Update 1: a release preview with fixes for these issues is now available here
Update 2: this issue has been resolved. Please download the Git Credential Manager v1.17.1
We've recently become aware of an issue with the Git Credential Manager (which is bundled with Git) where Bitbucket login stops working. The GCM team recently released a new version (1.17.0) which fixes this issue, but only when using basic authentication.
If you're using basic authentication: please download and install GCM 1.17.0, which you can find here.
If after installing GCM 1.17.0 and you're still having issues: please try removing all "Bitbucket" credentials from the Windows Credential Manager and then try again:
If you're still having basic login issues: you can also try manually adding your login: navigate to https://bitbucket.org and view your profile to obtain your username. After getting your username open the Windows Credential Manager, and add a Generic Credential under "Windows Credentials". Note: this will only work if you do not have 2FA enabled.
If you're using 2-factor login: a hotfix is currently in-progress which should be released soon.
