Complications with Google RECAPTCHA and 2FA codes

I'm finding more and more sites are starting to use Google's RECAPTCHA on their login forms which can be a PITA for 2FA codes that are copied to the clipboard. Depending on how aggressive the recaptcha is, the 2FA code can sometimes be cleared from the clipboard by the time I'm able to satisfy the captcha (select all traffic lights, storefronts, etc. to help our AI driving efforts) or the code itself has already expired.

Two questions:

1- Is it possible to lengthen the time before the 2FA code is cleared from the clipboard, and;

2- Is it possible to have 1Password always paste a non-expired 2FA code when it determines that the 2FA code should still be in one's clipboard?

    Hello, @fongd!

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention. RECAPTCHA prompts can sometimes be so hard to solve. :sweat: It's an interesting problem, and while I'm not sure what the best way to approach this would be, I've shared your thoughts with the rest of the team. :)
