Entered incorrect password for Github login when trying to push to Github repository

Hi, I entered the incorrect password for my Github login when trying to push to remote repository on Github.  It seems like Source Tree saved the incorrect password.  How do I solve this? I get the following error when trying to push:

 

git --no-optional-locks -c color.branch=false -c color.diff=false -c color.status=false -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false -c credential.helper=sourcetree push -v --tags --set-upstream origin refs/heads/master:refs/heads/master

Hello! You should be able to go into the options, and edit the account there. If that doesn't work, then you might need to open the (if you're on Windows) the credential manager and remove all entries with "GitHub" under "Windows Credentials".

How about if I am on Mac?
