Quicken/BECU EV Certificate Problem Resolved

Send Article to a Friend

BECU, a credit union in Washington, alerted its members this week that banking transactions can once again be downloaded in Quicken 2007 for Mac and previous versions. In mid-December, BECU updated its Web site's certificate to use Extended Validation (EV), which provides greater credibility to a secure certificate. (See "Quicken for Mac Lacks Extended Validation Certificate Support," 2008-12-23.)

Whatever the change was - BECU attributes the fix to Intuit - it worked fine and I'm once again able to download transactions.

It's still unclear how quickly Intuit intends to update Quicken 2007, the current latest release of personal-finance software for Mac OS X, and whether the company will fix earlier versions of Quicken, too. Intuit said that the upcoming Quicken Financial Life for Mac, due out in mid-2009, will incorporate correct EV support. The new software will require Mac OS X 10.5 or later, and thus won't be appropriate for all current Quicken users.
