Hey there, 

There are two spots to look here, depending on what's happening.

  1. If you mean your Author Name (Name reflected in the Author Column in ST) > Go to Tools > Options > General > Update the "Default user information section" to be accurate. 
  2. If you mean your account credentials > Go to Tools > Options > Authentication > and remove the affected GitHub account. From here you can re-add using the "Add" option, or go to a repo from that account and hit "Fetch" and you will be prompted for your credentials (and they should be saved)

I think this should do it for you, but let me know if I misunderstood your question.
