My email address is being pre-populated in multiple fields while creating a new profile

Four times today! Closed out WT between each instance.

When creating a spouse from an existing profile, two of which were for persons over 100 years of age, when the form comes up my email address has been pre-populated in four fields:

A - existing ID

B - marriage date, marriage place, email address

Deleting each and filling in the appropriate information then SAVE and the my email address has again been added to the new profile email field.

Again deleting my email from the field and on save a message comes up that says "deleting the email will result in closing my account."

When saving again, this time the new profile is saved with the correct info that I added. The last one created was Weickart-1 (I don't remember the other three.)

I don't know the appropriate tag so picked "sysops" hoping that gets to Chris W or another programer.

Do you have autofill settings turned on in your browser? That might be affecting it.
Do you use Dashlane or another similar program to keep your passwords for you? Sometimes that tries to fill in fields with my e-mail address.

Add more tags... leader, moderator.

Got to get it stopped.

It sounds like a browser issue, not a WikiTree issue.

Hi Walter,

It sounds like you have an auto fill setting turned on in your browser.  What browser are you using? Someone might be able to help look up directions on how to turn those off.
