As a user my password is cleared from clipboard after use

Q1. What is the problem that you are trying to solve?
When copying a password, the password stays in the clipboard untill overwritten

Q2 - Who is impacted?
Any user copying a password from the list.

Q3 - Why is it important and/or urgent?
This can help with making sure that in certain cases the clipboard is read out, it will have a possible security issue.

Q4 - What is your proposed solution? (optional)
This can have different solutions, or a combination.

  • Auto clear the clipboard after x amount of minutes; keeping track of clipboard changes so it only will do it if the password is still there
  • Auto clear the clipboard on closing the browser/program/extention; keeping track of clipboard changes so it only will do it if the password is still there
  • Option to manually clear the clipboard (e.g. extra button; clear clipboard)

Q5 - Community poll

  • :ok_woman: Must have: this is critical for me to have this
  • :raising_hand_woman: Should have: this is important for me to have this
  • :tipping_hand_woman: Could have: this could be nice to have
  • :no_good_woman: Won’t have: we should not schedule this (explain why)

I would be pleased to have this feature.We recently migrated from Keepass and it was normal and I miss it. We often use Teamviewer (and other programs) to log in to colleagues - or they log in to our PCs - and so there is a risk that someone can grab the password.

@hen Yes we agree this makes sense.
