Github password Changed

I have a repository set up on github and everything worked well, however, my github account password changed to one with the @ symbol in it. Trying to change the password using

git clone https://user:newPassword@github.....

Because of the @ symbol, it thinks part of the password is part of the HTTPS url

    Yes, there are a few ways around this, but you shouldn’t be putting your password in the Git URL. Generate an SSH key:

    $ ssh-keygen -t rsa

    Add it to your GitHub account in your account settings, then use it:

    $ git clone ssh://…

    GitHub offers a few resources on the subject too:
