Do you mean a Personal Access Token (PAT)? The general recommendation is to store it in a password > manager. I personally like KeePassXC.
No, I mean the autol-generated password (AKA token).
The token is when I have a CAC. The token is when I have a special device that generates a token. A token is when I have an application that generates a token. This is an autogenerated password. Nothing more, nothing less.
Now, what I wouold like to do is to have it saved on all 3 of my machies OSes. I have 3 laptops with Windows 8.1, Linux (both GNOME and KDE) and a Mac. I also have a VM with Windows 10.
And I need to store it somewhere so the GitHub access it everytime I try to push/pull the code without me interfering.
As I said - nobody in their right mind will remember a bunch of garbage. Unless of course you are a Wolfe Messing.
And according to the documentation a PAT becomes invalid if it hasn’t been used for a year, not > unconditionally.
My understanding is that every year the token will have to be refreshed.
Or GitHub devs already changing their policy?
