Sourcetree continously asking for password to


Sourcetree keeps asking the password to login to, even though I don't have any repository in bitbucket.

I can log in just fine to with my username/password, but sourcetree keeps asking again and again every 10 minutes. In the dialog I can't edit the user name either. How can I get rid of this message?

Go to View > Show Hosted Repositories, and see if you have a Bitbucket account entered there. If you aren't using any Bitbucket repositories on this machine, it is safe to delete that account from sourcetree.

I don't have any hosted repository

If you don't have any "hosted repositories", and none of your repositories have a Bitbucket remote, then I can't think of any reason why SourceTree would be asking you for credentials.
