Creating a personal access token

I recently encountered a weird scenario where I could not update my repos using github password with error log:
Password authentication is temporarily disabled as part of a brownout.
Setting a personal access token is the antidote to the issue. This wiki is of help while creating the token


@kdaud you saved my day! Thanks man. I encountered a similar issue which I think everyone who is not using two- factor authentication will face sooner or later. So this is a great post someone here should utilize to set up their authentication token in case their github accounts say so.
