What is an Intuit Account?

An Intuit Online Account is your universal user account for most Intuit sites. It allows you to access multiple Intuit websites and applications with the same user ID and password. Once you sign in to your Intuit Account, you can see your orders, download your products, and make some changes to your stored information. Your Intuit Account is created the first time you purchase a product or service from Intuit.

You have the option during the purchase process to create a unique User ID and Password (sometimes called your login credentials) when you purchase a product or service directly from Intuit online. If you choose not to create a User ID and Password, you will not be able to access your account information online.

Important: If you previously purchased Intuit products or services but never created a User ID and Password, you must contact support to ensure that your current products and services are associated with the correct User ID and Password so that you can access them online.

Typically, your User ID is your e-mail address, however, if you created your account some time ago, you may have a User ID that is not an e-mail address. Visit to reset your User ID and Password.

Your Intuit User ID and Password can be used to sign in to several Intuit websites, including;, and QuickBooks Payroll. Once you sign in, you can purchase and view products and services, and download products you've already purchased.

Note: The following services do not use this User ID and Password:

  • Pro Advisor site – your Pro Advisor login does use an Intuit Account, but it requires a verification code in order to enable you to access the Pro Advisor member site.
  • QuickBooks company file – if you set up users in QuickBooks Desktop, the login to access your company file is not the same as your Intuit Account User ID and Password unless you set it up that way on purpose.
  • QuickBooks Online Backup – the online backup feature in QuickBooks Desktop uses its own login credentials.
    Note: If you use QuickBooks Desktop 2014 or later with Intuit Data Protect, IDP does use the same User ID and Password as your Intuit Account.
