prompt every time username and password when run git command

I have already set the password for the app on my bitbucket account. Prompt me each and every time when executing git push, git pull, git clone, etc. 

When I am using the same command from VScode prompt remote: Invalid username or password.

Please suggest a solution.

Git does not have any built in sessions that would persist a password.

To avoid password prompts when pushing/pulling from the command line you can use SSH w/ keypair authentication or a Git Credential Manager

For VS Code you could also use our extension that handles this with OAuth dance between VSCode and BB to then allow push/pull.
