I opened a new GitHub account to separate my biz vs. personal repository.

Now, I git init my local repo and git add remote origin <the repo https url>

I try to push and it seems to always take the credentials of my original account, not prompting me for the credentials for the new account.

I tried using the URL format with


but that doesn't seem to help: I still get an error that the credentials are invalid for the original account username.

How do I login with multiple sets of credentials or how would I somehow reset the original credentials to force password prompt when pushing?


The only way I managed to push right now is by specifying the username:[email protected]/ in the url in the git push command
