Expiring saved credentials

Is there a way to expire the credentials saved by SourceTree? In my environment we are running into account locks, due to our git passwords being aligned with our network passwords. Source tree often continues to authenticate with old password, without prompting the user.

Am looking to see if changing the cache expiration time is the most robust solution


Any thoughts?

You could also try Wiping the Sourcetree preferences. After doing this, you should be asked to enter your credentials again. 

Best regards,
