Terminal seems to be preventing text expansion by locking secure entry

I was running vim in the terminal and tried to use Alfred text expansion, but it does not work there.

It gives the following error:

Terminal seems to be preventing text expansion by locking secure entry 

 

For example, I have a snippet:  ";;dd"  for "date expansion". This works in all other text fields like TextEdit, Notes, and browser pages. But it does not work in terminal editor VIM.

 

How to avoid this error?
