If you're using Windows or OS X, I recommend installing the Github
Desktop client. It'll provide a log-in window and set up all the
necessary keys and credentials for you. https://desktop.github.com/
It also provides a friendly user-interface so that you don't have to
learn the git command-line interface (with which you are struggling,
from the sound of it).

You don't need to do any log-in with Atom. Like most editors, Atom is
completely passive from the git point of view -- it'll display the
status of the code, but doesn't talk to the server or anything like that.
