Store Git Credentials


  • Must be in a project that uses git.

Why store Git Credentials?

  • Mainly simply for convenience. Storing your Git credentials makes it so you won’t be prompted for your username and password every time you try to push and pull to/from your Git repository.


First off navigate to the project which is managed by Git

Then type in:

git config credential.helper store
git push
Username: <type your username>
Password: <type your password>

And that’s it =).
