How to use App Password to log in?

jimerman October 12, 2022

After creating my App Password, I followed the directions here, but in my GIT command line I get the following error:


E:\Data\dotNetDev>git clone
Cloning into 'xxxxx'...
fatal: Invalid credentials
Password for '':
remote: Bitbucket Cloud recently stopped supporting account passwords for Git authentication.
remote: See our community post for more details:
remote: App passwords are recommended for most use cases and can be created in your Personal settings:
fatal: Authentication failed for ''

Hey Jim,

I have censored your post as this is a public forum and you had included your personal workspaceID/repo URL.

To make use of the AppPassword - your clone command should have the AppPassword listed beside the username, as well as your remote URL's in the following format:

Remote URL

git remote set-url origin 

Clone Command

git clone

Please try this and let me know how it goes.
