How to change login password

Welcome to the QuickBooks Community, deltabaymarina.

I'd be glad to offer my assistance in changing your login password for QuickBooks Online.

You can change your password by clicking the I forgot my user ID or Password link from the Sign in page. Since you can't access the phone, you can enter your email address instead of the phone number, then you should receive a message that allows you to reset the password of your login credentials.

If you still can't access your account, I'd suggest contacting our QuickBooks Customer Care Team so they can pull up your account in a secure environment and change it for you.

Please keep me posted on how this goes, I’m just a couple of clicks away. Wishing you continued success.
