When generating my public key for GIT access, I decided to set up a password for it. My push procedure looks like this now:
Enter passphrase for key '/c/Users/USERNAME/.ssh/id_rsa': Counting objects: X, done. Delta compression using up to 8 threads. Compressing objects: 100% (X/X), done. Writing objects: 100% (X/X), XXXX bytes | 0 bytes/s, done. Total X (delta 3), reused 0 (delta 0) To email@example.com:Username/reponame.git XXXXX..XXXXXX branch-name -> branch-name
Does this passphrase really protect anyone for pushing to github, or can this be bypassed?
