Authentication Problems

I am quite new about Sourcetree and bitbucket so perhaps my problemis "stupid", in any way when I try to push somthing from sourcetree to bitbucket I have the following error:

git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false --no-optional-locks push -v --tags origin master:master
remote: Invalid username or password
fatal: Authentication failed for ''

Pushing to
Completed with errors, see above.


even if opening the tab Authentication in Tools >> Optionts I have Authentication Ok corrisdponding to my userid, clicking the button Remote, I can access to bitbucket repository (of course I was able to clone the repository from bitbucket to sourcetree)

If someone can help me, it would be very appreciate

Thank you

Hi Tiziano, I have the same problem.. Instead if Bitbucket, I use GitHub.

If I go to Authentication page, I can see "Authentication OK" and there is my correct username, but when I try to clone a repository from GitHub, I have this:

Error: remote: invalid username or password

fatal: Authentication failed for xxxxxxx


Please someone can help me? 

Thank you very much
