Can't clone repo, keeps asking for password Edited


I can’t get past the password dialogue, upon attempting to clone a remote repo via HTTP method. I am using the same credentials I used to successfully clone another repo on the same host, but am still being denied.

you need to provide password for private repositories check if the one you cloned previously is public. and why not use ssh connection, you no need to pass password for ssh connections it solely depends on ssh keys

The question is not about whether I need to provide a password, its that it keeps asking for authentication. SSH is not an option for me.

@bgannin can I please get an answer? It has been over a 6 months and there is no way for me to receive direct support.
