Why did Avast password provide "copy" button? Is it safe?

Question as in title.
As far as I know, clipboard is not safe to store password.
And for PC, is pressing copy on another text completely remove password from clipboard?

Hi,

The copy button is there in the event that you need to use it for example with an application that does not work with Avast Passwords.
In Windows, if you have Clipboard history "On", then it will not replace the previous content. You will have to delete it from the clipboard's history.
If clipboard history is "Off" then it will replace the previous content.
