Unable to login to github with correct credentials

I have a github repo setup.

I have a github account which is setup and authenticated.

When I try to pull it loads the password input screen. Every time I put in the 100% password (and I used copy paste from logging in via the site itself to verify it worked there), it keeps asking me again until it fails.

Can you suggest what the issue might be?

I have tried deleting the password file and manually entered the correct password numerous times and it won't work.

When I log into github via the web, it asks for an SMS code, however sourcetree never asks for this. Is this missing SMS verification step the cause?
