In V 2.x Where does source tree store the accounts saved password ?

Previously, i wasn't paying attention to the 1.9x version's credentials. When i'm using 2.0 now, i found the interface displaying all my credentials.

Where does it pull the credentials from? Because i have found it pulling from gitkraken, which i have already uninstalled, but now it won't let me delete them, there must be a central place in windows where all these credentials are stored.

Where is it?

The credentials are stored in the Windows' Credential Manager, under the Windows Credentials section, stored with a 'git:' prefix.

This is the pattern used by Git via the Git Credentials manager for Windows which SourceTree interacts with.
