I had to change my username for my financial institution, how do I change it in MINT?

I searched through the other similar questions and noticed that there is mention of a "fix" option. I don't see this option when I select "edit", there is only the option to "delete". Please let me know where to look. Thank you.


Hello maria.garcia964,

I'm sorry that you're having trouble updating the username for your financial institution in Mint, I know it's confusing when you don't see the option you're looking for.  Unfortunately that option is only available when we get back an error for invalid credentials when we try to connect, which I'm not seeing for the bank you have added.  I'm not seeing any connection errors currently; if refreshing does not trigger that error and your account updates in Mint, I would reach out to your bank to see why the old credentials are being accepted.

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
