CAPTCHA error when trying to perform an operation in Git or with SourceTree


  1. This error occurs because SourceTree is configured to remember your password, and you likely changed your password, so the background attempts to log in are failing


  1. Open SourceTree, and navigate to Tools→Options
  2. Go to the Authentication tab
  3. Delete your old saved password(s)
  4. Click on your account
  5. Click the Edit link
  6. Click the Refresh Password button
  7. Enter your new password, and solve the CAPTCHA
