RBC Royal Bank - Connection Issues
Incident Report for YNAB

Unfortunately, this issue with RBC's two-factor authentication push notifications is proving to be much more complex to resolve than was originally anticipated and is now considered a long-term issue. While work will continue to be done behind the scenes, we will be retiring this from our Status Page to keep the information here as fresh and relevant as possible.

No need to worry though! For persistent issues like we are experiencing with RBC, we will update our Watchlist Institutions article, so you can monitor the status of your bank there.

While we've seen some recovery in our stats and are hopeful things will continue moving in the right direction, we're not confident enough to call this resolved yet. If you haven't done so recently, though, please try reauthorizing or re-adding your RBC connection—it will give us more stats to work with and may result in a successful connection!

We've identified the cause of the issue, and we're working with our Direct Import provider on the next steps. Continue to use our other transaction entry methods to keep your accounts up to date.

As we move further into the holiday season, we expect work on issues like this to slow and resolutions to take longer than usual. All teams involved will be back to business as usual in the new year, and we'll be sure to share more updates then!

We are continuing to investigate this situation. In case it helps get you connected more quickly, our provider suggests logging into your RBC mobile app and accepting the “Sign-in protection alert”, as well as enabling mobile push notifications from RBC. Thanks for hanging in there!
