why do I have to enter github username and password everytime I push?

Im using github in linux (Pop OS 19.10). Everytime I try to push, Im asked for github username & password.

Is there any method to save it forever?

Hey @lakinduk, thanks for being here! See here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/35942754/how-to-save-username-and-password-in-git for details on saving your credentials though the more secure method would be to use an SSH key as detailed here: https://help.github.com/en/github/authenticating-to-github/generating-a-new-ssh-key-and-adding-it-to-the-ssh-agent
