Hi, @BES1! Welcome to the community! 

I noticed that your Bitbucket account was created some days ago. In this case, could you confirm if you are using your regular password or an App password to log in to Visual Studio?

The reason I'm asking this is that we announced in June that we are phasing out the use of user login passwords for REST APIs and git over HTTPS. 

We recently announced the first phase of this, where any user with an Atlassian account created on or after UTC 00:00 on 13 September 2021 must use a Bitbucket Cloud generated App Password for all git operations over HTTPS and for REST API authentication. In this case, could you please try to access Visual Studio using an App password? 

If you have any problems using or configuring an app password, please do let me know and I will be happy to assist. 

Kind regards,
