Two-step verification is here

Two-step verification (also known as two-factor authentication) is now available on Bitbucket. It’s been one of our most requested features and we’re excited to ship it.

Two-step verification secures your account by requiring a second component, in addition to your password, to access your account. That second step means your account stays secure even if your password is compromised. Bitbucket’s two-step verification implementation is built on the Time-based One-time Password Algorithm (TOTP), to ensure compatibility with mobile apps like Authy or Google Authenticator.

You will find the two-step verification (optional for you to use) in your Bitbucket account settings, which will take you through the onboarding process. More information can be found here.
