What made Mint stop accepting my Discover Bank login?

A few months ago, I saw a notification that Mint was having a "connectivity issue" with my Discover Bank account. I assumed it was temporary, and would go away soon, but it never did. Today I tried to fix the account by clicking "Fix It" in the account settings page, which prompted me to re-enter my username and password for the account. After I did this, the pop-up window proceeded to the "Connecting with Discover Bank" screen, where it hung for several minutes on "Authenticating..." before returning to the username and password screen with the message "Incorrect Credentials, please try again above."

My username and password for Discover Bank have not changed since I opened the account and successfully connected it to Mint, and if I go directly to the Discover Bank website I can log in successfully with the exact same username and password I am entering into Mint (I verified that it's exactly the same by using copy/paste rather than retyping the password). So why does Mint suddenly think these credentials are incorrect? What can I do to fix the account?


Same thing here, I even tried changing my password of my Discover Bank account it still won't work....

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.
