How to Disable Credit Card Protection in QuickBooks

Whether your business is small or huge, if you accept credit cards in QuickBooks, you have to adhere to certain rules. There are some new, stricter password protection requirements.  These requirements mean that you must enable complex passwords in order to process credit card payments in QuickBooks.  A complex password is one that has at least 7 characters and includes at least 1 number and 1 uppercase letter.  These complex passwords must also be changed every 90 days.

You must download the QuickBooks update and disable/enable ‘Customer Credit Card Protection.’ It is only the administrator who can perform these steps.
