BMO Harris connection down

Anyone else with a BMO Harris account having issues with the direct import connection?  I've reached out to YNAB support and they have their DI partner looking into it.  Just wondering if this is happening to others as well.  Thanks.

  • Mine is still down too.  When I call BMO they have no idea what I’m talking about. Every app trying to access my BMO account has the same issue as YNAB.

    • Thanks for giving that a try, Powder Blue Tugboat ! It sounds like connections with BMO are having trouble across the board. I know it's frustrating when those aren't working!

      We'll continue to work with our import partner to see what can be done to restore the connection. In the meantime, have you had a chance to try File-Based Importing? Let me know if I can help get you started!

  • I cancelled every dollar because it can’t connect too.

  • I received an email back from Acorns, they cannot access BMO either. This is the reply I got - “the account requires a third-party connection through your bank’s website. Unfortunately, not all institutions support this feature and this is why we are unable to connect to your bank.”  So this is a problem with BMO across all apps, not just YNAB. I have been doing the file import, it’s actually pretty easy. But for Acorns, no more automatic round-ups to invest. Very frustrating and making me think I’m going to leave BMO after almost 15 years. 

  • Hi all,

    We're closing out Bank Importing threads in the forum to make sure these issues are better resolved.

    At this time, we're unable to support the CAPTCHA multi-factor authentication method used by BMO. We're hoping our import partners can build support for this down the line, but we can't guarantee when (or if) that might happen.

    The good news is we do have some other transaction entry options for keeping your accounts up to date as efficiently as possible! 

    I know this isn't the news you were hoping to hear (it’s certainly not news we like sharing!), but we'll continue to keep an eye on this situation.

    Replies in this thread have been turned off, but if you’re having trouble with another bank, please fill out this form and our Direct Import team will help you get things back up and running! :)
