Answer me please, which phone can I buy with 50k
Re: You Are Actually Giving Away Your Personal Data When You Copy And Paste It by olioxx(m): 8:51am On Oct 14
OP copy and paste is stored on your phone RAM, there is a temporary cache on your phone attached to every app that use input and output.
...
When you copy and paste, it is stored in that temporary cache.
..
If you are using the latest Andriod, when you go to phone settings you can clear out all the cache and then you are safe.
...
Just make sure you are not using 3rd Party Keyboard and you are ok.

I wish smartphones have clipboard access permission but they don't have, once you copy anything (it goes into the clipboard) it is a public access area - almost every app in your phone can access, read and copy the information in your clipboard. It's like anything uploaded to the internet via http, it can be accessed by anyone who wishes to have the information.

Let me make it simple - Stop copying and pasting sensitive personal information in your phone like email, passwords, credit card details, bank accounts etc.
Your phone clipboard is a public access area and any app can collect and use any data in the clipboard.
Check out how to go about it securely in this Video...

I think you can access the clipboard then on blackberry smart phones.

If you're using Google Voice number. Stop copy and paste. The number gets blocked almost instantly.
