Mint is unable to connect to 4 of my accounts. The username is being automatically altered to another account's username. Why is this happening?

- I have deleted accounts and reactivated them with the correct username and password and the usernames are again automatically changed.

- This is a software glitch, not user error or communication issue a bank or credit company.

I've answered this question previously, but I can't find that prior answer at the moment.  When you click the "Edit my bank info" link, the textboxes for username and password will be empty.  If they are not, it is because either you have some "autofill" function enabled for your browser or you have a password manager extension turned on.  If you don't believe me, use Incognito Mode in Chrome (or the comparable function for your particular browser), then log into Mint and do the "Edit my bank info" link from inside that session.  There are some autofill functions/extensions that are really persistent about overwriting whatever you've typed in, so look for a way to disable whatever is controlling your autofill.

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.
