Steps:
1. Run Game
2. Try to paste in complex random generated password.
3. Fail miserably and squint while trying to read it to type it in. :P

i saw a streamer mention the same thing. disabling this feature is a security precaution used by web sites and apps that need to be more secure because of financial exchanges.

Yeah, I was surprised copy/paste wasn't available either.

I can understand from certain security perspectives but in the future with authenticators involved, I think it should be made.

However, this isn't technically a bug. :)

God yes, please do this. (Or let us change our passwords, one or the other.)

I'd be happy with a stay logged in option, so I just don't need to keep typing it in.

Or both. I keep every password that's capable of being copy-pasted at maximum length and complexity randomized and stored more securely. If I can't change it or C/P it, I have to either write it down or make it something I can remember, neither of which is terribly secure.

It be fine once random generated passwords go away.

My password sucks it has multiple lowercase L's, and cap I's. Took my so many times to get it right :(

I though it was bad enough when I had one. They just need to use a different font in their e-mails.

I would suggest anyone with what appears to be I's or l's to paste the password into a word file and change the font to Times New Roman or something that will display the I with the cross marks.

In addition to paste, it would be nice to be able to select the password selection and delete its contents.

Example use case:
1. I type some stuff in the password section
2. I realize I made a type
3. I so something like ctrl-a/shift-home and then delete/backspace
