    I haven't found any way to delete a specific item from the Klipper history. The whole history could be cleared, but I don't think users would be happy about this. If you want to clear the whole history, you can e.g. run
    qdbus org.kde.klipper /klipper clearClipboardHistory

    In general, if you're using a clipboard history utility, you have to ensure that data copied by KeePass isn't logged. KeePass cannot contain custom code for each and every clipboard history tool, and often it's not possible to delete specific items.

    So, it's not a KeePass bug. You need to configure your clipboard history utility properly.

    Best regards

    I don't think Klipper is sophisticated enough to filter data copied by KeePass.

    Thus my proposed solution would be to create a trigger in KeePass that runs when entry data is copied to the clipboard, waits a few seconds and clears the clipboard history using the command line in my previous post.

    Best regards
