How do I find expired entries and how do I hide them?

Follow

In the Edit > Options > Layout > Expired entries area, you can set how you want to deal with expired entries in general and during search.

Select the "Hide expired entries from the lists" option if you don't want expired password entries to be displayed in the main window. However, please note that those entries continue to be part of your database even though they are not displayed in the main window anymore. With the "Hide expired entries from the search results" option, you prevent entries that have already expired from being taken into account in the search or from being displayed in the search results.

What does the red "prohibition sign" mean?

If you see a red "prohibition sign" in front of an entry in the main window it means that this entry has expired. The entry is still part of your database and you can use it, however, it has expired because you set a certain time limit.

In general, this has no effect on using the password. Actually it should only help you to identify expired passwords more easily if you want to change them, for example.

Overview of expiring passwords

In order to easily detect all passwords that have already expired or will expire soon, we recommend activating the "Expiry date" option under Edit> Options > Layout so that the expiration date is shown in the main view.

Under Tools > Clean-up you can also create a list of all entries that are about to expire or already have expired on a certain date.
