The Mozilla Firefox add-on and the extension for Google Chrome enables values from Secret Server to be copied directly to the clipboard. This allows for ease of access when a user needs to apply information from Secret Server to other locations, however, clipboards generally do not clear the data that was copied.

How do you protect your Secret data from being stolen from your clipboard? Secret Server’s Copy-To-Clipboard extensions add an extra layer of security to your clipboard by allowing the configuration of an automated schedule to clear the clipboard, so that the clipboard is cleared when exiting the browser. Each clipboard extension has a section that allows you to configure these options.

This makes it safe to use your clipboard and know that if you walk away from your computer for a few moments, someone won’t be able to take a password from your clipboard. It also helps prevent the accidental pasting of sensitive information into unsafe places, such as a chat client or email.
