Bug Description

I use a password manager that has the useful option of putting a password in the clipboard. Aside from clearing the whole list, is there a way to delete just the list items I select?

The delete key doesn't do it. Ubuntu 16.04 (amd64).

If not, this is a security bug.

Currently it is not possible to delete one single item.

It is possible however through the "Security & Privacy" feature to clear data by time or also exclude application such as password managers not to store any data.

See blog post for more details:

Deleting single or selection item has been proposed as plugin in Blueprint

Marking this issue as wishlist therefore.
