How to cache your passphrase using ssh-agent

Temporarily store passphrase for SSH key on Windows
Run the following command included in Git for Windows to start up the ssh-agent process in Powershell or the Windows Command Prompt. ssh-agent will cache your passphrase so you don't have to provide it every time you connect to your repo.

start-ssh-agent.cmd

If you're using the Bash shell (including Git Bash), start ssh-agent with:

eval `ssh-agent`
