Application Password

Use the application password in your external app or device instead of your regular password if it doesn't support the two-factor authentication. Usually, you’ll only have to submit it once per app or device.

Also, an application password may be required if you access a remote repository using its HTTPS address.

Create an application password

  1. On the top left, click your avatar then choose Preferences → Application Passwords.

  2. Click the New application password button.

  3. Give the password a name which should describe the app you're going to use it for.

  4. Specify the scope of permissions that will be granted to the application with this password:

    • Choose Full access to grant all the permissions that you have.

    • Choose Limited access to limit the scope to specific permissions.

      For repository access, you need the following permissions:

      • Read Git repository

      • Write Git repository

      Click Select permissions and choose permissions from the list.

  5. Click Create.

    A dialog window with the new application password will be displayed:

  6. Copy the application password and store it in a secure location.
