Two-step verification disabled but bitbucket keeps asking for it



I've disabled two step verification because my device is broken and I will enabled it in a new one. Anyway, it keeps asking for a code even after I disabled it. Please help.


Thanks in advance.

Hi Ana,

Hi Marcelo,

Do you have 2 step verification enabled for your Atlassian account? If you do, this will override any settings you have on Bitbucket and it will ask you for the code anytime you need to log in using your Atlassian account. You can check that at

Let us know!

Thank you very much! That was the problem. But I didn't even know that there were two different accounts. You should tell the developers to either unite security settings or be more explicit in the messages.


Thanks again.

Hi Marcelo! This has been a very recent change and that's why it didn't even cross my mind initially. I also suspect that's why the messaging between the 2 accounts is not so clear yet. 

Anyway, I'm glad this is now solved :) 

Have a good day,

Hi Marcelo,

I've checked your account and I could see that Two-step verification is indeed disabled. When are you being asked for it? Can you double check it is for a repo that belongs to this account, and not a different one?

Could you send us a screenshot to help us better understand the issue?

Kind regards,


Hi Ana,

Below there is  a screenshot.

Regarding your question about the repo, I have only one account.

Hey Anna,


I am also getting the same issue and followed the steps that you have suggested above.

But still getting the problem.

Can you please help me out in this issue?

below are the screenshots for your reference.



can you or anybody else please resolve this ASAP. Thanks!

Hi I am having the same issue, 

Please help!


Kindly fix this bug, it is blocking our development

I have some similar kind of issue. I am using my Google account to login and I have disabled the 2-step verification in my Atlassian profile page, respective it was already disabled.

I have already a 2-step Auth for my Google account so therefore I don't need another 2-step auth for my Atlassian account. Still I receive for every login a screen where I need to enter the "verification code" received by email. After entering the code I can login and everything is ok. But actually I don't this second 2-step Auth from Atlassian because I have already one configured on my Google account.

How can I completely disable this 2-step auth on Atlassian's side?

@Ana Retamalis there any update on Atlassian side? Thanks.
