Possible to disable show and copy password in browser extension?


Recommended Posts

Is it possible to disable the show and copy password options in the Passwordstate browser extension. That way you could still fill in passwords on websites automatically or by using the icon overlay, but it wouldn't be possible to see the passwords themselves from the browser extension.

Thanks. I guess there's no way to do this only for the extension and not for the Passwordstate website itself?

I was looking for a way to keep the extension signed in without exposing the passwords, and to force a logout of the Passwordstate website (where you would be able to view all passwords) after x minutes.

The reason behind this is that our security team is scared that passwords are exposed when users leave their system without locking it. Therefore we now force a logout of the browser extension and the passwordstate website after 5 minutes, and we require 2FA for signing in again. That may be secure, but it's also impractical.

Hi Jean,


No, you cannot just do this for the extension alone. And that's mainly because users can still see the value of the passwords within the full UI, which defeats the purpose of hiding it in the browser extensions.
