asking about downloading using clone link

I have created my account on bitbucket using my university email account, so my university email (google email) is requested when I log in to the website. The password used for login in is the one used for my email. 
In case of trying to clone one of the repositories using the link, the password is required for completing the cloning. what is password should I use for completing the download using the clone link?

Hi, @Zeineldin Elserfy! Welcome to the community! 

When cloning a repository, you can use either SSH or HTTPS methods. In case you would like to use SSH, I suggest you follow the process described in the following documentation to create an SSH key and add it to Bitbucket: 

In case you are using HTTPS, I suggest that you create an App password to authenticate. You can find all the steps to create that in this documentation: 

Just to give you some context, 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, so this is the reason I suggest the App password in case you use HTTPS. 

Please let me know how it goes and feel free to share any additional questions or concerns regarding this case. 

Kind regards,
