This app creates a private clipboard that cannot be read by other apps.
It doesn't need any permission to run.
It needs Android 6 (Marshmallow) or newer.

Get it from XDA labs.

To copy text to your private clipboard:
  • Select the text to be copied.
  • In the context menu, select the icon to see further options - normally a three-dots icon.
  • Choose "Copy to PClip".

To paste text from your private clipboard:
  • Select the text to replace. If you don't want to replace an existing text you need to write a couple of characters and select them.
  • In the context menu, select the icon to see further options - normally a three-dots icon.
  • Choose "Paste from PClip".

To view/manage clipboard history:
  • Choose the icon at the top right of the main page.
  • Or, choose "PClip history" in the context menu.
  • Or, use the quick settings tile.

There is a paid version that offers a few extra things, like the private notes, the black theme and possibility to paste to editable fields that don't offer the "three dots" menu: "Secure Clips".

If you want to auto-sync clipboard between your devices you can use EasyJoin "Pro". Also works on Android Q using private clipboard.

Very cool, thanks! Didn't even realize I needed this til I saw it. That's an indication of a useful app, imo. It took a bit of experimentation to figure out because the 'copy' and 'paste' look the same (screenshot).

LOL every android device is a unique case. The complete strings are "Copy to Private Clipboard" and "Paste from Private Clipboard".

Useful in an immense manner. Thanks for backporting this to devices that aren't on 10! Great idea

Strings of version 2 (PrivateClipboard 1.0-2.apk) are entirely visible? Or should i have to remove "to" and "from"?

Is there a way of utilising it from the address bar in chrome say? As I get another default cut/cut/paste menu there. Click image for larger version

This problem reminds me of this Android 10 'feature': "However, apps that have a long name and multiple targets (like ES File Explorer in the screenshots above) may suffer. The target's title doesn't display so you may not know which section of the app you're sharing to." https://www.androidpolice.com/2019/0...betical-order/
