Updated to macOS Big Sur and enabled two-factor authentication for Github

Posted by Ninja Space Content on Tuesday, December 29, 2020 Under: tech issues
Making sure all the tech, files, codes, branches and operating systems are up-to-date is a job in itself! I updated my operating system to Big Sur and am enabling my Github to two-factor authentication.

Today, is the first day I checked out my new macOS interface with Big Sur and I love it! Big Sur is located a couple hours from me and is such a beautiful place so I have such a good feeling about this operating system.

This morning, I also updated my settings in Github to enable two-factor authentication using sms messaging. It's mandatory to do that now because "Basic authentication using a password to Git is deprecated and will soon no longer work." I got that exact message in my email inbox from Github when I was trying to push my files to Github yesterday.

Another weird thing I'm having trouble with is when I am working with React, it works and runs fine until I push my files to Github, then it breaks. I know it has to do with the changes in package.json when I do that so right now I am just going to work in my files without pushing to Github, which sucks but I'll have to figure that one later.

Update: I figured out how to clone a repository using the new Two Factor Authentication via GitHub. Read more.
