Bank Of America removes paste functionality for password field in mobile app

Posted on Thursday, July 28th, 2016

Caught this conversation on Twitter earlier today

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.
