Since you're reusing passwords, a security challenge should flag them:

I also received that email today. PLEASE let me know if you get a satisfactory solution, and I will do the same. Thanks!

A use case for this is that recently, there's been a scam where someone takes a password from a breach, and emails you an extortion email, putting your password in the subject line as "proof" that they have access to compromising material about you. Search by password would allow you to easily verify if the password they obtained for you is an active password or not, and it would also allow you to, assuming you use a unique password per site, work out which site has been breached, change your password, and take whatever other precautions are necessary given that you know your password for that site was out in the open.

It would also be useful if the password search would return sites where you used to use a particular password, and when you used it, since then you could know what may have been accessed by attackers in the past.

I'm in the same boat as accounts843. Just received a threatening email myself containing an old password that I haven't used in a long time. I was looking for a way to do a search in LP and have it show me the sites where I still use that password.
I understand that we can export them to a file, then delete it when we're done, but those few moments where my whole vault is in a flat file is concerning.
PLEASE LP Dev team - give us the capability to search our vault for a specific password and list the sites using that pw!

+1: I have the same, some scammer emailed me about my throwaway password. Especially for this exporting to a textfile on desktop is anything but desirable

+1 : My wife just seen the same scammer email, with an old password - which is why I'm on here looking into checking we aren't still using that password anywhere - It's very concerning when you see that email initially - Pleased others are seeing the same crap, confirms the opinion that it's a scam and they don't have access

I have started getting a bunch of scam emails quoting my passwords to me. Thankfully this are very old crappy passwords that I no longer use for anything other than throwaway logins I do not care about, but was forced to create in order to access some website, which is no doubt where they got them from.
However I would like to search my lastpass to make sure I don;t have thems till in use on any important sites.

this is the scam email I am referring to FYI

I'm the same as all the other recent posts in the thread: False Blackmail attacks re porn habits.

Dozens of scam emails saying they've "hacked my email" or other, with some 6 year old password included, and have video of me beating off to some "freaky porn". Of course, I know this is false. Mostly because I installed covers over all my computer and phone cameras over a year ago. But also because the passwords are outdated, and lastly, because IF any blackmailer had such images or video, they would surely send it to you as part of the threat.

Anyhow, that was one thing. Then, recently, I got the same kind of scam with a 52sd33JI9305#^SllDk style of password, the kind that is generated by LastPass - and that got me more scared. Now I can't know that it's a 6 year old password that I don't use. Now I NEED to know if that is one of my passwords, and if so, which web account is it? I need to change my password at that web provider.

I'll do the export method for now, but there should be a built-in tool for this kind of check. Maybe not the normal search window, since that would require un-encrypted storage of our passwords, but maybe a launchable wizard, which asks you for your master password, then allows a search.

If the password was reused for other LastPass entries, then a security challenge will flag it. Otherwise, you can simply view your vault in CSV format, and search for the password there.

I don't like to "extract" and "manage" a file with all my passwords in clear.
If anything happens, even after having deleted it (but not shredded it) , you loose all pass in one shot!

What I need is LastPass to take care of me and SEARCH> my pass for me!
