  • Sorry, you cannot do that. You are stuck with whatever Passport was in effect before the servers were removed.

    You could export your accounts to QIF files, and import those to a new file with no Passport. However not everything transfers during that process. On the other hand, you do get a very clean file.

  • Here is Cal Learner's standard advice.  Passport was previously called LiveID.  The server that supported these is gone.  You need to remove that password and then, if l you like, you can set up a local password.

    Disconnect from the Internet.  Pull your ethernet cable or turn off
    your modem -- whatever it takes.  Start Money, click below the
    password field to select "I want to sign in to Money directly,
    without access to all online services." then click Next.


    If you get into your file, remove your LiveID. 
    Do not attempt to change your LiveID.  If you
    already changed your LiveID, use the credentials that were in
    effect at the time that you saved that Money file.  To remove the
    Live ID, go to File-PasswordManager, and choose to remove your
    LiveID.  To remove or add a conventional password, also see
    File->PasswordManager.

    The password is case-sensitive.  If you are not sure of your
    credentials, write down what you remember.  Consider permutations.
    Check your notes.  You will not get into the file without those
    credentials in effect when the file was saved.
