login problem; no error message

Browser just "wheel turning" waiting for response. tried in Chrome and Edge; same problem in each. Tried enabling Flash, but doesn't help.

QB Customer service number says "please login and click help", but I can't do that if I can't log in!


Hello there, carolyn999-smile,

I appreciate you for trying to fix your login concern by accessing QuickBooks using other supported browsers. Rest assured that I'm here to help you access your account so you can continue with your business without interruptions.

Let's first access your account through a private browsing window to verify if the behavior is a result of browser hang-ups. 

Please refer to the keyboard shortcuts in all supported browsers:

  • Chrome: Ctrl+Shift+N
  • Internet Explorer: Ctrl+Shift+P
  • Firefox: Ctrl+Shift+P
  • Safari: Command+Shift+N

Once done, log in to your account by visiting the https://qbo.intuit.com website again. If you're able to do so, this means your browser is already loaded with your historical data. For this to be avoided, you need to get back to your regular browser and clear its cache and cookies.

I also recommend to use other supported browsers when logging in to QuickBooks as an alternative.

In case the suggested troubleshooting steps above won't work, I'd suggest subscribing to a free trial account using a different email so you can get in touch with our QuickBooks Online Support Team by visiting the Help menu once logged in.

In case the suggested troubleshooting steps above won't work, I'd recommend contacting our QuickBooks Online Support Team. Since you can't open your account, you can subscribe to a free trial account using a different email address. Visit the Help menu once logged in, and make sure to let the representative know that your concern is about your account's login credentials and provide your email address.

Please let me know if you have other concerns. I'm just around if you need further help.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
