Has anyone recently been able to add your Wells Fargo cash accounts using a read only account?

When I attempt to add my Wells Fargo accounts using a read-only account, I receive the error:

"Incorrect Credentials, please try again above."

I have verified that the account is active and unlocked. I am able to login directly via the Wells Fargo site. 

I contacted Mint support in November. After a few emails and being passed to a higher level of support, I am no longer receiving response from Mint support.

Originally in November, when I attempted to add the account using read-only credentials, I was prompted for multi-factor auth even though it cannot be enabled for a read only Wells Fargo account. 

After I was passed back to a higher level of support I was told that they had made a change. Since then I have received the "Incorrect Credentials"... error above. 

Hoping there is something that can be done to resolve this issue. I am a long time Quicken user trying to move to Mint.

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.
