What does it take to get some help in here?

I've been using app passwords for over a month now and all of the sudden starting this week I get the error below. I've reinstalled, deleted the app data under my user account in Windows with no luck. Come on I'm dead in the water for days now.

git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false --no-optional-locks push -v --tags origin master:master
remote: Bitbucket Cloud recently stopped supporting account passwords for Git authentication.
remote: See our community post for more details: https://atlassian.community/t5/x/x/ba-p/1948231
remote: App passwords are recommended for most use cases and can be created in your Personal settings:
remote: https://bitbucket.org/account/settings/app-passwords/
fatal: Authentication failed for 'https://bitbucket.org/m1-scott/cryptotools.git/'

Sorry, is this related to your problem? It was appearing on the right column while reading your post.

Except for the last ditch effort of backing up your directories and uninstalling nothing worked in that article. Then they don't tell you what you're supposed to do to restore what you backed up so now I have to manually add back all my repos. Then of course they don't tell you after you've added your account in the auth section of options that when it prompts for your password when trying to pull/push to a repo it's asking for your app password NOT your account password. Yay, another hour of productivity wasted on this nonsense, god this sucks!
