Guys, this is not the regular Quicken but rather a lite version (checkbook). Mint is better.

I have used Quicken for years, using both manual entry and electronic bank downloads, and have never experienced security issues. I'm not sure how Quicken Checkbook differs from Mint (or even IF they do), but both are Intuit products, anyway. Perhaps they are rebranding Mint?
I'm not afraid of the security issue and I think for the most part ppl are overly scared to the cloud thing. I'm not as afraid of security as to a site goes out of biz and I loose my data. In our connected world, I find being able to work on multiple devices (especially smartphones) a must have.
One other thing is that you will be nagged (read: forced) to upgrade in the future with desktop applications because that's how they make their money. For those that use QuickBooks you know what I mean. After a few years, you have no choice but to upgrade because they will start disabling features on the old versions. e.g. online features, etc.

No. Leave that blank.

I use Quicken Starter edition for basic record keeping and am fairly happy since I'm not doing anything complicated (reviewing account transactions and balances). I'm wondering how this version compares.

Downloaded and ready to install but it says it will not import my data from my old version. Will have to load this to new computer and determine if it has any advantage over old version and if so start new with it at the beginning of the new year.

coolbreeze said: In for no good reason (use YNAB and Mint).
I used Money and Quicken for years, and it wasn't until I started using YNAB that I felt like I could actually make a budget that worked. Both of them always wanted my monthly budget to be the same every month, even if I overspent thousands the month before.
For replacing a checkbook, Quicken may be better, but for budgeting, it is YNAB all the way!

i got it, paid for the bank link feature. printed the online receipt, it had the 18 character code. received an email confirmation/receipt (which talked about downloading?!? what?) but email receipt did not have bank link code. opened Checkbook, tried to add the feature, i.e. bank link, using code from online receipt (with and without the dashes). wont take it. Any ideas?
