Invalid username or password and push succeeds for a couple times and then fails, requiring re-auth

Every push generates the authentication warning below but the push works. However, after several times, it will stop working with an error about too many login attempts and I have to re-enter my Bitbucket credentials. I do not have 2factor on.

This started happening with a Sourcetree upgrade that took place within the last 2-3 weeks. Only happens on Mac.

What is the auth and the protocol used for auth? (i.e. SSH / OAuth)

Also, is your URL different than the protocol used for authentication (for example.. HTTPS?)

Thanks Jesse, your answer pointed me in the right direction. I messed up the setup of SourceTree on my new laptop.After changing account authentication to Basic and SSH, the error no longer appears.
