Sourcetree (v 3.1.1) not allowing me to pull from github with two-factor auth enabled on github

I've been using my password for github just fine on Sourcetree without 2FA, but Sourcetree has stopped being able to pull from github when I enabled 2FA on github. Sourcetree asks me to enter in my password to github when fetching from my repo, but it doesn't work when I enter it.


I've tried using the latest embedded git (2.20.1), and the latest system git (2.20.1); both failed to resolve the issue.


I'm not the owner/admin of the github repo I'm working on.


I'm currently on macOS Mojave (10.14.3)

Hi @Jeffrey Ha,

Could you try deleting and re-adding your GitHub account (not the repository) in Sourcetree, choosing OAuth for authentication, to see if that works properly for you after that?
