@scichelli Hi Sharon, thanks for your question. This feature is no longer available for our mobile app. ^bl

It appears BofA have removed the paste option when filling in the password field on their mobile app, rendering password managers entirely useless.
This is a huge security concern, as now they’re forcing people to use easily memorable, insecure passwords.
We strongly advocate the use of a password manager, as we feel the risks of a single point of failure / single point of attack (just make sure your master password is strong!) don’t outweigh the benefits of random, secure passwords.
