I need to add app password to clone?

I was thinking of doing some coding today. Instead i had to spend 3.5 hours in order to get SourceTree working on my new laptop (windows 10).

Fresh installed "SourceTree" (latest) and i am using HTTPS and Basic authorization (seems to be the only thing working) OAuth gives me a blank page!?

I noticed a "credential manager" that keeped poping up. No mather what choice i choose...it would keep poping up until i choose to "use always" checkbox.

Then the clone URL didn´t work giving me the "Use app password" speech. I AM using app password.

Tried to clone driectly from Bitbucket website that has the form of:

https://threeo:@bitbucket.org/threeo/conan.git

Didn´t work at all. So found this article:
https://itsmycode.com/solved-remote-bitbucket-cloud-recently-stopped-supporting-account-passwords-for-git-authentication/

So now i have to edit the clone URL to this:
https://threeo:u4LYS4y9TzbaJ2ZbyZbb@bitbucket.org/threeo/conan.git

And suddenly it worked. But do i need to do that everytime i need to clone a remote repositary? Why? This is such a hazzle.
