Remotes as part of a Git repository point to the remote repo URLs. On your local machine these are known as origin. By default, each repo has a single remote, although in some scenarios that might not be the case. I haven’t seen one yet, but if you do, please let me know.
To get the remotes name, run:
git remote show
This command doesn’t show much, so if you want to see where this origin points to, use:
git remote -v
origin https://<git_username>:<git_secret>@<repo_url> (fetch) origin https://<git_username>:<git_secret>@<repo_url> (push)
