Easily copy passwords to clipboard in Keychain Access
Authored by: jms1 on Dec 15, '08 12:39:20PM

This is no great secret, I've been doing it for several years now. If anything, this makes the password generator a better tool - if every web site and/or email account has a different 17-character random password, being able to "copy" them from the keychain and "paste" them into the password field on the login form makes the whole thing usable. Personally, I don't even bother trying to remember the passwords anymore.

Yeah, I was doing this for awhile (generating a long password, saving an entry for it in the keychain, then copying/pasting the password to Safari or whereever).

But now that I got 1password as part of a promo package, it just makes using longer, more secure passwords so much easier.

For the use of passwords in Safari, I let Safari save these directly in the Keychain, and then it automatically shows the password in the login form. No need to manually copy-paste from the keychain.
