Git Authentication with wincred


Here I am again struggling with wincred. At least according to the article on GitHub.

I’ve already done this in the past I believe:

git config --global credential.helper wincred

But finding out where and what wincred is exactly again is where I started to get lost again.

Windows Credential Manager

With windows 10 you can type “Credential” into the Start Menu or the Control Panel and quickly find the Credential Manager.

Once in there you can jump over to Windows Credentials¬†(oddly not Web Credentials as one would assume) and “Add a generic credential

Now you should be good to go!
