Are you using a Mac? Are you both using the same computer?<br alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="" /><br alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="" />If you are on two different Macs, then no problem at all. You will each have separate files.<br alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="" /><br alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="" />If you are on the same Mac, if you are each logging into your own Mac user account, then again, no problem. There is nothing you need to do as you will each have your own Quicken file.<br alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="" /><br alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="" />If you are both using the same Mac user account, it is also doable. You will just need to create two separate Quicken data files. If you want to keep the info private, then you will each need to password protect your file within Quicken. Once you have your two files set up, rather than launching the Quicken app (which will try to open the last-opened file), you would instead open your own individual file. The easiest way to do this would be to put each on on the Dock.&nbsp;<br alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="" /><br alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="" />By default, the file is stored in a hidden location in your library folder. The easiest way to show it is to use the menu File &gt; Show (filename) in Finder. 0 http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7827320/replies/19895152 http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7827320 19895152 Michelle Colwell responded to "multiple downloads" 2018-12-08T19:18:55Z 2018-12-08T19:18:55Z Michelle Colwell http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/9878456 https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net/public/uploaded_images/11356484/photo_medium.jpg michelle_colwell thank you for your answer, but to do the download for the app will he login to quicken or do I create an account?<br alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="" /><br alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="" />We have separate Macs 0 http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7827320/replies/19895157 http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7827320/replies/19895152 19895157 Quicken Harold responded to "multiple downloads" 2018-12-08T19:23:34Z 2018-12-08T19:23:34Z Quicken Harold http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/9419664 https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net/public/uploaded_images/11208731/ScreenShot2018-01-09at7.04.25AM_medium.png quicken_harold Hello Michelle. Appreciate your question.<br /><br />You can use as many versions of Quicken that you would like, but you would have to log in with the same Quicken ID (e-mail address) as the purchaser of the program.<br /><br />Hope this helps.<br /><br />Respectfully,<br />~ Quicken Harold. 1 http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7827320/replies/19895164 http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7827320/replies/19895152 19895164 mshiggins responded to "multiple downloads" 2018-12-08T19:31:09Z 2018-12-08T19:31:09Z mshiggins http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/2779851 https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net/public/uploaded_images/10875349/original_medium.PNG mshiggins You should also note that mobile and web access would use the same Quicken ID so any data you sync to the Quicken cloud would be viewable by your boyfriend and vice versa. 0 http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7827320/replies/19895171 http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7827320/replies/19895152 19895171 RickO responded to "multiple downloads" 2018-12-08T19:44:27Z 2018-12-08T19:44:27Z RickO http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/8400030 https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net/public/uploaded_images/10875315/original_medium.jpg ricko_i3b4avxnghg4a On separate Macs, he will need to log into his Quicken account at quicken.com on your Mac and download the program there.&nbsp;<br /><br />After that, you will need to sign in to the program and create your own new data file.<br /><br />However, Harold reminded me of one thing I forgot to mention. Quicken data on the web/mobile platforms is not password protected by file, only by the master Quicken account. Therefore, if you choose to use Quicken Mobile/Web, that info will not be kept privately from your boyfriend. You will need to turn off Mobile/Web sync in Preferences and use Quicken only on your Mac. 0 http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7827320/replies/19895180 http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7827320/replies/19895152 19895180 RickO responded to "multiple downloads" 2018-12-08T19:51:29Z 2018-12-08T19:51:29Z RickO http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/8400030 https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net/public/uploaded_images/10875315/original_medium.jpg ricko_i3b4avxnghg4a Note: mshiggins and my post crossed paths. Essentially saying the same thing. However, the vice versa part (you seeing his data) would only apply if he shares his Quicken account password with you.<br /><br />If you want to keep everything private, then he should log into quicken.com on your computer without sharing the password with you. He should download Quicken onto your computer and sign into his Quicken account when first launching Quicken (again without sharing the password). <br /><br />After your new Quicken file is created, you can go to menu File &gt; Set File Password to create a different password for your personal file. And go to menu Quicken &gt; Preferences &gt; Mobile &amp; Web and make sure that's turned off.<br /><br />He will still be able to use Mobile if he desires since you don't have his main quicken account credentials.<br /><br />It may be necessarily for him to enter his quicken.com credentials on your computer to revalidate the subscription. But that shouldn't happen very often.<br /><br />Another alternative if he doesn't want to use Mobile/Web would be for him to share his quicken.com credentials with you, and turn off Mobile on his end while also password protecting his file. They you would each have access to your own password protected file and neither of you could access any Mobile/Web info since it would not be enabled for either file. 0 http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7827320/replies/19895181 http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7827320 19895181 jacobs responded to "multiple downloads" 2018-12-08T19:53:37Z 2018-12-08T19:53:37Z jacobs http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/8342871 https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net/public/uploaded_images/10875914/original_medium.jpg jacobs_8027562 Michelle, if this helps clarify: you have one Quicken account, and one Quicken ID. That allows you to install the Quicken application on as many computers as you want, and you can create as many Quicken data files as you want -- they just all share the same Quicken ID. (The only real limitation is if you use mobile/web, as others have explained above.) 0 http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7827320/replies/19895477 http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7827320 19895477 smayer97 (QM2007, CDN user since '92) responded to "multiple downloads" 2018-12-09T02:58:06Z 2018-12-09T02:58:06Z smayer97 (QM2007, CDN user since '92) http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/533043 https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net/public/uploaded_images/10911408/imgres-2_medium.jpg smayer97 Be aware that there are caveats to this approach.&nbsp;<br alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="" /><ul alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value=""><li alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="">Since there is only one Quicken ID per Quicken Account, only one credit score, Zillow score, and other data are available via the Quicken Cloud.</li><li alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="">Only one e-mail or phone number can be used for Multi-factor authentication in order to login to Quicken.&nbsp;</li><li alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="">Anyone with access to the Quicken ID has access to any/all your personal info that is available via My Account on Quicken.com, where they could update the password, billing information, etc.&nbsp;</li><li alt="" name="" rel="" target="" title="" type="" value="">Any data file with the same Quicken ID can access any cloud data from any other data file tied to the Quicken ID (relevant for mobile sync and EWC aggregation).
