QuickBooks users who store, process, or transmit customer credit card data in QuickBooks are required to protect that data by complying with the
Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS).
To learn more about whether or not you should enable protection, see customer credit card protection overview.
To enable customer credit card protection:
Only the QuickBooks Administrator can do this task.
Go to the Company menu and click Customer Credit Card Protection.
If you don't see this menu option, QuickBooks automatically stores credit card information for you and you don't have to enable protection yourself.
Click Enable Protection to begin the setup.
Complete all additional tasks for compliance.
