Manage Your Connections

You can use the Manage Connections feature to set up new Direct Import connections or link a new account under an existing connection. It's also a one stop shop for troubleshooting pesky connection issues or removing connections that are no longer needed. 

For troubleshooting pesky connection issues, only remove a connection when specifically asked by YNAB Support

Remove a Connection

Click your budget name (top-left) and choose Manage Connections from the menu.
Remove the connection to the financial institution giving you trouble. You'll need to confirm you'd like to disconnect the account(s), and then select Done (or Cancel).

Removing a connection will not impact your transaction history in your account registers, and it doesn't require you to delete any accounts. It will disconnect all accounts you have connected to that financial institution, but getting those reconnected is easy peasy!

Relink the Existing Accounts

Once you've removed the connection, it's time to create a fresh one and relink your accounts!

Hover over an account you'd like to link, click the edit icon, and choose Link Account .

Choose Add New Connection, search for your financial institution, and follow the prompts.

Once that account is connected, make sure to relink any other accounts associated with these credentials, too. You'll do so by repeating step 1 but when you get to step 2, select the connection you just created!

Each connection represents a unique set of login credentials for a financial institution. If you have more accounts you'd like to add and they're under a different set of credentials, you'll need to add a new connection.

Pro-Tip: Always make sure you're using the primary account holder's credentials for the best import experience!
