Is keystroking passwords secure?

Recommended Posts

I've set up a simple Hotkey-triggered NSAppleScript that will keystroke the query currently in the clipboard:


on alfred_script(q)
	tell application "System Events"
		keystroke q
	end tell
end alfred_script


My question is, what if I use this to keystroke passwords? Can I do it securely?


Obviously there is a clipboard history that needs to be disabled.

Are there also Alfred logs somewhere that keep the results of the workflow/applescript?

Does it matter if the script uses the "compile" settings or not?
