SourceTree continues to push to GIT after password change

We have a disgruntled employee that has taken a company laptop and could do some serious damage.

Running latest SourceTree on MacOS Sierra. Have changed the account password on GitHub but ST, on other machines, continues to push successfully to the repo. I'd assume the rogue unit is also able to push.

Is this a bug in ST or a GIT issue?

Hi Steven! If that employee has secured his account with an SSH key, he'll continue being able to push code to the repository as far as he has the right SSH key. Also, I'm assumming that the repository you're talking about is a private one, so the most effective way to avoid this user from making changes will be to remove his access from the repo, instead of just changing his password.  

Hope this helps!
