Chances are you have an account on Facebook or Google and you don’t want to have to enter all your information again when signing up for a Bitbucket account. Who wants to remember another user name and password?
We just made it easier to sign-up (or connect your existing Bitbucket accounts) to an account from one of your favorite providers – Twitter, Facebook, Google…
New to Bitbucket?
You can now sign-up in a matter of seconds using your username/password via Google, Facebook, Twitter and GitHub.
It’s simple: pick your favorite provider, confirm Bitbucket can fetch information your data and Bitbucket will do it’s best to fill out as much information as possible to streamline the sign-up process. If you already have a Bitbucket account you can associate it with one of your provider accounts.
Here, I used Twitter:
The username ‘jespern’ is already taken, so we’ve suggested ‘jespern_’, which is available. If the service had provided us with an email address, that’d be pre-filled, too.
Already a Bitbucket user?
For those of you with a Bitbucket account we have you covered. Connect that account to any or all of the external services to make your sign-up process easier (and saves you from remembering another username and password).
For example, let’s say you have a Bitbucket account and want to use Facebook to log in with from now on. Just head over to the “Connected accounts” page under your account settings. Click the “Connect” button next to Facebook, and you’re off! When you return to Bitbucket in the future, you can now just click the Facebook button to log back in. You can of course do the same with the other options!
