I have stored several password that I use for desktop applications, whenever I want to use them I have to edit the password item, press the reveal password button, and then copy the password.
It would be nice if the password items from vault landing page had a button for copying the password to the clipboard.
I agree that copying the password by a button would be great. I usually use autofill on personal computers, but my work computer won't allow extensions. I have to copy paste which is four clicks vs two.
Definitively a needed one
My work computer doesn't allow the plugin. To launch and sign in to a page I must click at least four different buttons. Could you make the launch button into a launch and sign in? Thanks, Brian
The problem is that without a browser extension how could you get a "a lauch and sign in" action?
A bottom that allow you to copy the password (or the username) is an easier thing to ask for.
I use LastPass for various desktop applications, but I also almost always have Chrome open on my computer with the extension installed. I use the App Switcher (MacOs: Command + Tab) to bring me to Chrome. Then I have the LastPass extension set to open with the keyboard shortcut Control + L (you can set this in the extensions page in Chrome, chrome://extensions/). Once the extension is open, you can just start typing for the name the entry in the vault. Then arrow keys to navigate to the correct entry and to the dropdown that says Copy Password.
I know it's a lot of keys, but if done all from the keyboard, it takes about 1.5 - 2 seconds. This is actually the sole reason I use LastPass, for the ability to access passwords easily and quickly using only the keyboard. None of the other password managers I tested had this ability.
Now just waiting for an encrypted clipboard manager....
I totally agree to opening post and would add: Maybe you could swap out the "delete" function on the tile-view for a "copy-password" function.
I don't need the delete option as frequently or promptly as copy password. That should be a rather quick fix.
I'd be happy if you could add this.
Plus one on this, it is definitely a needed button. As a temporary workaround, right click the entry (anywhere on the website box, it does not matter if things get highlighted) and you can select copy password from that menu.
From a UX perspective, it seems completely obvious that you would want to 1-click copy password from these screens. I don't know how this was such an oversight. I hope they add it.
This would also be useful for the browser extension. Have dedicated buttons to copy the username and the password. There doesn't seem to be a need to hide such highly used-features under a menu.
