git status check do not prompt me for a https password

falkome May 28, 2017

A few minutes ago I transfered my still existing repo to bitbucket. When I was uploading the repo I got prompted for a password. That's ok. write access. But when I was checking my PRIVATE repo with "git status" from command prompt no password request was needed and "git status" told me all is up to date.

Why is reading from a remote repo on bitbucket so easy without a passoword request? I mean is a git pull (like reading via "git status") from that remote repo for friend of my with that specific URL possible? It is a privat repo and only me should have access.

 

Thanks in advance for your replies.

git status just returns information about the local working tree, it does not communicate out to the remote repository.
