Any object that is lifted or moved by a permanent magnet acts as a temporary magnet. These objects usually stop being magnetized when the permanent magnet is taken away or soon after its taken away. For example paperclips can be temporarily magnetized.

A temporary electromagnet needs electricity to work. When it's turned on, it produces a magnetic field. When its turned off, it drops the magnetic field.
