Spammed with github credential requests

Bug description:
I’m not trying to push to git (or using any git commands for that matter) and once a minute or so, the box asking me to allow my git credentials through pops up. I’ve denied all of them, but I know replit had a leak or breach or something with git creds before, should I be worried? Also it’s very annoying

Expected vs Current Behavior:
Expected: No popups
Current: Often, unsolicited popups

Steps to reproduce:
Open a repl editor

Browser/OS/Device: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; CrOS x86_64 14541.0.0) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/ Safari/537.36

Hi @CatR3kd , welcome to the forums!
Do you have Git initialized in your repl? You can look at your Files sidebar and check if you have a .git folder. Delete the folder to remove Git.

I had this the other day too, I think I ended up running a kill loop in Shell to kill git constantly (so no auth request)

Yes, but I want to use github so that’s not really an option

No, I meant disable Git for that repl. You can always go to the Git tab to turn it on.

Yeah, it just seems annoying to do that, and I don’t want to pass my credentials (even if I initiate it) since there seems to be a chance of a malicious third party

what does that loop look like?

Not much really:

while true;do pkill git;sleep 1;done
