Message: "Your Account Has Been Locked Temporarily" when signing in to your TurboTax account
The message Your Account Has Been Locked Temporarily occurs when attempting to sign in to your TurboTax account more than 10 times with the wrong User ID/password combination.
The lockout period will either last 15 minutes or 24 hours, depending upon how many attempts were made to sign in.
How the lockout works
You will not see this message when attempting to sign in to your TurboTax account with incorrect credentials fewer than 10 times in a row.
On the 10th through the 15th unsuccessful sign-in attempt, you will get this message and your TurboTax account will be locked for 15 minutes after each unsuccessful attempt.
If you try to unsuccessfully sign in for the 16th time in a row, you will be locked out for 24 hours.
After 24 hours, the cycle starts over. You'll have 9 attempts to sign in before the lockout messages start appearing again.
