You can connect to an Atlassian account with an existing account, such as from GitHub (for importing repositories) or Google (for authentication).

Occasionally, Bitbucket Cloud also requires a password for an action, for example, when deleting a repository. When Bitbucket requests a password, you simply supply the password associated with your Atlassian account.
