Use GitHub Personal Access Tokens

To avoid using your personal GitHub credentials, you can create Personal access tokens that will give access to a restricted part of your repositories and that can be revoked at any time.

You can create Personal access tokens from your GitHub Personal settings, in the Personal access tokens section.
We advise you to select repo or public_repo from the scopes list suggested by GitHub which means this token will only grant access to the public or private repository but not to others giving access to i.e. account management, etc.
