Hello Guys, I have a  private project in Asp.Net and store it on Github. Now I want to clone it into my local computer (Window 11). I'm using the command:

 git clone https://github.com/BitcoinExample/Example1.git

And I'm typing username and password, but I got an error remote: Support for password authentication was removed on August 13, 2021. Please use a personal access token instead.

 C:\Project\TestProject\Example1\Source>git clone https://github.com/BitcoinExample/Example1.git
Cloning into 'Example1'...
Username for 'https://github.com': demo909118
Password for 'https://[email protected]':
remote: Support for password authentication was removed on August 13, 2021. Please use a personal access token instead.
remote: Please see https://github.blog/2020-12-15-token-authentication-requirements-for-git-operations/ for more information.
fatal: Authentication failed for 'https://github.com/BitcoinExample/Example1.git/'

How can I fix it? 

Thank you a lot for any suggestions.

    From your GitHub account,  go to Settings

    => click Developer Settings
    =>click  Personal Access Tokens  
    => click Generate a personal access token
    => Fill in password to confirm access
    => Fill all items on the form and click Generate token button => Copy the generated Token

     

    Step 2: Config for Window

    Open Control Panel => User Accounts => Manage your credentials => Windows Credentials.

    Find any item contain GitHub:

    Click on it and select Edit and change your password with the token on step 1.

     

    Step 3: Config in Linux

    On Linux, after step 1 you can retry clone again and it will require a username & password. With password pls enter your token got from step 1.

    I hope it helpful for you.

    I got the same issue in Windows 11. It's a private with high security. I have to enable two-factor authentication. Gen a new Github token is not working for me. I have to install Github Desktop and connect with Github and it worked for me.

    After installed you can try the clone project again, you can see a popup authentication as below:

    Click "Sign in with your browser" button and log in.

    After the login is successful, you can clone the project into your local computer.
