Don't prompt for username and password

Every time I launch Sourcetree, it prompts me for my Github credentials. I only use Sourcetree for local operations (stage, branch and commit). How can I disable Github from constantly nagging me for my username and password?

Under "Accounts" in settings you'll probably see a github account. You can try removing that and seeing if that fixes it.


What version of Sourcetree are you using?

I've seen this behavior in version 2.7.4 and 3.0.

Under Preferences - Accounts there are no accounts. It still prompts me for a username/password. The exact prompt is (URL edited out):



My .git/config's [remote "origin"] points to a github URL.


Edit: 2.7 does not prompt for Github credentials, 2.7.4 does.
