Package Approved

This package was approved as a trusted package on 25 Aug 2020.


The Git Credential Manager for Windows (GCM) provides secure Git credential storage for Windows. It's the successor to the Windows Credential Store for Git (git-credential-winstore), which is no longer maintained. Compared to Git's built-in credential storage for Windows (wincred), which provides single-factor authentication support working on any HTTP enabled Git repository, GCM provides multi-factor authentication support for Visual Studio Team Services, Team Foundation Server, and GitHub.

This project includes:

  • Secure password storage in the Windows Credential Store
  • Multi-factor authentication support for Visual Studio Team Services
  • Two-factor authentication support for GitHub
  • Personal Access Token generation and usage support for Visual Studio Team Services and GitHub
  • Non-interactive mode support for Visual Studio Team Services backed by Azure Directory
  • Kerberos authentication for Team Foundation Server (see notes)
  • Optional settings for build agent optimization

NOTE: This is an automatically updated package. If you find it is out of date by more than a week, please contact the maintainer(s) and let them know the package is no longer updating correctly.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
