When you use Advanced Setup to add a new Quicken account, or when you edit an account that is already set up for Direct Connect, you have the opportunity to choose the method you want to use to connect to your financial institution. The methods available for you to choose from depend on the services supported by your financial institution, your preferences, and Quicken’s relationship with the financial institution. The three methods are Express Web Connect, Direct Connect, and Web Connect. The table below summarizes the differences.
