I use my password (that I even changed after this happened for the first time, to make sure I use the right one), but it won't accept it. I also tried to use the password from the Authy app, but it doesn't work too.

Hi You need to upgrade you Git install, either by upgrading the bundled Git version in Sourcetree in the tools/options/git tab.

Or by installing git independently and configuring Sourcetree to use it in the tools/options/git tab as a System Git install.

We'd recommend using Sourcetree 3.0.12 and/or Git 2.19.2


I created a new ssh key, then deleted all my git repositories and re-cloned them using ssh instead of https, and it worked.
