SourceTree 2.5.2 keeps asking for Github password.

I have been a SourceTree user for quite a while, I do love the application and is the one I recommend for anybody wanting an efficient UI on top of Git. That being said, the application has been plagued with authentication issues that are borderline infuriating, to the point I went using GitKraken for a little while. Truth is I prefer SourceTree, find it much powerful and I'm used to it. So I went back a few days ago and I still have issues connecting on Github, my password being asked each time I push. I re-created my Github account, used OAuthm signed in, etc... but no dice.

Is there anything I can do?

 

Cheers,

Hi Brian,

Thanks for getting back to me, I think I solved the problem by deleting all the SourceTree entries in my Keychain. I'll come back if they reappear.

Thomas, Did that solve the problem?

I too can't login to my github account in ST 2.5.2. Keeps saying the authentication failed due to bad credentials.
