I use the clipboard manager diodon, but I think this problem is relevant to all clipboard managers on Ubuntu.

If I copy a password from keepass (the tool I use to manage my passwords), then the password gets stored in the history of the clipboard manager.

I would like to avoid this.

Is there a way to copy+paste a password from a password manager into the application, without getting stored in the clipboard manager?

I am willing to change my tools (diodon, keepass) if this feature is possible with other tools.

copyq has an option to prevent storage of passwords copied from Keepass (or other apps).

With diodon, there should also be an option to exclude certain apps, presumably under Ubuntu Settings > Security and privacy > Files and applications
