I accidentally added an access token to my GitHub public repo.
Five minutes later I saw that and I reverted that commit. also, I deleted that repository and access token.
Do I need to worry about now? Is there anything I should definitely know about this issue?
This all happened 18 days ago. is there any chance of that token still exist in GitHub after deleting that repository.
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
That access-token should no longer exist anywhere on GitHub, as the commits were reverted and the repository was deleted. However, I highly recommend that you refresh your access-token to make sure that you have a new token to use incase the old one was taken at some point.
Hope this helps!
