Character Copy is a lightweight KeePass plugin that integrates into KeePass' entry menu and allows users to securely copy individual characters from an entry's protected string fields, such as the Password field.

The plugin provides the basic functionality provided by the PICKCHARS placeholder, however it does so on all entries (without modifying the password database) and with a lightweight interface.


Download the latest release

  1. Ensure you have KeePass version 2.x
  2. Copy the DLL named 'CharacterCopy.dll' into the KeePass directory (where the KeePass.exe is) or a subdirectory of it.
  3. Restart KeePass in order to load the new plugin.


  1. Right-click on an entry to bring up its context menu
