I forgot my user ID or password

If you forgot your user ID or password, but still have access to your phone or email on file, you can still access your account. This is the fastest way to access your account if you lost or forgot your credentials.

  1. Go to our sign-in help page.
  2. Enter the phone number, email address, or user ID for your account.
  3. If you enter a phone number or email address, we’ll send you a text or email with a verification code. If you enter a user ID, choose which method you prefer.
  4. Enter the verification code we sent, or follow the instructions in the message. We may ask you for a little more info to make sure it’s really you.
  5. When prompted, reset your password. Or, you can select Skip.

Once you're back in your account, you can change the email address, phone number, password, or go right to your product. If you haven’t already, we recommend adding a phone number to your account so you can receive verification codes from us for future sign-in attempts.

Other sign-in issues

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 numbers 88811 and 97962 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, reach out to our live support at 800-4INTUIT to connect with an expert.

  1. From the sign-in page, select Create an account.
  2. Select an appropriate plan and follow the next steps.
  3. Enter your email address, mobile number, or other fields as prompted.
  4. Create a password, then select One More Step.
  5. Follow the steps to complete billing and payments to get started.
