I am using Git Bash on Windows 7. We are using GitHub as our repository origin.

Every time I push or pull I have to provide user and password credentials. I know that my SSH keys are set up correctly, otherwise, I would not be able to access the repository. (That is, once I enter my credentials the push/pull works correctly.)

I have entered

git config --global myusername

git config --global myemail

git config --global github.user myusername

git config --global github.token mytoken

But I am being asked for credentials each and every time I push/pull.

For this question, if you want to login without giving credentials on each and every pull you could use the ssh link instead of https url. https url is used then it will ask for the credentials when you push/pull.

To check the url you can run:

git remote show origin 


git config -e


check the file .git/config. if there are any changes regarding url changes it then you can able to push or pull without credentials.

If you wish, you can learn more about commands on Git commands.
