Ability to Archive or Hide Passwords

Ability to Archive or Hide Passwords

Pretty straightforward. I have many older passwords that I likely won't use and would like to hide or archive. Yet I am always surprised when I have to go scrape up a PW that's 8 years old I never thought I'd use again.  So I don't want them deleted. I can create a separate folder called "Archive" and place them there, but then I lose my original folder & password hierarchy. If I could check a box called "Archive" then the GUI and/or Settings could give me opportunities to view them or not. Generally they would be out of my search results unless I checked the box that said "Include Archived Passwords". Rule based dynamic smart folders could also be very useful. 


I gotta weigh on this one.. the long list of scrolling that we have to do as we need to keep the old ones just in case but not for everyday use. This has to be made easier.

It would be helpful if you could switch off certain vaults or combine vaults into groups. Often several vaults are used together, e.g. mail, shopping, e-banking without a company.

Or an archive vault, which can be searched in the overview, but neither username nor password is displayed in the forms.

I'm struggling to believe that this isn't a thing yet. Using identities isn't a practicable solution given the steps required to move a single item, and the nuclear option of deleting is certainly not a goer.

This would be very useful for our business. 

We have many logins that are no longer in use, but would like to keep for reference. 

It's annoying when you want to search for something and they come up in the search results.

Yeah, I too can't understand how this feature is not thought of or implemented already. 


I have for example a bunch of old credit cards, cancelled insurance policies, addresses etc. I want to for example with the click of a button archive, and hide all old insurances in the insurance tab, but also have them for old reference.


And no, I shouldn't need to come up with workarounds to do that. 


Common Lastpass, step it up!

Archive could actually be a great feature for LastPass. I have to agree with sincitizen99  




It's difficult to imagine why this hasn't been implemented already and would be greatly appreciated, especially considering recent changes to LP's business model. We need an Archive function.

Awesome feature,   I have used lastpass for about a decade and my password library was getting beyond a joke,    So  I have just had to go over my password list and remove old accounts.   

I was also getting messages like duplicate passwords,  all fun stuff,  the thing is the servers and or accounts referenced probably no longer exist in the real world  however we were getting that odd request to retrieve an old password.    Kind of funny as I quit the charity over 5 years previous and had handed over all of the passwords. 


Definitely a +1 from me. So difficult to look for password these days when the expired ones are still in here.

I've signed up just to agree with this, after searching how to archive passwords.

I'm not particularly familiar with all the capabilities, but assumed LastPass would already do it!
