U2F Chrome deprecation - any plans forward ?


Chrome will remove U2F support in March 2022 (assuming bitbucket is "on the Deprecation Trial")



Approximate stable date



August 2021

Support googleLegacyAppIdSupport extension


September 2021

  • Gate U2F API requests behind a user permission prompt

  • Log a deprecation notice in Developer Console for every request

  • Start a Deprecation Trial; keep the U2F API enabled by default


February 2022

Disable the U2F API by default; but keep it available to sites on the Deprecation Trial


March 2022

Fully remove the U2F API



They push for the newer FIDO2/WebAuthn apis.


Are there any plans for Bitbucket Cloud to support this ?

It's coming even sooner in Edge. Guys, I seriously don't want to be locked out of my repos next month.

Any new on roadmap for this would be good, from guides from 2019 it appears non trivial to migrate. One way street after switching to WebAuthn API's, with regards to server side.
So would very much like to know if it is on the road map to be fixed, or if we all should switch to OTP for 2FA. Same sentinment as others here, would not like to find myself locked out from my account.

I'm also removing my Yubikey from Bitbucket until the migration is done. Would be great if an Atlassian/Bitbucket staffer could reply to this thread.
