Impossible to Push after changing password to BitBucket account

Since I changed password I have huge problems using Sourcetree.

When I try to push I get always this message:

Pushing to https://xxxx

remote: Too many invalid password attempts. Log in at to restore access.

fatal: unable to access 'xxxx': The requested URL returned error: 403

I log at the given url and nothing change.

I already changed password 3 times in the last 24 hours, and nothing changed.

Hi Simone,

Welcome to the Atlassian Community.

Have you tried removing the passwd file? On Windows it is under C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Atlassian\SourceTree\, on Mac it should be under ~/Library/Application Support/SourceTree/ I believe.

Hello Mikael


I am on macOs. I tried another password change, and then in console:


git remote show origin

and by now it's working...

I hope no other regression will happen, since it already happened many times to go back to login error ...

Is there something to fix/delete in the macOs keychain maybe?

You could try and update the password in the entry in your keychain and see if that helps. On Windows I know that for some of my users we had to remove the username from the URL to get it to work (we use Bitbucket Server).
