Sourcetree doesn't keep me logged in.

I'm using sourcetree on a Macbook Pro running High Sierra. I constantly have to connect my account. I never had this problem before. I signed in once and was good to go. Any advice?

We're investigating several sources of authentication oddness. 2.7.1 is currently in late beta and will be rolling out to all users over the next week. If you're still encountering issues please let us know and we'll reach out with a more thorough debugging version of Sourcetree. Our apologies for the hiccup.

It seems to be when using OAuth. I changed to basic and it is working as expected now.

Can you please share some details on what host you are trying to connect to, and if the account added in Sourcetree is OAuth/Basic and https/ssh?

Also, please check if the repository's remote URL protocol and account's protocol match. 

If you are using ssh, please check if the ssh-agent has your keys loaded. If not, please add them to the agent. 

Run below commands in terminal to do so,

To check if keys are loaded:

ssh-add -l

To add keys to agent:

ssh-add <path_to_key>

more like,

ssh-add ~/.ssh/id_rsa

Key in the passphrase used while generating the ssh key and you should be good to go.
