So my account was flagged with "suspicious activity". It's been restored, but now I can only log into QB on a web browser. The app seems to still think my account is locked. I spent 2 hrs on the phone with QB support today to get my account active, but the agent told me not to use the app! Ummm....this is a VERY important feature and a lot quicker to use than logging into a web browser each time I create a transaction. Anyone else have this problem? I've already tried to uninstall & reinstall the app, turn my phone off then back on, etc. I have an Iphone 12pro and it is already UTD with the latest software.
Hi there, fsc2020.
I also like to use the QBO.
I wish I could do more troubleshooting to resolve the issue with your app. Try using the app on a different phone. If it lets you sign in, we can say that the issue is with your phone. You may have some apps that cause our system to detect suspicious activities. However, if it is the same, please call our support back to investigate this further. You can tell them you’ve tried a different phone and it’s just the same.
If you have any other concerns, please don't hesitate to go back to this thread.
Thanks for the suggestion. I tried another phone and it worked. Curious why it’s not working on my specific phone when it was working prior to my account being locked. Little frustrating because I can’t buy another phone just for QB!
I am surprised that this issue has been ongoing for 2 years and no one is having a solution.
Like all of you, I suddenly cannot access the following:
App (it give suspicious warning and not letting me in)
Google Chrome (it say "we can't find anyone with " my login email. No matter what email I entered. I tried another computer and it behave the same. Microsoft Edge and Chrome give me same result, I can only login when using Safari.
I have been trying to chat with different representatives, and wasted 5 hours and getting nothing. The support was a disaster, and all they ask is
1. Reset password
2. Uninstall and reinstall app
3. Uninstall and reinstall browser
4. Free up phone storage (even when I have 50GB free space in my phone)
and then eventually they disconnected.

Thank you for joining this thread, Pearl189.
Let's make sure you're able to login to your QuickBooks Online app.
Before we start, check if the QuickBooks Online app needs to be updated. Also, make to use supported browsers for tablets/mobile devices. Here are some browsers that you can use for best results:
iPhone / iPad
Android smartphones and tablets
Notes about Surface/Windows Phone 8
If issue still persists, you can use different device to login to your QuickBooks Online account. As mentioned by my colleague @JessT above, It's possible that you may have some apps that cause our system to detect suspicious activities.
I'm adding this article to guide you on How to Use the QuickBooks Mobile App.
Let me know if you still have other concerns about the mobile app. I'll be here to help. Have a good one!
Intuit seems have absolutely no clue about this issue. I have been trying to get this issue resolved in the past 30 days and they are just repeating the same procedures (reset password, reinstall app, etc). Whenever they said they will pass the case to backend team, the case will go to nowhere and the case will get closed somehow.
Very disappointed with their customer support. I can't believe this issue can be around for 2 years without anyone knowing how to solve it (besides buying to a new phone).
I've been having this same issue for several weeks now. I can log in through a browser with no issues, and I can log in to the iOS app with my iPad, but I get the error show here when I try it on my iPhone. Reinstalling the app, re-starting the phone..none of these have worked.
It seems this has been an issue for some time now, based on this thread. Has anyone found a solution?
I know this hasn't been an easy process for you, @dgiltner.
Please know that this isn't the impression we want you to have. I'm here to give some additional troubleshooting steps and point you in the right direction of support to fix this query.
Since you've reinstalled the app and restarted the phone, but the issue persists, we can try refreshing your QBO app from your iPhone to refresh the application and resolve the common problems. A large amount of data in the cache might cause this.
From your phone's settings, choose Apps. Then, select the QuickBooks app from the list, and click Storage. From there, tap Clear data.
If the issue persists, I suggest contacting our QuickBooks Online Support Team. This way, they'll be able to look into your account in a safe environment and investigate this matter further.

Please keep us updated on your progress in resolving this issue. It's my priority to ensure that your queries are fixed. Keep safe always.
Thank you for your input, but the advice you gave me to 'Go to the Menu icon and tap Help & Feedback' requires that I be in the app, and the whole problem is that I am not able to log in to the app.
Also, my phone (iPhone with iOS 16.1.1) does not have the Storage option that you describe.
Is there an option to try that fits my situation?
Thank you for bringing this to our attention, @dgiltner.

Thank you for the input. I did reach out to the Technical Support Team and they said this is an issue the QB engineers have been working on for a few weeks and have not been able to fix. So, I'm stuck waiting until a solution is found.
This is not the performance I expect for the high price I'm paying for this service.
