  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.

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.

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.

There are other ways you can verify your account besides using the verification code we send to your registered email address or phone number.

When you’re asked to choose how you want to verify your identity, select Sign in a different way or Try something else. This may provide you with additional options, like answering a few questions to verify you’re you. If additional options are unavailable, then you’ll need to contact us. Once you’re back into your account, you can change your email address or phone number if you need to.

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.
