How to make Egit remember password and username?

Struggled with this for a while too:

  1. Go to the Git Perspective -> Expand your Project -> Expand Remotes -> Expand the remote you want to save your password.
  2. Right-click on the Fetch or Push -> Select Change Credentials…
  3. Enter username and password -> Select Ok

This is the workaround I’ve found to work. It’s a bit manual for each Git project, but it works ^_^.
