The Windows 10 security trick you should know if you usually copy your passwords
If you usually copy and paste your passwords, it is better that you be careful and use the function that we are going to explain to you.
Remembering passwords can be somewhat tedious at times, especially when you have one for each application or website. There are users who save them in files or who copy them from one site to another, but care must be taken so that no trace remains on the Clipboard, especially if the equipment is shared.
A lot of information that remains on the Clipboard can be of great value, such as usernames, passwords, bank details or permissions for some websites, but If you use the Copy and Paste option regularly, you will no longer have to worry.
One of the first steps that can be taken is disable the ability to save Clipboard history..
To access this function you have to enter Setting, log into System and mark Clipboard, is one of the last options on the left. In the image we have indicated how to disable history so that no trace remains of what you copy.
But when you also want to make sure you erase all the clipboard data, you have a couple of ways to do it. The first and simplest is pressing the bottom button in the window that we have opened: Clear clipboard data. If you have the history active you can mark it.
Another way to quickly erase it on any computer and in a matter of seconds is pressing Windows and V on the keyboard at the same time. The Clipboard panel will then open. If you click on the three points, as in the image, you can select to delete history.
As you can see, everything we have taught you can be done in a very simple way in a matter of seconds. If you are copying and pasting your passwords, it never hurts to do so to protect your private information as much as possible.
