Family Tree Maker and Ancestry


dovercourt but born Enfield
I don't know if the problem I am having with FTM is with Ancestry or from windows updates but everytime I start FTM it asks for password for Ancestry - and this is getting very tedious especially when it wants to send code to my mobile!!!:mad::mad:
That could explain a lot - I was putting it down to their wanting use extra security ie via a smart phone.
Not keen on the phone idea - as using Ancestry on my 'Smart'(dumb) phone I cannot always read the message so then cannot log in to Ancestry - very backward step!
