Keep Your Intuit Account Info Safe from Scams!

    In addition to serving as a worldwide financial platform, Intuit is concerned about your security. Any unsolicited complexities, like hackers and scams, will unavoidably attempt to steal your information. Here, we will walk you through the actions you may take to stop such attacks from occurring.

    To safeguard your Intuit account from scams, take these steps to secure your account even more:

    Our dedication to your data’s security is unwavering. We use robust measures like multi-factor authentication and advanced anti-fraud technology to halt suspicious activities preemptively. Discover more about our security commitments.

    However, safeguarding against scammers is a joint effort. Here are steps you can take to help us protect your information.

    Do Not Disclose Your Login Details:

    Watch out for imposter frauds that pose as Intuit employees and ask for account verification information. Also, Intuit will never contact you by phone, email, or text message to request a password or one-time code. Learn about avoiding online scams at

    Keep Your Data Secure:

    • Ensure your account includes a current phone number.

    • Implement an authenticator app for generating reliable one-time passcodes.

    • Update your Intuit Account profile with your name and address, aiding in identity verification during account recovery.

    • Avoid repeating passwords across various sites.

    • Regularly monitor your account activity for any unauthorized access or transactions.

    • Use strong, unique passwords that mix letters, numbers, and symbols. Learn more about protecting your password.

    • Be cautious about the security of your email account linked to your Intuit account, as it can be a gateway for hackers.

    • Consider changing your security questions periodically and choose questions that are challenging to guess.

    • Update these details under the Sign-in and Security and Profile sections at

    Here are a few more tips to further enhance the security of your Intuit account:

    • Enable Email Notifications: To be informed of any changes or logins to your account, choose to get email alerts. This way, you’ll be immediately aware of any unauthorized activity.
    • Use a Dedicated Email Address: Consider using an email address exclusively for your Intuit account. This reduces the risk associated with email-based phishing attacks.
    • Regular Software Updates: Keep your computer and mobile devices updated with the latest security patches and software updates. Outdated software can be a vulnerability for hackers to exploit.
    • Secure Your Devices: Ensure that any device you use to access your Intuit account has adequate security measures, like a strong passcode or biometric locks.
    • Be Wary of Public Wi-Fi: Avoid accessing your account from public Wi-Fi networks. If necessary, use a VPN (Virtual Private Network) for a more secure connection; there’s a good risk that cybercriminals are on the same network as you and could be able to steal sensitive data.
    • Educate Yourself About Phishing Scams: Stay informed about the latest phishing techniques. Scammers often use urgent-sounding messages or threats to trick you into revealing personal information.
    • Review Account Statements Regularly: Check your financial statements linked to your Intuit account regularly for discrepancies or unauthorized transactions.
    • Use a Secure Browser: Access your account from a secure, up-to-date web browser. Consider using privacy-enhancing extensions or settings, such as Tor Browser.
    • Use Two Authentication Factors (2FA): Adding Two Authentication Factors to your account will further strengthen its security. Any hacker accessing your account must receive an authentication code sent to your email address.

    Verify that you are taking the above actions to protect your account from unauthorized or unintentional changes. As an Intuit user, you have now maximized the security of your account. If you have any further concerns about your account, don’t hesitate to contact their customer service!

    Remember: DO NOT be in a hurry when checking emails and SMS. Take your time. Always double-check links and attachments. Make sure they come from legitimate sources and people you know.

    Also, activate the 2FA login feature. This security way of logging in will send a text message or a code from a 2FA app.
