#167 Keepass does not clear data copied in clipboard !

Chirag Ojha

1st of all I would like to mention that why is it so difficult to report bugs of your software. They say that I have to be a member or something to do so. Come on guys bug reporting is a essential part of any software development. Make it simple, I had to role around for about 30 mins just to figure out how to get in touch with people who are behind keepass.


Softwares used :-
Avast Internet Security v.7.0.1426
Keepass v.2.19

Yesterday I noticed that whenever I copy data (username or password) from keepass and use it in avast's "Safezone" and again come back to my desktop, the keepass doesn't clear the data it copied in clipboard even if I have set it to clear in 10 secs.

For example if I copy my username into clipboard and then go to avast "Safebrowser" and use it in online shopping or something. Then when I return to my desktop my username is still available in clipboard, though keepass time to remove it has ended.
I thought it was worth a problem to report, so I did.

    1. We don't use the Trackers for problem reporting, we use the Forums - they're much easier to use.
    2. You need to register to limit spam. We'd have no forum otherwise, it'd be all spam.

    KeePass clears the clipboard when used in Windows normally so the problem is with Avast, not KeePass.

    When Avast prevents KeePass from clearing the clipboard, there's nothing that KeePass can do. On systems without any clipboard utilities, the clearing works fine, thus it's Avast's fault.

    Best regards
