It goes without saying that a password is supposed to remain a secret. Another point to remember is that during an operation like a password reset, passwords tend to be vulnerable. To ensure that password resets happen efficiently and accurately, it is strongly recommended to disable the copy and paste option in the password fields.
Generally, there are two fields involved while resetting passwords: New password and Confirm new password.
Most organizations tend to use password masking (replacing the characters in a password with bullet points or asterisks) to prevent over-the-shoulder snooping. While this is beneficial, if it's coupled with the ability to copy and paste passwords from one field to another, it could become disastrous.
Imagine a user resetting their password. They have a password in mind and type it out in the first field. Since the password is masked, the user is not able to view the spelling mistake they've made while typing the password. Now if they copy and paste the same password into the Confirm new password field, they might not realize that the password they had in mind was not the password they actually created for their account. As a result, they might end up locked out of their account the next time they try to log in.
