Hi Andrei, welcome to the Community :) 

Can you give us some more context so we can help you with this:

  1. Are you using Sourcetree for Windows or for Mac?
  2. What is it requesting access to? Bitbucket Cloud, Github...?
  3. When does this happen? Where you performing any action with any of your repositories?
    • If so, does it happen for every repository?

Let us know!

I'm using SourceTree for Windows and what I did was to remove the passwords file located at:
Did that because authenticating to one repo (VS online) was problematic, so I wanted to trigger new authentication.
