    As a result of Quicken reversing its decision to make your data read-only when any subscription expires, instead, they will now hijack about 25% of your screen real-estate for advertising. Quicken has determined that this is the price to pay if you let your subscription expire!

    This is one of the things that has come to light as more and more users that chose to let the subscription expire are seeing. If you dislike this business decision, you can add your VOTE to “Quicken Inc should eliminate or at least minimize the LARGE Advertising space used when a subscription expires” here:

    One thing to note is that Quicken Web is designed to have about the same level of functionality as Quicken Mobile. They both use the same data that is synced from Quicken desktop to the Quicken Cloud.

    Keep in mind that both Web and Mobile are not full featured versions but only companions to your Quicken desktop data, giving access only to cash, bank, and credit card accounts and transactions, with summary info of investments (no transactions), plus access to budget data.

    If you are looking for full featured access to your Quicken data, the alternative is to use remote access software that can run on any device, to access the desktop data. See the following article for some options, written by the above author on this site:
