Soourcetree keeps asking for password



I have a GitHub repo configured as SSH.

Every time I'm trying to fetch/pull SourceTree keeps asking me for password for git user.

I can cancel the prompt or provide whatever password (even empty) - it accepts it and proceeds with the command.

Is there any way to disable this prompt?

I'm using SourceTree v 4.0.2 on macOS

I've cleaned up preferences in ~/Library/Application Support/Sourcetree, 

removed old working copy and cloned new one.

This solved the issue for me
