WARNING: NEVER CUT AND PASTE PASSWORDS ON AN ANDROID PHONE!

I have been used a app on my phone for a while now. I was idly messing with with my keyboard when I discovered a button. To my horror when I pressed this I found my last 20 clipboard entries which included that I had cut and pasted! There is no way of turning this function off. When I researched this further I found that apparently ALL the apps on your phone can see this data! This is a major flaw!

This article really helped me when I installed Debian 10 on my laptop and found that I had no Wifi. It was all down to the lack of drivers for my Broadcom Wifi card. Once I installed the broadcom-sta-dkms packages my wifi worked like a dream!
