Once I change password, it still marks password as incorrect?

Hi! GitHub won’t allow me to log on to my other account (when I put in my password it’s marked incorrect) and when I change the password successfully, it still marks the new password as incorrect. How can I fix this?

We do see this sometimes where a browser or browser extension is automatically filling in the old password at the last minute.

Please retry your new password using a Private Browsing or Incognito window, or a browser you don’t normally use.

If that works, you will need to find your autofill settings and change them.

Try making sure the password is exactly correctly.

  • Is your password strong?
  • Did someone hack into your account?
  • Does it contain the requirements when you change it? no spaces, at least one lowercase and uppercase letter
