I will preface with I am a hardware engineer so I tend to get lost in the fog of this topic. A few years back I was able to setup a github account and had things working nicely. I received an email notification that two factor authentication was soon to be needed. I decided to attempt to get it set up so I did so using a phone number for SMS. I did not change my password or anything else. It all seemed pretty benign at the time although I was leary of what was to come. Today I tried my first commit since then and now I can no longer commit although my local repository shows icon overlays have changed to green checks after I did so…I am using git tortoise as my local client software on a windows 10 machine. Can someone tell me what else I have to do to be able to commit again?
After putting username and password onto tortoise under a commit I get the following results
git.exe push --progress “origin” master:master
remote: Invalid username or password.
fatal: Authentication failed for ‘https://github.com/xxxxxx/Customers.git/’
git did not exit cleanly (exit code 128) (13235 ms @ 12/31/2020 5:13:43 PM)
