Username/Host/Password not showing in Options/Authentication

I've successfully used my git repository in Kiln. The password was saved when the repo was first cloned by SourceTree.

Now I would like to delete the saved password and be prompted each time I access the repo. But I don't see an entry for the repo's Username/Host/Password in Options. Even uninstalling and reinstalling SourceTree doesn't purge the 'hidden' Username/Host/Password.

Thanks for any insight.

Solved, thanks to http://stackoverflow.com/questions/15381198/remove-credentials-from-git

Fixed by removing:

[credential] helper = !\"C:/Program Files (x86)/GitExtensions/GitCredentialWinStore/git-credential-winstore.exe\"
