Copy to Clipboard

Back in version 2.0 of Passwordstate we had the functionality whereby you could click on a graphic in the grid view, and it would copy the password value to the clipboard.

Since then, Microsoft, Mozilla and other browser developers have worked hard to secure their browsers, which resulted in the removal of the ‘copy to clipboard’ feature.

After a little bit of effort, we’re able to provides this functionality again, as well as adding an ‘audit’ record every time a user copies a password to the clipboard. We’ve included an image to show you what it looks like.

PS4 – Dev Update 3

Hi All,

I’ve finally finished 40.14 – New Passwords Home Page. Users can now set their home page to be one of the following:

  • Passwords Home Page
  • Personal Passwords
  • Shared Password Lists
  • Specific Shared Password List

To see what functionality is available on the new Passwords Home Page, check the Development page. To see a screenshot, click here Passwords Home Page.

A couple of other small changes are:

  • Every time a user view’s a personal or shared password, an audit record is added
  • If a password record has associated notes, a graphic will be displayed next to the ‘Description’ field in the grid, and hovering over the graphic will display the note
  • A graphic will be displayed next to the ‘Description’ field highlighting if the password has been tagged as a ‘Favourite’ password

PS4 – Dev Update 2

Hi All,

Quick update on what I’ve been working on lately:

40.12 : Audit Visibility for all Users – Audit information should be available to all users for their Personal Passwords, and Shared Password Lists they have access to
40.13 : Expiring Passwords Calendar View – Have a calendar view for expiring personal and shared passwords, giving the user a more logical time-based view

I’ve also revisited ‘40.01 – Visual Password Strength’ and added a visual strength indicator to each grid object. So now at a glance you can see the strength of all your passwords. I’ll also develop some reporting around password strength in the upcoming branches.

For a preview of the visual password strength, please click on the following link – Visual Password Strength.
