Token Update

When I entered the email and password verification to push the changes onto GitHub I received an email saying to use tokens instead, per a Git update. However if I try to use that on the workspaces console it doesn't work, but if I use my password instead of a token that doesn't seem to work either.

I'm hard stuck on this for that exact reason. Also can't paste which is going to make typing the token fun...

Just ran into this issue as well. Followed the directions in the link below to create a Personal access token, then used this token instead of the password when prompted in the command line: https://docs.github.com/en/authentication/keeping-your-account-and-data-secure/creating-a-personal-access-token

This issue seriously calls for an update to the course.

Thanks Rafael this worked for me perfectly.. yes typing that centipede token was a pain but I can't stand not being able to complete a task plus I got to learn something new in the process so thanks!
