CAPTCHA Error - Bitbucket works fine in Browser

git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false fetch origin
fatal: remote error: CAPTCHA required
Your Bitbucket account has been locked. To unlock it and log in again you must
solve a CAPTCHA. This is typically caused by too many attempts to login with an
incorrect password. The account lock prevents your SCM client from accessing
Bitbucket and its mirrors until it is solved, even if you enter your password
correctly.

If you are currently logged in to Bitbucket via a browser you may need to
logout and then log back in in order to solve the CAPTCHA.

Visit Bitbucket at https://bitbucket.pearson.com for more details.

Source tree is not working to push files into bitbucket, shows the above error message.

i am having same trouble, did you able to resolve that error??

Possible solutions are:

  • Update GIT-version (if using System Git in SourceTree)
  • switch to Embedded GIT Version in SourceTree

No Update no switch, close SourceTree, open console (Terminal) and try this one:

git config --global credential.helper osxkeychain

After this start SourceTree again, type your Password for SourceTree and push again ;)

I've the same issue, because i let the system remember my psw,  and after that i change my psw for windows. So it always try to login with my old password and request for CAPTCHA.

Solution:

1. clean your default psw and clean all the history

2. enter the your new password manually for all the related places: wiki,bitbucket

Then you will not be bothered again by CAPTCHA.
