Vanguard login security code

Recently Vanguard started offering additional login security with a text msg security code to login. They specifically say that it won't work for "account aggregators, like".

So I'd like to know if anyone has experience downloading transactions from Vanguard after having set up a text msg security code login. Will that break MD downloads of Vanguard accts if a security code via text is setup at Vanguard?

    Hi Jon,

    I can't answer for certain, since I don't have a Vanguard account to test. However, it's very likely that the login systems used by this service and Moneydance are separate, and so turning this on shouldn't affect Moneydance.

    Thanks, I was hoping a user with a Vanguard acct would comment.
