings. If you have multiple devices, you can use different Passcodes for each one.
  1. Go to your device's Settings, choose Account, then select Passcode.
  2. Slide the Passcode button to turn it on.
