How to enter Bitbucket password on mac terminal?

How do I connect to bitbucket on my mac?

I'm trying to import my existing code into bitbucket using terminal on mac, but after I do a "git push -u origin master" it asks for my bitbucket password but it doesn't let me type my password.

Hi Sarid,

I believe that this might be a feature of the terminal, passwords are hidden as you type them (so you don't really see anything happening) for security reasons.

Can you try entering your password when you are asked for it, then press Enter? If you type the correct password this should work.

Feel free to let me know how it goes.

Kind regards,

does copy and paste work in terminal

Hi @ashpak.farish and @[deleted] ,


@ashpak.farish I'm sorry my reply comes 5 months late, I missed the notification when you replied.

Copy and paste should work in the terminal unless there is some setting configured to disable it.
Depending on the operating system and the terminal application you use, the shortcuts for copy-paste may be different than the usual Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V.


@[deleted]  I see that your Bitbucket Cloud account was created a few days ago. In this case, you will need to use an app password when cloning/pulling/pushing via HTTPS and use it instead of a password:

We are deprecating Atlassian account passwords for Git and Bitbucket API activity:

Users who created their Bitbucket account from Sep 13, 2021 onwards will need to use an app password for Git over HTTPS or Bitbucket API.
Users who created their account before that date can still use their account's password until March 1, 2022, and after that date, they'll need to use an app password as well.


If you still have issues or any questions, please create a new question in community and we can address them there.

Kind regards,

Hi Theodora,

Do I have to always do copy and paste to push in Mac Terminal? Is there a setting that it will auto take the password without doing extra copy and paste? Thank you.
