1password X doesn't clear the clipboard

1password x 1.15.6,
MacOS Mojave 10.14.6

  • when using firefox, vivaldi or brave copied passwords stay in clipboard, how can I stop this?
  • when using a clipboard manager like paste 2.4.4. (https://pasteapp.me/) passwords appear in the clipboard history. Of course I could put the browser in the exception list, but then any content I copy in the browser is lost for the clipboard manager.

Any suggestions?

    Hi @RalfB! Thanks for bringing this up. We've got some similar issues open at the moment, so I'll add your input there. From what we've gathered so far, there isn't an API in the browser that would allow us to distinguish that you're copying a password, and since 1Password X operates solely inside the browser, that's where we run into some limitations. We may have more leeway with 1Password integrating with the 1Password for Mac app using Desktop App Integration, though, so perhaps it's something we can revisit in the future.
