Hi Andrew,

I see that you opened a support ticket for this and the issue has been resolved!

I just wanted to post the solution here for future reference, in case any other user with the same issue comes across your post: 

It is possible to have 2FA enabled for an Atlassian account ( and also for a Bitbucket account ( If 2FA is enabled for both, you'll be asked for a 2FA code twice when attempting to log in to Bitbucket Cloud. If you want to disable 2FA, you'll need to disable it for both the Atlassian and the Bitbucket account.

In the screenshot above, there is a link "Forgot code?" which will allow you to request a 2FA recovery email in order to disable 2FA for the Bitbucket account.

Kind regards,

I was going nuts over this! You finally solved my day. I was totally convinced that Atlassian 2FA and Bitbucket 2FA were the same thing, until I saw your answer. Thank you very much!!!

I don't understand.  When I go to the above links they are using the same login (Atlassian). I don't see a way to create two nor disable one.  I am having serious access issues suddenly (no changes on my end) having to do with MFA. Please clarify.

Hi @Scott Noring,

2FA for the Atlassian account can be enabled/disabled via this page:
2FA for the Bitbucket account can be enabled/disabled via this page:

When you attempt to log in to, you will get redirected to for authentication, and after successful authentication back to Bitbucket.

We use Atlassian accounts ( for authentication to provide single login to users who use multiple Atlassian Cloud products. E.g. in order to access a certain Jira Cloud instance, authentication goes through The Atlassian account is also used when logging in to community ( or our issue tracker site (

If you're having issues with 2FA, please create a new question with some more details on the issue and we can help you there.

Kind regards,
