    I understand the issue, but I’m not crazy about disabling the paste function in the email confirmation field. Many people will copy/paste their email address from elsewhere on their computer (like their address book) and paste it in both fields. Disabling pasting here will prevent them from being able to do that, which would result in frustration for the user.

    This would be technically possible and not actually too difficult to achieve, so I’m not worried about the code for it, but I’m very hesitant to make any changes that inconvenience users. If I did add this, then I would most likely add it as an option that the site owner can choose to activate, so it doesn’t just automatically apply to everyone.

    I’ve added an issue on GitHub for this: – and I will think about and then add it in if I feel like it’s worthwhile. You aren’t the first person to request this feature 🙂

    Thanks for posting!
