Git password authentication is shutting down

As previously announced, starting on August 13, 2021, at 09:00 PST, we will no longer accept account passwords when authenticating Git operations on Instead, token-based authentication (for example, personal access, OAuth, SSH Key, or GitHub App installation token) will be required for all authenticated Git operations.

Today, Codespaces is rolling out progressively for organizations on Team and Enterprise Cloud plans. Organization owners can enable Codespaces in organization settings.

Codespaces can be used for free through September 10th, 2021 (PST) for enabled organizations in Team and Enterprise Cloud plans, after which billing begins.

For users in individual plans, we’re extending the existing Codespaces beta. For those in the beta, access will remain and we’ll share updates on what’s coming in the near future.

Read more on our Codespaces page and in docs.
