How to update git password on terminal: Command line utility to reset github password / access credentials

On macOS, you can use

git config --global credential.helper osxkeychain

A username and password prompt will appear on your next Git action (pull, clone, push, etc.).
Eg: If you do git clone: gttps://mfaiz@www.repository.git .

As soon as you press Enter key, you will be prompted for a password.
You can use the updated password here. And, you will be able to access and password also gets updated automatically!


For Windows, it's the same command with a different argument:

git config --global credential.helper wincred


Isn't this simple :)
Cheers.
