Create a personal access token on Github. Use that, not your github logon password.

My ZABAPGIT has the note "GitHub requires using personal tokens (since 8/2021)"

As it says on github https://github.blog/2020-12-15-token-authentication-requirements-for-git-operations/

Beginning August 13, 2021, we will no longer accept account passwords when authenticating Git operations and will require the use of token-based authentication, such as a personal access token (for developers) or an OAuth or GitHub App installation token (for integrators) for all authenticated Git operations on GitHub.com.

The HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP) 401 Unauthorized response status code indicates that the client request has not been completed because it lacks valid authentication credentials for the requested resource.

Faced the same issue. As a workaround, you can create a repository on and access it on GitHub(Desktop Version).

Use the the program to push the ABAP Objects to the file created at the time of launching the desktop version. You can directly commit the objects from the Desktop and it will be visible in online repository.

Hope this helps.
