Search Engine with Wildcard support
When searching for Passwords the Wildcard feature should be implemented. Also definded search with wildcard statements would be ideal.

I second this suggestion or just support dictionary lookups for whole words within a full entry.
[text copied from Passwork response]
For example, take a password with name =“sOme wonDerful name”
First of all, the string is reduced to one register and split, and we get an array:
[some, wonderful, name]
After that, for each word separately, its substrings are found starting from the first and ending with the 5th character, as a result we get an array:
[s, so, som, some, w, wo, won, wond, wonde, wonderful, n, na, nam, name]
When the user enters a string in the search field, the entered data is also converted to one register and divided. After that, Passwork compares the array entered by the user and the arrays created during the creation of passwords. When the elements of the arrays match, Passwork displays the password in the search results.
Note that substrings are formed up to the 5th character, and a whole word is written. Therefore, if you enter wonder in the search field, you will not see this password in the search results. To search for the password from the example, enter w, wo, won, wond, wonde or wonderful.
Currently, if you're trying to find the password for “privateinternetaccess”, searching for “private” won’t turn up results but “priv” will.
Logically, someone will know at least one word in the entry they are searching for, so someone will type that whole word. This is fine if the words in the entry are separated, but if it's a URL or login where words are likely to be without spaces, searching by whole words likely won't return desired results.
