How do I use different passwords for different repositories without using SSH?

If someone uses the

hg clone https://username:password@bitbucket.org/username/repository

command, how do I have different passwords for a different repository? I know I can use deployment keys, but the people who need to clone my repositories probably won't be able to set up SSH easily, I want to keep it simple.

To do this, one would ask the other people to create their own users and then provide those users with access to the repository. You can find the settings in Repository Settings -> Access Restrictions, under the gear in the sidebar as you're viewing the repository.

Then, the user will be able to navigate to the repository in Bitbucket.org and use the Clone button to fetch a link with their unique username and password.
