To unset git config key use the command git config –unset <key>, which will remove a specific key from the Git configuration file. Use git config –unset user.email, for instance, to remove the user.email key setting. Examples of unsettling the keys globally:
git config --global —unset user.email git config --global --unset user.name git config --global --unset user.password
This code removes the global configuration for your email address, name, and password in Git. The git config command lets you set various options for your Git installation. The –global flag indicates that these settings should apply to all repositories on the current user’s computer. The above command will remove the global configuration for the email, name and password. However, it will not remove any data from previous commits.
First command: To remove your email address from the global Git configuration, you can use the command git config –global –unset user.email. This means that any future commits made on your computer will not include an email address in the “Author” field of the commit message.
Second command: The git config –global –unset user.name command removes your name from the global Git configuration. Any commits you make from this computer onward will not include a name in their commit messages.
Third command: The command git config –global –unset user.password removes the user’s password from the global Git configuration. The next time they perform an authenticated Git operation, they’ll need to re-enter their password.
Depending on where the config file is located, you can either use the command git config –system –unset-all <key> or git config –global –unset-all <key> to remove multiple occurrences of that key in the Git configuration file. Example:
git config --global --unset-all user.email
The –unset-all flag removes all the values associated with the specified key. In this example, the key is “user.email” and refers to the email address of the user. This command will remove all global email configurations on the user’s computer, which means that commits made by the user in the future will not include an email address in the “Author” field of the commit message. Also, if the user had set more than one email address globally, this command will remove all of them.
