Frustrated with credential while code commit Edited

I had already contacted SourceTree Support Team for this issue. Removed the stored passwords in the KeyChain. It worked fine for some time. I had to reset the BitBucket account password. After resetting the password for BitBucket, when I logged into SourceTree with the new password, then tried to commit new website code, I started getting this issue again. Why does it keep asking me Password if I have signed into my BitBucket Account? This is very annoying and frustrating 


git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false -c credential.helper=sourcetree commit -q -F /var/folders/5d/7r4vxql17q1_d5d3t4zqjl_40000gn/T/SourceTreeTemp.Evdjyy



git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false -c credential.helper=sourcetree push -v --set-upstream origin refs/heads/master:refs/heads/master

Please remove the account and add it once. That should resolve the issue you are seeing. This can happen when a old token was not updated or removed when you added the new credentials. We are actively working to get this resolved in an upcoming release. 

Apologies for the inconvenience and thanks for your patience.

And I did remove and add the account before posting the issue..Frustration is not just the popup but the whole signin process. GitHub was so easy
