Request to support hiding copies from 1Password for clipboard history viewers

Community Member
edited May 13 in Linux

There was a PR merged for copyq 8.0.0 that allows it to respect settings specified for clipboard contents so that it will not allow plaintext viewing of the clipboard contents.

The PR is here:

The conditions they mention for respecting password-like clipboard contents are the following:

  • "Clipboard Viewer Ignore" on Windows
  • "application/x-nspasteboard-concealed-type" on macOS
  • "x-kde-passwordManagerHint" with "secret" value on Linux

I don't know if 1Password is already intended to work with this but I noticed it does not seem to work with 1Password for Linux version 8.10.30 and copyq version 8.0.0.

If 1Password currently does not support this "x-kde-passwordManagerHint", could it be added in a future version?

If it does already support this, any idea why it may not seem to be working?

I am running hyperland for my compositor with xwayland.

1Password Version: 8.10.30
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: NixOS (linux 6.8.6)
