Github Support for password authentication was removed

GitHub remote: Support for password authentication was removed on August 13, 2021. Please use a personal access token instead.

Github Support for password authentication was removed - In this article I want to share a tutorial on how to solve git errors when we want to retrieve files from github. Here is the error:

neon@neon:~/Documents/KERJA/FAHMI$ git clone https://github.com/Testing/myproject.git
Cloning into 'myproject'...
Username for 'https://github.com': whyme31 Password for 'https://whyme31@github.com':
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/Testing/myproject.git/'


This is because we can no longer use the existing link addresses in general. By default the command we use is:

git clone https://github.com/Testing/myproject.git

But that method can no longer be used!

The newest way is to include a token.

Here is the format:

git clone https://<your_token>@github.com/Testing/myproject.git

 

How to Activate Github Token

To be able to activate the github token, follow this method:
  • Login to your github account
  • Select the Settings menu -> Developer Settings
    Github Support for password authentication was removed
  • Then click Personal access tokens
  • Then click Generate new token
  • Fill in the Note form with information
  • Check Repo
  • Click Generate token.

  • You will get a token code.
  • For example the tokens I get are:

    ghp_FCdJGH4HJSphPEowaGR6WaTonj95Gk3Nn0zZ

  • Next enter the token into the command like:
    git clone https://ghp_FCdJGH4HJSphPEowaGR6WaTonj95Gk3Nn0zZ@github.com/Testing/myproject.git
  • If true, then you will get an error like this:
    neon@neon:~/Documents/KERJA/FAHMI$ git clone https://ghp_FCdJGH4HJSphPEowaGR6WaTonj95Gk3Nn0zZ@github.com/Testing/myproject.git
