Details about "Clipboard protection"?

Recommended Posts

I noticed there is "Clipboard protection" option enabled by default under Secured Browser settings.
However there is very limited description about this feature. (https://help.eset.com/eis/17/en-US/idh_config_opp.html)
What does "Clipboard protection" actually do? How does it work? Does it scan clipboard all the time? Is it done offline or online?

Clipboard protection ensures that payment data you enter in a secured browser is not modified by malware if running on the machine.

So what "Clipboard protection" does is

  • When user pastes text from clipboard to a sensitive input form (ID, password, PIN, etc.?) in a financial-related web site (bank, etc.?), ESET immediately compares the pasted text and clipboard then warns the user if they are different

? Is this done completely offline?
