Hello! TIL that macOS has a ‘pasteboard type’ concept which allows developers to inspect metadata about a pasteboard item. For example, 1password adds items to the pasteboard with the type
Why is this useful? A F/OSS mac clipboard manager app called Maccy allows users to ignore pasteboard items by adding their type to an ignore-list.
I tested whether or not the bitwarden firefox extension uses a descriptive paste type for a copied password from the value, but it uses
public.utf8-plain-text. So does the bitwarden mac app-store app
To my question: Is it possible for the bitwarden Firefox browser extension to use a custom paste type for generated and stored passwords? That way clipboard managers could opt to ignore those passwords
