Trying to clone from repository keep asking for credential

I am trying to clone from our remote repository while the login window keep popping up, asking for credential enter, each time it popped two, and keep growing into multiple 4, 6...etc

I am fairly certain the password is correct, but it does not let me get through it

How do I resolve this issue ?
