Git store passwords

You can also have Git store your credentials permanently using the following:

git config credential.helper store

Note: While this is convenient, Git will store your credentials in clear text in a local file (.git-credentials) under your “home” directory (“cd” should take you there). If you don’t like this, delete this file and switch to using the cache option.

If you want Git to resume to asking you for credentials every time it needs to connect to the remote repository, you can run this command:

git config –unset credential.helper

To store the passwords in .git-credentials in your %HOME% directory as opposed to the project directory: use the –global flag

git config –global credential.helper store

What's your thoughts on this?
