Sep-2016 - My HSBC UK account has stopped connecting recently

I know that Mint.com doesn't officially support UK accounts. 

However, HSBC UK, which used to work in the past through some manual intervention (entering the PIN) has now stopped syncing completely. 

- The issue might have started after some update to the HSBC / Mint login method
- Earlier, you would need to manually go to Edit Password (in Settings) and it would show you a login screen with 2 inputs - username and memorable question. On the next screen, it would ask you to input your PIN which you can get from your mobile app of HSBC
- I now get a 3-input screen on selecting Edit Password which asks for the username, memorable answer, and password
- The 3-input screen is as such ok and I have these details, however, I am not able to get past this screen it as it keeps saying that the login credentials are invalid
- This should not be the case as my HSBC account is as such working with the same details

Anyone else facing a similar issue?

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.
