Multiple times each day, sometimes within minutes of each other, SourceTree's authentication dialog (to our git repository) pops up and asks me to login.  A co-worker is experiencing the same thing.  I've been watching for upgrades for SourceTree for probably 2 months hoping for a solution to this problem.  Since I have received quite a few upgrades during that time, I figured maybe nobody is reporting the issue.  


Anyway, the point, the "remember me" option is checked.  I expect SourceTree to do just that - remember me - and not ask me again for my credentials until such time as they are changed and the login fails. I use Eclipse as well and have not had any problem with Eclipse remembering my password, so I don't think this is a problem with the actual authentication to the server.  And I don't know why SourceTree asks so frequently either.  


Any help would be appreciated.

Are you using SourceTree on a PC or Mac? Either way the best approach is to use SSH rather than HTTP to connect to your repos.
