Hello @Lucian Z_ ,

Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

The error message you are receiving indicates that the key you are trying to add is already currently added as an access key in one or more repositories. A key can't be added at the same time as an Access key and Account key (the ssh key you configure in your Personal Settings), so this is the reason why you are receiving the error.

You can find the access keys of a repository by navigating to the repository and going to Repository Settings > Access keys. You can go through the repositories of your workspace to find out which repositories have the key and remove it. In case you are still not able to find out where the keys are located, please let me know so I can create a support ticket for you, where you can share your public key so we can locate where its currently added.

Thank you, @Lucian Z_ !

Hi @Lucian Z_ ,

I would recommend setting up 2FA along with SSH key to avoid third-party adding keys. FIrst remove the key in the Bitbucket Cloud and go with steps recommend in
