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.

You can download the apk from the site: https://easyjoin.net/my_other_apps.html

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).

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/...apps-that-try-to-game-the-alphabetical-order/

I like what the new feature sounds like, without ever having used it. I guess devs might have to go with shortened/abbreviated names if there are multiple targets?

I think they don't have to include the app name but only the action name, since the app name is always shown as 'title' of the action. But a shorter action name is always a good idea as can be seen in the changelog of 'Private Clipboard'! ;)
Versions
PrivateClipboard 1.0-2.apk
- Strings "Copy to Private Clipboard" and "Paste from Private Clipboard" replaced from "Copy to MyClip" and "Paste from MyClip" because the original strings was not entirely visible in some devices

I can use the dots to get it to copy to pvt clip, but when I try to paste therea no option. Also, opening the app just gives a blurb, no settings or options. what wrong?

I'd like to point out that this app doesn't seem to integrate well with Telegram (and maybe even other apps). The copy/paste to MyClip options simply don't appear, when selecting some text in Telegram. The button bar that appears after selecting some text in Telegram (the bar with the normal "Copy", "Cut", "Paste" buttons) is white, while in other apps (in which Private Clipboard works) it's dark. This has something to do with it, I guess.

It seems that in Telegram they have changed the standard context menu but forgot/decided not to implement the standard Android APIs.

Does Private Clipboard protect you from malicious/spying apps usung tje clipboard hol

Does Private Clipboard protect you from malicious/spying apps usung the clipboard hole?
I heard ALL apps can see the clipboard's contents, whether in the background, or having any reason to see it, then send out its contents to that app's spying makers.

Is this a truely separate clipboard or just a second one? One guy commented that he liked it for being a 2nd clipboard, so it made me think.

    Update 1.1

    • It's possible to save multiple texts in the clipboard.
    • The entries in the context menu have been changed to reflect the name of the app, i.e. from "Copy to MyClip" to "Copy to PClip".
    • A new entry ("PClip history") has been added in the context menu that displays the list of texts saved in the clipboard.
    You can download the new version from XDA labs.

    Suggestions

    For me this only works as a normal clipboard, not a multiple clipboard list.

    FYI it's called "private clipboard" in apps, not "MyClip". It would be nice to be able to manage the clipboard list (ie: select which clipping from a long sequential list gets pasted), edit clippings, merge multiple clippings with custom delimiters such as a paragraph break, create running lists while copying, etc.

    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".
