App password not enforced accessing BitBucket via Git command line

However, running "git pull" again with the same password immediately after, the command is executed successfully.

Below is a screenshot of the output, the issue being that the second time "git pull" is run, the pull operation begins.

While this is very convenient, it seems to partially negate the security benefits of two-factor authentication, and I couldn't find any other places where this is reported.
