I recently tried pulling my GitHub repo with SourceTree and it kept failing. I was prompted to log into GitHub, so I filled in my username and password, but it still failed. I tried creating an SSH key and using that, still nothing. I googled whether my 2FA could've had something to do with it - got some guide on creating Personal Access Tokens, followed that, still nothing. I updated SourceTree to the newest version, repeated the steps, nothing. Checked the Options->Authentication, sure enough my GitHub account is there, but still nothing. Used the local Git, the embedded Git, still nothing. So at this point I'm running out of ideas to try out as multiple GitHub Login windows are popping up on my computer...
So, how do I connect SourceTree to GitHub, where I have 2FA enabled?
