From August 13, 2021, GitHub is no longer accepting account passwords when authenticating Git operations. Instead of password we need to add a PAT (Personal Access Token) and we can follow the below steps to add PAT.

 

Create Personal Access Token on GitHub

From your GitHub account, 

  1. go to Settings => 
  2. Developer Settings => 
  3. Personal Access Token => 
  4. Generate New Token (Give your password) => 
  5. Fill-up the form => click Generate token => Copy the generated Token

 

Now follow below steps based on your machine:

For Windows OS if password already saved

Go to Credential Manager from Control Panel =>

    1. Windows Credentials =>
    2. find git:https://github.com =>
    3. Edit =>
    4. On Password replace with with your GitHub Personal Access Token =>
    5. You are Done

 

For first time we need put PAT in the password field instead of plain text password.
