We’ve just been informed by our data provider, Yodlee, that JP Morgan Chase will start requiring all data aggregators to enforce multi-factor authentication (MFA) in order to pull banking data into financial applications.
If you have a Chase, Amazon Credit Card, or Chase Amazon Visa you will need to re-authenticate and answer additional security questions or prompts in order to keep your transaction and balance data flowing into your Tiller Money powered spreadsheets.
JPMC will introduce the MFA requirement to their consumer base in phases. The first phase will begin on October 5, 2020 for a portion of their consumers. JPMC expects to move their entire consumer base into this requirement by November 15, 2020.
We do not know the exact timing of this change for individual customers and our recommendation is to monitor your Chase accounts and regularly refresh them using the Console or the Tiller Money Feeds add-on > Connected Accounts section if available.
You may need to perform this step every day to keep your Chase data flowing.
We realize the manual refresh process that MFA introduces is inconvenient and we hope to transition to offering an Oauth based authentication method for Chase in the future, which would remove this manual step, but do not have an ETA on when that might be available.
Thanks for your patience and understanding.
