Changing password and login


I'm new to sourcetree and programming as a whole. I was trying to push to a branch on my github via sourcetree and I entered wrong password or login. 

Pushing to

remote: Invalid username or password.

fatal: Authentication failed for ''

Completed with errors, see above

I tried to push again but it doesn't ask for password anymore, just gives me this completed with errors report...

Now I can't find where to change the password.... 


Please help. I'm on Mac

Hi Xenia,

The easiest way to resolve this would be to delete the account (Preferences -> Accounts) and re-add it. That should store the appropriate password and prompt you if necessary.
