Pageant (putty authentication agent)

Pageant (putty authentication agent) loads every time I load SourceTree. After googling I’m still not sure what/why it has been installed. Should it have been? If so what does it do?

I am not running anything to do with Linux. I’m a little concerned as I see it has something to do with remote logins…

Am I being paranoid is is this working as intended?


Its a program which connects to a git server using secure connection (ssh), everything is ok.
