since few weeks I receive this error message when I update my bitbucket repo with sourcetree:
Pushing to https://email@example.com/mitchnroll/iriparo.com.git
remote: Too many invalid password attempts. Try logging in through the website with your password.
fatal: unable to access 'https://firstname.lastname@example.org/mitchnroll/iriparo.com.git/': The requested URL returned error: 403
To fix it I have to remove my account, wait a little, and then re-add it.
Is there a way to fix it definitely?
I login with google sign in, can it be the problem?

Bitbucket will semi lock your account if it gets too many errors. You can unlock it by going to the Bitbucket website, logout and then log back in.
This can happen if Sourcetree is making repeated REST calls using bad credentials for example. If you are using HTTPS and OAuth credentials Sourcetree should be auto-refreshing the OAuth tokens to prevent this from happening.
