We shared in our last blog that you can now manage repository access control simply by using an email address of a friend or colleague. When searching for users to share with, for security reasons Bitbucket will now only show you results containing verified email addresses. So have 100% trust in who you’re sharing code with.
All new Bitbucket users are now asked to verify their email address during sign-up. But for the 100,000 of you already using Bitbucket, we need you to verify your email address.
In just a few hours we’ll begin sending out an email that asks you to “confirm your email address”, and let’s you do so in a single click. Apologies in advance for the hassle, but that single click will make the Bitbucket service that much better.
