Public repo I changed to private, now I keep getting prompted for creds in vs code

I created a repo as public and then changed it to private. Now I keep getting prompted for credentials in visual studio code because calls to GitHub are falling auth. I enter the creds but it doesn’t work. It keeps prompting. Help!

Can you connect via a command-line version of Git? Have you contacted VSCode’s support?

I figured it out.  I switched to using SSH with a passphrase which requires me to launch VS Code from Git Bash.
