Are you seeing this error after running git push

error: The requested URL returned error: 403 Forbidden while accessing https://{yourusername}:{password}@github.com/yourRepo/ fatal: HTTP request failed

Note that 403 means is an HTTP code that means forbidden. It implies that your URL exists, the server is working, but there are some access/permission issues. It could be authentication or authorization.
