Suddenly sourcetree is asking me to enter my password when doing a fetch or pull or push.

I have validated I can log onto bitbucket and atlassian with my current user id and password. I have removed the authentication information from tools options in sourcetree. I even reset my password just in case. Please help

It is possible this is due to the removal of TLS Bitbucket, see for more information.

Essentially it involves making sure you have up to date Git/Git Credential Manager and Hg/Sourcetree versions.

Thanks for your reply. I went ahead and implemented the sugested approach. Still facing same issue.
