I'm using sourcetree 1.6.18 and it keep asking password. I tried Removing and adding account in hosted repositories.But still it keep asking password every time even when i don't pull of push. Even though remember password is ticked it didn't save the password.
Hi Dan, I'm not so clear about your answer. It means that you solved it by turning ON 2-factor authentication, turning it OFF would cause problem, do I get it correctly? Actually it should be considered a workaround: I'm doing so now, up until now so far so good, no more annoying pop-up asking for password every 15 minutes. But there's some trade-offs: - Turning on 2FA means that everything must be done through SSH. At first I avoided the mess with setting up the key, set SSH agent running etc, and I guess many people prefer HTTPS for the same reason. - No longer see the list of your repos via built-in menu (Ctrl + Shif + H or View > Show hosted repositories). SoureTree basically cannot sign in with 2FA turned on. (They're "still" busy with implementing app-specific password or token). Anyway, now I prefer SSH, as with HTTPS no matter how I tried (editing account, deleting account and add again, leave account fields blank, do git pull in git bash, edit in Options > Authentication, ...) it KEEPS asking for password, even in "idle" time (no pull, no push). Drives me nuts literally.
Supported Platforms macOS Sourcetree has a lot to offer and, like many developer tools, finding and using it all can be a challenge, especially for a new user. Everyone might not love ...
