When you create an account in QuickBooks, the software automatically generates an Admin user Id. Sometimes the administrator of the software creates a primary login account and makes different accounts for other users. Only the administrator has some rights, and there is an only master admin who has access to all the features and benefits of QuickBooks. After creating an account in QuickBooks and setting up different users, you can decide who will be the administrator. There is one person that can be assigned the admin responsibilities. There can occur instances when the admin can forget the password. In that case, the concerned person needs to reset it on an urgent basis as some of the primary operations of the software can be performed by the administrator only. If you have a newer version of QuickBooks installed on the system, then you can follow the procedure provided below. But if you are operating the older version and want to reset the password via a security question, then have a word with the techies at QuickBooks Online Contact Number.
