Remove large files or passwords from Git history like git-filter-branch. Note: if your repository is connected to a remote, you will need to force push to it. More information:

  • Remove a file with sensitive data but leave the latest commit untouched:

bfg --delete-files {{file_with_sensitive_data}}

  • Remove all text mentioned in the specified file wherever it can be found in the repository's history:

bfg --replace-text {{path/to/file.txt}}
