Tried to clone from github and it failed

I have linked bitbucket, gitlab to source tree. So today i tried to link to github and it failed. Kept asking me to key in my password although it is correct. I used another tools like gitkraken and it works without any issues

Hi Daniel, welcome to the Community :)

Can you describe what are the steps you're following to link your Github account? 

If you've double checked that the credentials you're using are correct and still you can not link your GitHub account, please let us know if you're using Sourcetree for Windows or for Mac and if Sourcetree is sending you any error message or just keeps asking you for the password. 

Best regards,
