Is CloudClip Safe To Use With 1Password?

Is it safe to use a third-party clipboard like CloudClip if one is using 1Password? I ask because 1Password copies one-time passwords and other items to the clipboard to facilitate ease of access, and I was wondering if I would inadvertently be granting CloudClip access to those items. Is this an unfounded concern?

    I assume you mean CloudClip, the app I mention from time-to-time as a good clipboard manager. It is in the Mac App Store.(Not ClipCloud as you spelled in your original question, which may be an a different app).

    Actually, they have already thought of this. CloudClip has an option for you for exactly this. You can enable “Ignore 1Password” in the CloudClip options.

    I’m not really concerned about CloudClip’s access, as they are using iCloud to facilitate sharing. So you aren’t sending your passwords through anything other than your own encrypted iCloud data. But it is a valid concern to not have your passwords appear in your list of previous copied data for minutes, hours or even days after you copy them. So it makes sensate have that turned on, especially if you are using your Mac in a non-private location.

    Yes, that’s what I meant. Thank you for the quick response. =)
