                                • Stop monitoring my clipboard please

                                  I tried to disable clipboard in recent settings but Microsoft Launcher is still monitoring my clipboard, the disable button for clipboard only control the UI show or hide the clipboard content, this is ridiculus, since many password manager copy the password to clipboard so we the user can paste to a particular app, this clipboard monitoring feature expose user to security threat and should be fixed asap.
