SourceTree requires login for every pull and commit

Any time I go to pull, push, or commit in SourceTree, it fails. I end up having to go into preferences, and reconnecting my account, even though I've never logged out or disconnected. 

Noone else in the office has these issues and we all have the same Auth Type, settings etc.

It probably wouldn't bother me too much, but because I swap between 10+ repos each day, it kind of adds up. 

Does anyone have a fix?

Running the latest version of ST and on Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6 if that matters?

Can you please remove the account once, remove any items written by sourcetree in keychain and then add the account afresh?

This gets rid of any duplicate keychain items you may have and fixes the issue 9 out of 10 times.
