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

+1!  +5!  +10!  I would label this CRITICAL functionality.  Some of us in enterprise and professional IT roles can amass 1000s of logins.  Being able to manage at this scale is not a nice-to-have,  it is essential functionality for the product to be viable.


My use-case:  I have a folder called "zARCHIVE" full of passwords I dont want to delete but also dont want cluttering up my production environment.

I have followed the directions to create a separate Identity called "ARCHIVE".  I have shared all my archived logins to this new profile.  HOWEVER, the old p/ws remain in my "All" ID, in the zARCHIVE folder.  And if i try to delete them after sharing to the other ID, then the logins disappear from BOTH.


So separate identities is not even a workaround/bandaid/hack solution.  IMO it is a non-solution.


Perhaps after LogMeIn completes spinning LastPass back out into a standalone business unit then they will focus on the product and the users again?  One can hope.


I have also registered, just to Upvote this request. 

Please, this would be great.

This is critical functionality for enterprise IT users. Just echoing the others here...

Unfortunately I the "archive identity" workaround does work for my business account, so I would welcome this, too.

This is a must have! Not only for security and productivity, but also for nostalgia. I'd like to always be able to show those old accounts I used to use. These accounts in a tag/folder "archive" etc., still count for the built-in security checks and it messes with my overall stats/result of the LastPass Vault safety review.

I upvoted this awhile back and have been following it for over a year. What discourages me is that I see no indication that the product team is even looking at this suggestions, much less the supporting comments, in this community. Not only based on this one but on others I have been monitoring as well. Looks like it is time to find an alternate solution.

This really must be an easy tweak to the system for such a powerful feature; I can't understand why there is any debate/delay over implementation? C'mon LastPass, you've got to do better, especially now you're charging and sneaking in 50% increases.  


Please add this feature, the “Identities Workaround” doesn’t work well for shared passwords and is difficult to maintain.  Each time I add a new password I have to remember to add it to my “Active Passwords Identity”.  With LastPass Families it’s impossible to keep everyone in sync.  A simple “Archive Check Box” that stoped a password from being suggested and automatically hid it from the default vault view would do the trick.


Registered to upvote this feature request. An easy archiving flow is crucil on LastPass. I use it to keep track of my digital life (incl. history), so deleting items is not viable.
