Why Does Error 179 Occur When Trying to Log in to My Bank's Website?

Copper Contributor

I keep encountering Error 179 when attempting to log in to my bank's website. It seems that the login attempt is being rejected because I might already be signed in elsewhere. Can someone explain why this is happening and provide detailed steps on how to resolve this issue?

Error 179 in Q.B typically occurs during attempts to log in to a bank's website for bank feeds or online banking. This error can be triggered by various factors, including incorrect bank credentials, security measures implemented by the bank, network issues, or browser-related problems. To resolve Error 179, start by verifying the accuracy of your bank login credentials and ensuring that any additional security measures required by the bank are completed correctly. Check for any network connectivity issues and troubleshoot browser-related problems by clearing cache and cookies or using a different browser. If the error persists, contact your bank's customer support for assistance with online banking access or consider using alternative methods such as manual entry of transactions.
