Skip clipboard manager (KDE Klipper) on copy from Bitwarden app

Feature name

Skip clipboard manager on copy

Feature function

Password copy to clipboard functionality adds the password to built-in clipboard manager (Klipper) in KDE on Linux.

Desired behavior: Copying a password will not store it in the clipboard manager. It should delete the password, skip storing the password, or overwrite the password stored in the clipboard manager after a period of time.

Other password mangers such as KeepassXC overwrite the copied password in the clipboard manager.
This is a security risk as passwords shouldn’t be in the clipboard manager.

Additionally, setting clear clipboard after 30 seconds in Bitwarden desktop app has no affect.

Below is a link to how this is implemented in KeepassXC:
