cannot push to github anymore

Using 12.1.6 Ultimate on a mac.

I changed my github password online.

I went into intellij IDE setting and changed my password and tested it (it worked).

I can diff files now, indicating IDEA is talking to a private github repository.

Hoping it might somehow help, I deleted my whole ~/.ssh directory.

However, I cannot push or pull without getting an error 'Authentication failed'.

How to resolve?


I had to disable master password in the control panels and then I was prompted for my password again when I tried to push.

Why not prompt me when there has been a clear failure?
