Saved text on the clipboard gets deleted after an hour

Is there a way to disable it? Or do i have to manually pin every text i wanna keep for more then an hour??
Why an hour? Why not just the next day?

For some more background: The clipboard being erased is actually a security feature as it prevents potential passwords and other private data from staying in memory for too long where pretty much any app could grab them. Also see Android 13 clipboard deletes itself automatically - 9to5Google

This is a privacy / data protection feature. To keep snippets for more than 1 hr, you could use an app like Ruff or Google Keep.

Best wishes,
