I installed Secure Clips on my phone. And now?
In a nutshell, just long click on an editable text field and select the "three-dots" icon to copy and paste text and see the clipboard history. continue reading
To copy text to your secure clipboard:
  • Select the text to be copied.
    • In the context menu, select the icon to see further options - normally a three-dots icon.
    • Choose "Copy to SecClips".
  • Or, if you have given permission to use the "accessibility service", long click the selected text and click on the corresponding icon in the popup window.
  • Or, share the text you want to copy with "Secure Clips".

To paste text from your secure clipboard:
  • Select the text to replace. If you don't want to replace an existing text you need to write a couple of characters and select them.
    • In the context menu, select the icon to see further options - normally a three-dots icon.
    • Choose "Paste from SecClips".
  • Or, if you have given permission to use the "accessibility service", long click the text field (even without selecting a text to replace) and click on the corresponding icon in the popup window.

To view and manage the secure clipboard and notes:
  • Choose the corresponding icon at the top right of the app.
  • Or, choose "SecClips" in the context menu.
  • Or, use the quick configuration tile. You may need to give the application permission to create popup windows to use this feature.


If the app you're using doesn't show the "three-dots" icon when you long press an editable text field, you must give Secure Clips permission to use the accessibility service: read more.
Is it mandatory to give permission to use the "accessibility service" to use this app?
No, it's not mandatory.
This permission is not required if the editable text fields offer the "three-dots" context menu.
What do I have to do to give Secure Clips permission to use the accessibility service?
The various devices may have the setting to configure accessibility permission in different places in the Android settings.
Normally, you open the Android settings, select "Accessibility", select "Secure Clips" and activate the switch.

TIP: you can open the device settings to set the accessibility permission from the app.
I gave permission to use the "accessibility service" but I don't see the popup to copy and paste text (and/or the quick settings tiles doesn't work).
In some devices it is necessary to give permission to the application to display popups from a background service. The setting is in the app's information page.
Open the Android settings, select "Apps", select "Secure Clips" and search for the permission in one of the items on this page.
I have issues with the license check, what can i do?
You should know that the license is primarily controlled by a Play Store service and only secondarily from this app.

If you have issues with the license control, follow these steps:
  • Open the Play Store app and select the account you used to purchase this app.
  • Open the Android settings and clear the cache and data of the Play Store application.
  • Reboot the device.
  • Connect to internet.
  • Wait a few minutes.
  • Open the Secure Clips app.
Note: You have to install the app from Play store.
