Add "Archive" tag to passwords to allow to deactivate witout deleting

When credentials (user, password) no longer are required, they can only be removed by deleting. Sometimes it is useful to keep them e.g. to archive the username.


Passwords that are tagged with "Archive"

- must not be suggested when logging in

- must not be listed in folders. Search should be capable of including or excluding archived passwords.

- must not be reviewed in security check and not listed in security dashboard

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!


I have been looking for this feature to be added for a while now to manage the 800+ entries we have.   In our case, we have logins for businesses that have been sold, but the logins and secure notes can be relevant for up to a year or two afterwards for very infrequent use (like tax logins, insurance, etc.).


Another user accurately described why the proposed solution of "identities" does not work in its current form.   Not only would you need to create the "Archive" identity, but you would need to create the inverse to keep only the passwords you want visible since the "All" identity currently shows logins from all identities.  Plus, you cannot have the system default to creating a new password, secure note, etc. in your preferred identity, they just get dropped into "All."   That then requires further active maintenance to place them in the correct identity.


Also, giving Admins the ability to archive centrally rather than by user would be a very welcome feature as well.
