    My work has a public WiFi network which requires a login/password after connecting. I'm not sure what these types of wifi gateway type things are called so I'll refer to it as an interstitial.

    When you register a username to be able to access it I receive a text with a long string of numbers to use as my password. In iOS8 I could copy and paste the code into the password box however in iOS9 pasting is disabled (presumably for security).

    Does anyone have any ideas how I can get around this other than writing it down on a bit of paper? I can't use the app switcher to even peek at the code because the interstitial closes each time you switch away from it.

    I now believe the correct term is "Captive portal". Hope that helps.
