Fix - Github password authentication was removed issue - MacOS/Windows

GitHub removed the Support for password authentication on August 13, 2021, and now we have to use a personal access token instead.

For MAC OS

Click on the Spotlight icon (magnifying glass) on the right side of the menu bar. Type Keychain access then press the Enter key to launch the app - In Keychain Access, search for github.com -- Find the internet password entry for github.com-- Edit or delete the entry accordingly - You are done

For Windows OS

Go to Credential Manager from Control Panel - Windows Credentials - find git:https://github.com - Edit - On Password replace with your Github Personal Access Taken -- You are Done
