*6. Auto-clear clipboard ''n'' seconds after copying it there - this security feature prevents you from having to remember to clear the clipboard of generated passwords. If checked, the clipboard is automatically cleared ''n'' seconds after pressing the Copy to Clipboard button, where ''n'' is the value entered in the associated input field. However, before clearing the clipboard, PasswordMaker checks that nothing else has been copied there since the generated password. If something has been copied there since then, the clipboard contents are not cleared. This prevents other data in the clipboard from being overwritten

With the myriad possibilities for required subdomains, PasswordMaker can't account for them all. It includes some common ones -- the list of which grows from release to release (the ''default'' list). However, you are free to add/remove your own using the '''Special Domains Dialog'''. Your customizations to the special domains list are exported when using the '''Export Preferences''' feature, and imported when using the '''Import Preferences''' feature (providing the file being imported contains special domains). In this way, you can easily transfer customized lists to other PasswordMaker installations.

PasswordMaker uses what are called URL patterns to detect when you are on a page for a particular account that you have specified.
+
===Menu===

+
-
'''<SPAN style="color: red;">Important</SPAN>''': The pattern(s) you define should be secure and specific enough to avoid false positives and prevent phishing attacks.
+
-
 
+
-
PasswordMaker supports two types of patterns: ''wildcard'' and ''regular expression''.
+
-
 
+
-
=====Wildcard Patterns=====
+
-
 
+
-
''Wildcards'' are pervasive throughout computing; you've most likely seen them before. The asterisk (<TT>*</TT>) represents zero or more characters and the question mark (<TT>?</TT>) any ''single'' character in the URL to match. In Unix, this is referred to as globbing. These wildcard characters are often used for matching filenames.<br>

=====Regular Expression Patterns=====
+
-
 
+
-
''Regular expressions'' are also pervasive throughout computing, although they are sometimes considered an advanced topic. Regular expressions are like "wildcards on steroids" because they are more powerful and flexible, but their goal is similar to wildcards: define a means with which to match arbitrary text.
+
-
 
+
-
For those already familiar with regular expressions, PasswordMaker adheres to the [http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Core_JavaScript_1.5_Guide:Regular_Expressions JavaScript 1.5 regular expression] syntax. When in doubt, refer to this guide. Do not surround regular expressions with forward slashes like this: /abc/
+
