QB Issue Resolution:

Yes, most people seem to feel the same was as you, based on posts here.

As long as you stay on this release you’ll have this new requirement. There is no built in way to downgrade to a prior release though support has offered help in this area for patch issues in the past.

It’s been stated here that the trigger for the password is PII data (like SSN’s and EIN’s and credit cards) in your file and if you remove that data then the requirement for a password goes away.  To see the PII data in your file, in order to determine if it is reasonable to delete it, use this free report I cooked up for this case:http://bigredconsulting.com/qb-pii-report/

If forcing you to use passwords bothers you, and it appears to, Intuit suggests that you send them feedback from the QB Help menu using the Send Feedback Online option.  Some have said they will send it often, to get the point across.  If you post yours here that might make for good reading. 🙂
