I have changed the password recnetly when tying to Sync the code using Tortoise Git i getting below error:

git did not exit cleanly (exit code 1) (2687 ms @ 19-06-2018 15:20:34)

Hi @Thulasiram S,

Can you try to pull using the command line instead of Tortoise Git?

I see that you changed the password but this does not affect the SSH behaviour.

Are you sure that the credentials in Tortoise Git have been updated?

Above solution worked for me.

Thanks you :).
